On July 19th, Emilia Ferrara hosted a workshop at A Creative DC's studio, Wild Hand, in Brookland, D.C. Million dollar ads splash across 5th Avenue magazines. Runway super models are coached to be "walking hangers". Transformative skincare ingredients contain known carcinogens. It's not news, the beauty and fashion industires are global and lucrative. It can be frustrating to realize that "healthy" approach is counter cultural, and that natural beauty is in the minority.  Emilia and D.C. women discussed as a community how working together helps advance the best standards in the beauty, magazine and health industries.

"a mag world workshop: media nutrition" 

My girlfriend's house, july 12th

On July 12th Emilia joined the young women of My Girlfriend's House to teach a workshop on self-esteem and healthy media nutrition. The idea around this concept is that the media we consume effects young women's view of themselves and mental health. Emilia spent an hour teaching the non-profit's attendees the importance of discerning what is healthy media and how they can build a healthy view of themselves.
