Rosie Molinary creates spaces and experiences for people to answer profound questions that lead to radical self-acceptance, gentle self-awareness, and nourishing self-care so they can connect with their talents and passions to authentically and intentionally live their purpose and help heal the world.
The author of Beautiful You: A Daily Guide to Radical Self Acceptance (Seal Press) and Hijas Americanas: Beauty, Body Image, and Growing Up Latina (Seal Press), Rosie serves as a national Dove Self-Esteem Project educator, offers workshops and retreats, and speaks on self-acceptance, body image, self-care, the Latina experience, non-profit management, and intentional living around the country. She earned an MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard College and a BA in African-American Studies and Urban Education Issues from Davidson College.
A committed activist, Rosie helped found HAMMERS, a non-profit initiative to provide emergency home repair for low income families in her community, and Circle de Luz, a non-profit that radically empowers young Latinas by supporting their transformation through extensive mentoring, holistic programming and scholarship funds for further education. She continues to serve as the Board Chair of Circle de Luz while supporting other non-profits as a board member and consultant.
