An Invitation for All Women to Stand Together + NEW Book Available!
Women… We are influential, kind and fierce. We are victorious, bold, and beautiful.
What would happen if every woman truly believed these things about herself? What would the world look like if we knew our worth and value - if we knew that it wasn’t defined by our body but by the depths of who we are? What would happen if we stepped into our authentic identity and boldly, honestly and truthfully expressed ourself to the world?
It would be an awakening.
I’ve never met a woman who hasn’t struggled with insecurity - specifically insecurity about their body. Yet, when I feel insecure about my body, I feel so alone. Scrolling, double tapping, commenting, taking it all in. We don’t even realize what is happening, but as we consume perfectly curated feeds, we are brainwashed to believe that those aesthetics are the normal standard. Perfectly displayed, beautiful moments become the expectation for the entirety of our life.
Pixels on the screen, slender women with airbrushed bodies, free of acne, scarring and stretch marks… It suggests even further that this is normal. It demands that you ask yourself the questions “Why don’t I look like that? Why am I different?” We feel less beautiful, we feel like an outcast, and we feel ashamed. This shame causes us to go to extremities in order to attain the standard - we begin creating photoshopped lives - thus feeding the standard of fabrication.

We have to use our voice, stand together and challenge the unjust standards.
According to a study done by Dove, more than 70% of women want the media to portray a more accurate representation of the every day woman. We are not the minority here! So, what does that mean? It means that if we stand together, if we speak up, if we start living by a different standard, then we get to make some serious impact. We can create change. We can start a movement where women are free to be themselves.
It is imperative that we know who we are… Why? Because when we don’t know who we are at the core, we can’t discover our purpose, and ultimately we can’t be a force for positive change in the world. But when we know who we are - the value we carry - we get to live from a place of bold identity where our passion is driven towards our purpose in order to impact the world.
Introducing The Authentic Woman
The Authentic Woman is an interactive book series that empowers women to live authentically as themselves. Its ultimate goal is to awaken the confidence, identity and bravery that already lives inside of you! In it you will find women sharing their stories, practical advice and inspirational pieces that will awaken your true, inherent identity as valuable, capable and beautiful.
It is much more than a book. It is an interactive book - this means that it is meant to create lasting change in your life by providing actionable steps and prompts for immediate application. It is an accurate representation of real women sharing their honest stories and advice. We are speaking up and standing together in order to portray an accurate representation of beauty which means that none of the models have been edited or retouched. We believe women are beautiful as they are.
The first Volume: Beauty Unleashed
Beauty is so much more than appearance. Beauty is found in our dreams and passions, the way we fearlessly embrace life’s seasons, the bravery we display when we take risk, our laughter and smile… Beauty is in our identity. And when we grasp this concept, life becomes more meaningful, more free, more beautiful… Because when we know who we are, we gain the capacity to live out our purpose.
‘Beauty Unleashed’ takes the reader on a journey through discovery, embrace, and transformation. It urges us to grasp our inherent worth as a human being in order to discover our true purpose in life. It kindly tells us to embrace the depths of who we are - every intricacy that makes up our body, mind and soul. It will awaken the passion inside of us to see transformation of the world’s standard of beauty and provide ways that we can actively pursue this change.
