Since Stephanie Newman was a kid, St. Augustine has been her favorite place, and the day she graduated high school, she made it her home. Falling in love with the city and the people is how her story begins. But there’s so much more to this beauty guru. She’s now the founder of Girl Gang, a group that works to inspire the women of St. Augustine.
Hustle: Founder of Girl Gang/ Manager of Push Push Salon
Talent: Brow Expert, Makeup Artist
Life Goal: Be the best form of myself possible and help women see their full potential
What is the Girl Gang?
The Saint Augustine Girl Gang is an empowerment group for women. We strive to help women become their greater self with empowerment and meetings.
What does the Girl Gang do?
We host bi-monthly events called Girl Gang Swap Meet with local artists, photographers, jewelry makers, etc. Girls can host a table and learn to sell their products and make money! Everyone and anyone can attend the swap meets to shop. We also create safe places for women to feel comfortable and talk. We strive to let women know that no bad situation has to be permanent. We can help.
What encouraged you to start the Girl Gang?
As someone who has been through some scary and dark times, I never want another female to feel alone or unwanted during their darkest times. There are people out there who love you and will do what it takes to help you reach your highest potential, who will make you feel safe and stay safe!
Who is the Girl Gang for?
Anyone! Any age! If you want a strong gal pal group, we got you. We welcome all, just join our social media pages and stay in the loop. We post about dates of swap meets and meetings!
Does the Girl Gang have any recent goals?
During the next Girl Gang Swap Meet, we plan on raising money for the Bahamas. So many women and children need shelter, food, and clothing.
