meet the founder

I’m Stephanie, a kid of immigrants, industry veteran, explorer of self and the world, and the founder of selfmade.

While working at the epicenter of the beauty world and reckoning with a mental health crisis, I questioned the current societal standards that make it nearly impossible for us to recognize and appreciate our inherent human value. This was an uncomfortable discovery, and it instilled a deep desire for change which led me to seek out vulnerable conversations about our personal relationships to mental health and self-worth.

I gathered each one of those stories, thoughts, and feelings and turned them into this company. My team and I believe that belonging is a necessary part of life, and despite our individual uniqueness, it’s our collective lived experience of learning to love ourselves that connects us.
