Meet the Team
What started as a serendipitous encounter blossomed into a like-minded mission for Anshu, Gayathri, Gillian, and Shannon (pictured here from left to right). We met through our individual projects building empathy. Gayathri was hosting Fireside Chats on her platform, Campfire Kinship, where she met Shannon. As Shannon ran her campaigns, ‘When You Pass By,’ and ‘Swipe your Stereotype,’ at Beyond Our Image, she connected with Anshu. Gillian and Shannon were photographing and filming together for a food blogger, but their conversations always went back to belonging and creating something for the world.
As these connections formed, it became obvious the collective strengths we have through our lived experiences in multiple, intersectional identities, including culturally diverse, 2SLGBTQIA+, and/or immigrant communities. We are now proudly leveraging our skills in entrepreneurship, storytelling, community building, videography, photography, and trauma-informed coaching.
