Trailblazers: Sugar Land

The editorial team has a special attachment to our new series, The Trailblazers: Rewriting the Narrative, because so many of us feel that media portrayals of women have been too one dimensional. Today, women are doing incredible things in all fields – from science and technology to finance, law, business, athletics and more.  With the Trailblazers series, we hope to highlight and celebrate female role models, encourage more equal and just representation in the media, and help foster a more tight-knit community locally helping women find mentors, business partners, friends and more.

Below, you’ll find some incredible trailblazers from in and around Sugar Land that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

My ultimate goal is to have a swimsuit/lingerie line along with a lipstick line, in addition to hair and lashes. Read more>>

I started to travel the world since I was young and my family would encourage me to try all kinds of foods. That allowed me to taste many flavors around the globe while immersing myself in the uniqueness of various cultures. Not only do I love exploring, but being able to put my taste buds to test, I am able to share my experience with those who also seek the thrill of discovery of culture through eating. Read more>>

Fast forward to college, where part of my degree plan requires an art class. The mere thought of doing pottery made me cringe, so I begged to be allowed to take photography as my art credit. I already had a deep rooted love for my shutterbug hobby, but within 20 minutes of that first class, I knew I would be a professional photographer. Read more>>
