This fall, New York City becomes the first city in the nation to tackle the issue of girls’ self-esteem and body image. Recognizing that girls as young as 6 and 7 are struggling with body image and self-esteem, (over 80% of 10-year-old girls are afraid of being fat and by middle school, 40-70% of girls are dissatisfied with two or more parts of their body), New York City is launching a self-esteem initiative to help girls believe their value comes from their character, skills, and attributes – not appearance.

I just interviewed this woman about how she started an amazing Mexican artisan shop in the East Village. She has an incredible story.

I talked to her like we were old pals for two hours. Now I’m sitting on the patio of a coffee shop writing my whole story in a moleskin while sipping an Americano. In New York City. Is this real life? If it’s not, I hope I never find out.
