This week’s Badass Chick is AC Orellana of East Providence, RI. She’s the creator of @StrongGirlVibes which aims to empower women and girls.
AC is a graphic designer who is also a single mom to a daughter, and knows how important it is to not only build up confidence in young girls but also support fellow women. After a really bad day, she thought to herself, “I’m done with this, I don’t want to feel this way, I can be better than this.” So she took her graphic design skills over to Etsy and social media, with a simple idea: to make empowering prints and mugs with badass sayings like “she needed a hero so that’s what she became.” On social media, she offers a place of encouragement, and her message is really simple: we have to build ourselves – and each other – up.
Loren’s Badass Chick of the Week highlights local women and girls giving back to the community, following their passion and/or breaking stereotypes. If YOU have a Badass Chick you want to see highlighted, email Loren@1033ampradio.com!
