One Year Later

One year ago today, two girls met at a coffee shop to discuss the possibility of working on a project together. Lots of ideas and concepts but one dream – to inspire women.

These two girls are, of course, Alaina and myself. And while we didn’t launch The Everygirl until 2.22.12 (almost six months ago), it all began for us exactly one year ago today. We’ve been to NYC and Boston and have featured some truly remarkable women. And then came Forbes.
It has been a privilege to be behind something that inspires girls every day. We’ve received emails from girls telling us how The Everygirl has impacted their lives. Girls who have been inspired to follow their dreams or who just want to reach out and say thank you. I am so grateful for each and every email.

I don’t think either of us thought about how much time we’d spend together. How much work this would entail (on top of our full time jobs), or what we were getting ourselves in to. I can’t believe it’s been a year. I’ve had so much fun working side-by-side with Alaina and look forward to what the next year will bring.

Throughout my 20s, I knew that I wanted to help people. I am so
glad that I’ve been able to do so via The Everygirl. To our interns, editorial assistant, the women we’ve featured, and our amazing contributors. Thank you for being a part of The Everygirl. And to all of you. Thank you for your support and excitement. Means more to us than you can imagine.

Happy first meeting-iversary, Alaina. Can’t believe it’s been a year!
