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

I have always been told the phrase, “When you know, you know.” That is a phrase I have been living by my entire life. Ever since I was big enough to hold a camera, the art of visual storytelling has been my fascination. I was constantly creating when I was a kid, whether it be capturing photos to making videos to writing short stories. I even created my own talk show, “The Chloe May Show,” where I would report on local stories and highlights that I found interesting. Read more>>
I started my fashion blog a little over 2 years ago, mainly because I constantly had people asking me where I got my clothes. That is when I buckled down and decided it was time to share this information with the public in one location. So, AmberNicoleFashion.comwas born! Read more>>
