“I want to change this narrative for my daughters, for my girls, so that they can make choices. That's where your life changes, when you realize that it's about the next generation; it's about leaving a legacy. My mother was first generation here. She took pride in her civic duty, and that was something that she taught me at an early age. When I think of a feminist—I think about her. A few days after I joined [Beautycounter], I felt a lump and two weeks later I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had already planned a gathering to launch my Beautycounter business, and it became my cancer ‘coming out’ event. I remember my husband asking me, ‘Are you sure you still want to do this?’ And I felt like, if there was any time to do one, this was it. I mean, one in eight will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. You shouldn't have to sacrifice your health to feel beautiful. Right now, we have to be our own advocates. Beautycounter is a coalition of women and men who are saying, ‘Question it, take a look at it, it may not be safe for you.’ It's definitely been a gift, this connectedness towards something bigger.” - Novelyn, Beautycounter Consultant from Los Angeles, CA, who leads by example.
