Author, speaker, and teacher, Rosie Molinary, MFA, empowers women to embrace their authentic selves so they can live their passion and purpose and give their gifts to the world.
Rosie’s second book, Beautiful You: A Daily Guide to Radical Self Acceptance, was published in October 2010 by Seal Press. Hijas Americanas, her book on Latina body image in America, was published by Seal Press in June 2007. In addition to writing, she teaches body image at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, offers workshops and retreats for women, and speaks on self-acceptance, body image, media literacy, the Latina experience, and social justice around the country.
In her free time, Rosie paints, enjoys the outdoors, obsesses over NFL football, and works on social justice issues in her community. She 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. Rosie lives in North Carolina.
