Interview: Megan Giller

Can you start by telling the readers a little about yourself? 

I've been writing about food for almost a decade, for publications like Slate, Food & Wine, and Fortune, and for the past four years or so I've specialized in bean-to-bar chocolate. I even wrote a book about it! This new craft chocolate movement appealed to me because I've always written about small companies and artisan food. I like to tell the stories behind the food about the people making it, as well as the history of it.

Interview: Veronica Kirin

I grew up in Michigan in a Croatian-American family.  My heritage is very important to me - I try to travel to Croatia yearly to see the rest of the family.  I knew from a young age that I was made to help others, and as soon as I was old enough, I began my Humanitarian career.  I eventually enlisted for two years in the National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) and deployed across America as a disaster relief worker.

Interview: Maria Gonzalez

There is really nothing exceptional about my childhood or family. I belong to a typical Spanish family and I grew up in a working class neighborhood in Madrid. Maybe this, along with being the youngest of four children plus having two sisters and my mum around at all times, very much influenced my life.

Interview: Ash Parsons

Most importantly, I am a first timer. The more time I spend on this mud ball (I’ll be 37 next month!) the more I realize I am still getting used to being here. I am just now figuring out some of the questions I want to ask, with no clue what the answers will be yet. I am finally figuring out what I want to be when I grow up.

Interview: Maggie Germano

I'm a feminist and financial coach for women. I started my business two years ago when I was feeling lost in my nonprofit career and needed to find some passion and inspiration again. I do one-on-one coaching with women, I host a monthly Money Circle gathering for women to talk about money in the DC area, I host workshops about personal finance, and I blog about many issues related to money and how it impacts women.

Interview: Megan Lynch

I’d always wanted to write a novel, but I had issues with self-discipline. I’d always written sporadically: journal entries, blog posts, poetry, and short stories, but I had this idea for a bigger story and it kept pestering me to be written.

Hello, readers! My name is Sara-Jayne, and I'm an ex-publishing marketer and an ex-ex-English as a Second Language teacher.

When I'm not reading books and/or slaying the patriarchy, I like to practice yoga, cook, and try to convince myself to learn Italian.
