In collaboration with Aerie, and alongside superheroes like Aly Raisman, Busy Phillips and Samira Wiley, I’m sharing my voice on their new platform designed to guide young women in building deliberate lives of strength, grace and courage.
This is part of our Motherhood series—filmed in New York, fresh off the plane, having spent the night prior to flying 20 hours across oceans in hospital with a sick baby, riffing to the camera off the top of my heart with my voice on the rapid de-cline. But that’s the thing: life doesn’t get out of the way when you have kids. It keeps going at the same pace and you have to fight for the things that make you who you are outside of your motherhood. Doing ‘work’ like this makes me who I am. It is a privilege to be a working mother, to be able to do both. Watch the full series here.
