#WCW: Eye On The Prize, Pursue Your Goals
New month, new inspiring ladies.
On this weekly roundup of #womancrushwednesday, we talk about three women who have made an impact on digital media and how they did that. From a CEO to an undergraduate student, it would be hard to not feel encouraged to pursue your goals after reading about these ladies.
1. Kaya Thomas
Kaya Thomas has been making the impossible possible. She co-founded a STEM camp for girls in high school, became a mentor for Black Girls Code, and developed her own app (We Read Too). She has worked for companies such as Apple, Time Inc., and Intuit. She writes for a few digital platforms such as TechCrunch and Fusion when she has the time.
And, guess what? She’s still an undergrad student at Dartmouth. (Is this the part where I say, yass girl?)
2. Jaclyn Johnson
It’s one thing to have founded and become the CEO of your own company, but to do that twice… Jaclyn Johnson said why not? Before Create & Cultivate, Johnson first founded No Subject which is a digital marketing and events agency because she found her niche in brand marketing. Through her experience as an entrepreneur, she started C&C as a space to motivate other female entrepreneurs. C&C has hosted many events, workshops, panels, etc. to advice women who want to start their own businesses.
P.S. Our very own, Jessica Naziri, will be speaking at a Create & Cultivate panel today (Nov 1) in Portland. If you’re in the area, make sure you don’t miss out!
3. Hagit Kaufman
As the Vice President of Brand and Design at Wix, Hagit Kaufman is definitely a boss. As a wife and a mother of three, Kaufman uses her impeccable time management to, well, manage her personal life and career. It is easy to get caught up into your work (especially if you are a leader at a large company like Wix) but Kaufman never fails to enjoy every little bits that life has to offer.
Her favorite quote: “Enjoy the little things life. Because one day you will look back, and realize they were the big things.”
