Trailblazers: Downtown

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 Downtown that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

I encourage young women to shatter anything obstructing their path to success. Read more>>

The articles and photographs interested me because it involved stories on rural communities, environmental issues, and impoverished areas; all things I encountered while living in Kingston. After high school, I moved to Atlanta to attend Oglethorpe University. Read more>>

A couple years ago, I was involved in a very toxic relationship. After 3 years, I finally found the courage to pack up my belongings and leave. That was one of the hardest, yet best decision of my life. I like to think of it as the beginning stage of my new life, as if I was reborn. I began to live life to the fullest by traveling within and out of the country.  Read more>>
