Hi! My name is Madison (@schillian), and I’m the founder of @su.la.po, an editorial platform that discusses beauty in all the ways we consume it – not just product. I’ve made it a mission of mine to produce campaigns for brands that reflect the women of 2018 – our differences should be celebrated, highlighted and showcased to younger generations as part of the mosaic of beauty we live in.
About Her Women Warriors:
My role models are each of the women that have kept true to this mission; who lead with generosity, spirit, and heart in whichever field they exist in. It can oftentimes be difficult not to react to adversity with negativity, criticism and exclusion – but the women who inspire me reach out to have the difficult conversations, do the necessary work, and still live in love while doing so. Cheers to them doing above and beyond what has been asked of them. That is true strength.
Meet our girl, Blaire! She is a 19 year old student in her second year of studying Education to become a French Immersion teacher. She is also a Resident Advisor at her University!
She says “I love to surf and ski, and I am passionate about music and mental wellness. This last year has been a personal struggle as I was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, all while trying to balance being a student and resident advisor. It has affected me in multiple aspects of my life; however, I know that it does not define me. By surrounding myself with the right people this year, I have learned to never be ashamed of my mental illness; I am learning to be a voice, not a victim.”
About her Woman Warriors:
“My mom and my sister have both taught me true strength. They both truly have a heart for others and no matter what they are going through, they always help those around them first. They both stand up for what they believe in, and were both a voice for me when I couldn’t find my won. One of the best things they have both taught me is to dance like nobody’s watching and to be unapologetically me.”
“My name is Sydney I’m 20 years old and in my third year of Hospitality Management. I own a lifestyle blog and photography business. I love to dance, read, and do yoga.”

About her Woman Warrior:
“My mom inspires me because she has raised me to always be kind to others, be positive on the tough days, and always believe I am loved and I have her on my side. No matter what she deals with, family will always be her first priority.”
“I’m a 3rd year Computer Science Student and being in a highly male dominated field can be quite intimidating but my 2 female role models, powerhouses : my mother and grand mother have thought me to look beyond what I identify as but what I have to offer. My mother was the only woman that was in line for a promotion at her previous firm and when selected many looked down at her but she dominated the position beyond everyone’s expectations she showed me that what a man can do a woman can just as well or even better. My grandmother was a single mother and she raised 6 children by herself. She drove to the hospital while she was in labour and shows me time and time again that regardless of whatever you’re going through you’re only able to accomplish everything when you believe. These two women have both dominated in two different aspects which has contributed to the woman I am today.”
Thank you for the submission Ife, we’re completely inspired!

“Ellie and Sam are both kind, caring, courageous and strong women who have an abundance of love to give others. Although they have suffered great loss in their lives and have had many obstacles to overcome, they still find the strength to put others first. They never lose faith when times are tough and believe that tomorrow will be a better day.

“It was my mum and my sister and I for most of our childhood. We were the three musketeers and still are. The two of them are truly my everything. My mum is superwomen, she always has been.
