Trailblazers: South Boston

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

Fabiana Rendon

Writing this “story” has actually made me think about where my love for the arts rooted. From a young age I was always cutting up magazines and putting mood boards together just for fun or to decorate my room. I attended a tech school – focusing in System Technologies. Read more>>

Maya Mutalik

I have always had a certain affinity for management, creativity, and business experimentation. I entered the world of business when I was in elementary school. I was the 8-year-old who made money by selling string bracelets. Read more>>

Laura Petrovich-Cheney

We all suffer loss regardless of our color, language or economic status. Our hearts break equally and painfully. Sharing my story with others and learning about theirs, I believe, makes us vulnerable, fully human, connected and whole. Read more>>

Catherine Armistead

My experience as a user interface designer considering user behavior for website designs contributes to how I approach the viewer through my artwork. I work with multiple mediums, including metalworking, etching, papermaking, drawing, and fiber arts, and commonly incorporate a variety of media into my work. Read more>>

Nadia Asencio

I was a writer before I could write; I would orate tales and fables to my mother before I was old enough to go to school and, being the great mom that she was (and is), she’d take careful dictation of them all. My mother’s undying support validated my artistic inclinations. Read more>>

Gia Catauro

At a very young age I started drawing and have been ever since. Which lead me to study illustration at Pratt Institute focusing on children’s books. I love how they tell a story or teach lessons through sequence of imagery. Read more>>

Tabitha May-Tolub

We believe there are two things that we all need in order to become amazing human beings: Roots (identity and confidence in knowing who we are and where we come from) and Wings (the skills necessary to navigate and create positive change in this global world). Read more>>

Sonja Botelho Conti

Makeup has always been a passion of mine as far back as I can remember. At the age of eleven I started experimenting with a lip liner as an all day lipstick. It lasted me at least half the day at school, which was pretty impressive back in 1994. Read more>>

Emily Homonoff

Coming from a family of entrepreneurs, I always knew that I’d start my own business. When I was five it was running a spa out of my parents room, today I run a creative agency — things may look a little different but I haven’t changed. Read more>>

Olivia Rodrigues

To be able to expand my creative work and become part of the fashion landscape in the continent that birthed me and highlight the talent that’s there through the Antou Studio platform gives me so much joy and fulfillment. I cannot wait to share more this fall! Read more>>
