After coming across various forms of multimedia that featured some of my biggest heroes following their dreams, I was left with feelings of enlightenment, freedom, and purpose. These works of art not only showed me an adventurous life beyond the modern american dream, but also made me realize that it was never too late to change the direction of your future. Once I came to this conclusion, I wanted nothing more than to take part in helping others feel the same.
-Athena Gomez-Hipolito, Founder of Girlish Writings
Girlish Writings started off as a collective of College Writers, Producers, Photographers, Models, Dreamers, Heart breakers, Hopeless Romantics, and Athletes who were in constant search of inspiration that reflected creativity and individuality. Together, in 2009, we created a website that allowed us to share various forms of fashion, love, beauty, businesses, foods, music, art, charities, talent and stories.
Girlish Writings was a way for us to reveal our dreams, thoughts, experiences and likes while at the same time inspiring readers to embrace creativity, follow their dreams, and to return again to share their own experiences.
It's been five years now and although many of the original Girlish Writers have moved on to greener pastures, there're still a small number who remain forever committed to the Girlish Writings mission.
