15 Women Changing The Wellness Space

Within the wonderful world of wellness, there is one glaring detail that can’t be ignored: how lacking it is in color. But while the wellness industry often seems like one of the most white-washed spaces around, this isn’t the entire reality of the situation.

Rather, there are actually a lot of women of color making wellness a better place, but they don’t always get put in the forefront of the self-care narrative that currently exists online. This is part of the reason we wanted to give some of them a shout-out for all of their hard work; mostly, though, it’s because they’re just doing flat-out amazing things.

Here, then, are 15 women on our radar who are making wellness a new, improved, and more inclusive space for all. Let each of them inspire you to be the best version of yourself.

Thank you so much to Nylon for including my work in this super important wellness highlight <3

  • Sting:That is without a doubt the dumbest thing I have ever heard you say.

I decided to become an artist when I was about your age. I liked to draw so much, I almost hated to go to bed. And then one day, all of a sudden, I couldn’t draw anything. Everything I drew, I didn’t like. I realized that my art up to then was a copy of someone else, things I had seen somewhere. I decided I had to discover my own style. It’s still difficult. But then, the results… They seem to be a little better than before. It’s nice to be a witch, isn’t it? I like the idea - to be a witch, to be an artist, to be a baker… It’s an energy bestowed by the gods or someone, right? Though thanks to it, we do have to suffer at times.
