SOCIAL MEDIA AT ITS BEST
Ashley Rose, Caroline Knapp, Hailie Durrett, Kendall Hanna, Sarah Salinas and Aimee Woodall
by Carla Valencia de Martinez + Batli Joselevitz
There’s something about when a woman compliments another. We tend to take it more to heart, making us believe that we can do anything. That was our guide for the women on these pages. Women whose feeds inspire us to be better, create more, hang out with our toddlers (even when they are throwing adult-size temper tantrums), remind us that we don’t have to travel to discover things right in our own back yard and that there is more to life than our own needs –like giving back. These ladies are shaking up the city for the greater good and that’s why they made our “people” issue.
