Welcome to the Brave Space
As an educator and community activist it’s important for me to create brave spaces. Whether in the classroom or in my relationships being able to have honest conversations is essential to designing your ideal life. I’m kind of in the plus size industry and I’ve been asked to participate in plenty of panels around being plus size and let me just say I’m over it. I’m over the safe talk. I’m over the insane amount of time we spend discussing our outside appearances. I’m over the spaces created to encourage sisterhood however only enforcing cliques…Let’s be honest there aren’t ’t many real opportunities to really connect. I NEEDED real. That same NEED inspired me to create the Brave Space.
Brave Space INC. ‘Styling Lives by Creating Brave Spaces is a culmination of events, periscope conversations and workshops that foster spaces where different points on a journey of learning and growing are acknowledged. Long story short it’s a place where real woman come together to talk about the real trauma they face every day. I believe our truths, pain and need to overcome is the only thing that will create a community of powerful women, who not only look beautiful on the outside but feel true beauty on the inside.
I don’t have all the answers Sway. I won’t pretend like the Brave Space will remedy all of the self-hate in the plus size world however I am willing to create a Brave Space WITH you all to address it in a real way. Over the summer we had a few amazing events! Check out what I’ve been up to. Looking forward to what’s to come!
