I hale from the great state of Pennsylvania. I enjoy empowering women, long cold weather runs and tall cups of dark coffee. More importantly, I STILL BELIEVE IN FAIRY TALES! My only qualm with fairy tales is the notion that a damsel needs saving.
I started DamselNODistress after I found myself with no real plan of how to get my life to look like I always imagined it would be & no resources created for me. I spent far too much time in distress searching and digging for inspiration to get myself together & in the midst of my (then) distress, I came across a pin that read: Be who you needed when you were younger!
I needed a sacred space where women (particularly women of color) can be empowered & celebrated not just one month out of the year. I needed a place where we can learn from one another, share our journeys and feel comfortable discussing any and all topics & so that is exactly what I’ve strived to create.
