My darling, be supreme in all that you do. Take hold of your passion and roam to the end of the earth for your happiness. Never become blinded by doubt. You can soar in even the most unusual forces of storms💥.
Today marks the one year anniversary of going public with my preventative double mastectomy surgery. My goal today and every day is to be a voice for women’s health since testing positive for the BRCA 2 mutation. My mom will always be my hero for showing me how to handle shitty situations with grace and positivity. Thanks also to all of y’all for getting me through such a unique 2017. Girl power to all. #InternationalWomensDay #IWD2018


She’s been through more hell than you’ll ever know, but that’s what gives her beauty an edge. You can’t touch a woman who can wear pain like the grandest of diamonds around her neck👊🏼.
My time in India was filled with interactions with locals. I find that’s the best way to get to know a place. We met the women in the first image at an organization called Sheroes (play on ‘she’ & ‘heroes’) dedicated to helping acid attack survivors find jobs and a new sense of purpose. Their stories and fierce dedication to overcoming the pain continues to inspire me, and you can read the full story on my blog :) The remainder of photos show more badass women who, as we all know, run the world.💞 #InternationalWomensDay #IWD2018


Little girls with dreams become women with vision🧒🏻👧🏾👱🏻‍♀️👩🏻👵🏽.
While working with @humanityandhope in Honduras last month, we visited a community in La Cuchilla and asked what they they valued most/would like to see changed. The community had a surprising answer, one that even came before clean water: Jobs for Women. Humanity & Hope took that to heart and has made a goal to raise $45,000 for the La Cuchilla Chicken Business benefiting women living in the community by creating jobs and giving them a sense of purpose and gender equality. Money raised goes towards start-up & farm production costs for the first year. If you’re looking for ways to make a difference today, donate to this amazing cause (link in bio). Happy #InternationalWomensDay 💞#IWD2018 #Honduras

I can’t think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you’re ignorant of almost everything.

Suddenly you’re five years old again.

You can’t read anything. You have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work. You can’t even reliably cross a street without possibly endangering your life.

Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting guesses. -Bill Bryson
