I feel so blessed by all of the incredible opportunities happening right now @halfthestory. This has been a difficult 2 years in the making, but every day we take steps that bring us closer to our goal. I'm so proud of my team, thankful for the mentors around me, and excited to speak at schools across the country this year! If your interested in having us come to your organization or school drop me a note! 🀘🏼 #letsdothis #halfthestory

🌎 In response to overconsumption and fast fashion, @tictail, a global marketplace for independent brands, is paving the way for a new type of economy. Their new campaign #notfaceless aims to educate shoppers on the importance of supporting SMALL businesses and the SLOW fashion movement. I couldn't be more connected to this as I am surrounded by some of the most talented small business owners trying to navigate their way through this highly competitive space. Remember that every brand has a face behind it. These designers are just like you and I, working tirelessly to produce something that will make an impact in the world. If #notfaceless speaks to you, I encourage you to share why slow fashion and sustainability is important.

When I first visited New York at 13 years old with my grandparents, we woke up at 6am to watch @GOODMORNINGAMERICA live. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that 10 years later, I would be filming for @goodmorningamerica in my New York City apartment for @halfthestory. I am absolutely overjoyed, thankful, appreciative, humbled, and moved. Thank you for believing in @halfthestory since day 1. I am so proud of my TEAM! This is only the beginning.

It's definitely hard to always practice what you preach. I got in a social media hole this weekend, wishing I was out of the city for the fourth with so many of my friends. I was guilty of scrolling through the Snapchat and instagram feeds, wishing I could be there too. Instead, I finished reaching "What Made Maddy Run," a new book that reveals the struggles that Maddy Holleran, a UPENN athlete who committed suicide, as a result of pressure in a connected, social media saturated world. I'm so thankful for the opportunity to collaborate with @littlebrown, @katefagan3, @espnw, & @HALFTHESTORY to create a platform for productive conversation. Stay tuned for the journey that lies ahead. Please consider donating to our @ifundwomen campaign so that we can make a bigger splash. Every dollar counts. ☝🏼link in bio.
