My mother remarried when I was eleven. This caused us to move to a new part of the city and I was enrolled in a new school. Pattern and routine had been my security blanket throughout my parent’s separation and subsequent divorce. Now, I was given a new pattern and a new routine, but both were too new to be considered either.
Jamia Wilson is a story-teller. That much is clear from watching the first 30 seconds of her TED talk, or from spending less than two minutes in her office. She has one of those voices that make you want to ask if she’ll record an audiobook, just so you can listen to it on repeat (not to be creepy or anything…)
She also happens to be the Executive Editor and Publisher of Feminist Press, a non-profit organization that publishes the work of marginalized voices. Before that, she served as Executive Director of Women, Action, & the Media. And her writing has been published in the New York Times, New York Magazine, The Guardian, and Rookie. Pretty cool, if I do say so myself.

I’ve known Amélie for a couple of years now and I’ve always remained completely charmed by her. She is an accessories designer in Paris and, of course, she’s quite chic and quite talented. But the thing that draws me to Amélie the most is her humor. Everything she does has a little bit of an unexpected twist. I loved learning more about her style and what inspires her here, and I hope you do too.
