Meet our founder

Hi, I'm Stephanie. ✌🏼

  • 1986 - 2000

    I was born to a Vietnamese Mom and a Chinese Dad in Florida.

    I was their American dream.

  • 2008 - 2013

    I joined the Obama campaign when I was 21 years old and worked on the inauguration.

    I went on to direct initiatives for Michelle Obama.

  • 2014 - 2018

    I worked at the top of a skyscraper in New York City as Global Product Developer for the biggest beauty brand at the time, MAC.

    I had a mental health breakdown.

  • 2019

    I quit.

    I solo traveled the world, 11 countries + 16 states to explore and understand how different people deal with their mental health and I wrote about my journey.

    I am building selfmade with experts and our community - together we're changing the way we take care.
