Hollywood Trailblazers

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

Weed has a bad wrap and I am here to showcase how I use it as a creative to help bring normalization. For example, explaining the art of waking and baking or giving a step by step process on how I use a certain strain to tap into my flow state.  Read more>>
