Redefining The American Girl

Glad You Are Here

Welcome to Aja Symone. A unique place where I question and share ideas surrounding the notion of what it means to be an American woman of the day. This is a space for women to share and question ideas that shape their worldview. Here you will find the freedom to be you, share your experience, and bond with other women in the mix.  As you read through such themes as beauty, fashion, lifestyle and politics, I hope you will resonate with some of my shared thoughts. My dedication is to the experience we will share and making sure your voice has a home here.  

To be heard, acknowledged, and respected. With you, I look forward to exploring all the realms of life and ideas that affect women most. From the standard of beauty to the lack of control that women have over their health. We will have the hard conversations, those that may push you to say, ‘oh she’s lost it!’. Share what resonates with you and comment on how you feel about it, so we can create a dialogue. Come with me as I embark on this journey of Redefining the American Girl.
