Clinique Smart Ideas in Partnership with TED Featuring Dream, Girl

DGSmartIdeas1

Hi Dreamers!

There have been a number of really surreal moments on the Dream, Girl journey- our first day on set, releasing the brand new trailer, moving into our editing suite – but one of the biggest compliments we have ever received is when Clinique & TED called and asked us to share our story.

 

 

Now most of you are my favorite people of all time (our Kickstarter backers), and have seen so much of the backstory, but for our new friends following the Dream, Girl journey, you joined the ride as the film has been in motion. And while we are always dreaming big, our roots and this story begin way before a Kickstarter campaign. It begins with a dream. So when we were asked to reflect on that story and share it in video for these two powerhouse brands surreal isn’t even the best word to describe it — it was more like unreal. Komal and I just kept giggling and looking at each other like “can you believe this is happening?”

Dream, Girl Featured in Forbes

“When Bagwell faced verbal harassment at work, her self-esteem and confidence were eroded. When she looked in the media for examples of women who had handled similar challenges, she found stories that, like the photo-shopped images accompanying them, glossed over real-world struggles. She wanted role models she could identify with, not perfect people but real people. So she searched for women who had overcome obstacles. Their stories inspired Bagwell, gave her self-confidence and the strength to pursue her own dreams. She wanted to share their stories with other women so they, too, could be inspired.”
