Everyone loves to party, but it’s even better when you have a cause to party for! Making our art show, TRANSFORMATION one pretty epic event! Attending the Rewrite Beautiful art show translates to creatively changing how girls see beauty in themselves for eating disorder prevention through education. Rewrite Beautiful has three main programs:

School Program – Rewrite Beautiful travels to junior high, high school and college campuses educating students on eating disorders; we erase myths and taboos and teach students the harms of eating disorders, the warning signs, how to talk to a friend struggling and where to get help. We share our photo-documentary telling the stories of 5 women who have struggled with an eating disorders, share a live eating disorder testimony, hold a Q&A Panel and engage the students in creatively changing how they see beauty in themselves. The program is greatly effective. After our school program:

* 90% of students say they know more about eating disorders than they did prior to the program

* 90% say they feel more equipped to talk to a friend struggling with an eating disorder than they did before the program

* 85% can name one place to receive free help and support

* 75% say they see their beauty now in their actions rather than their physical appearance

Beautiful Action Clubs - These are clubs that are led by high school and college students. These students help us to continue spreading eating disorder prevention on their campus. Through utilizing our book, How To: Rewrite Beautiful and holding fundraisers they do a heck of a job preventing this disease from harming students on their campuses.

Street Art Workshop- This workshop is held annually for Rewrite Beautiful supporters and the public to learn Rewrite Beautiful’s vision, hear an eating disorder testimony, view our photo documentary and create street art which allows them to change how they see beauty in themselves.

Be a part of the revolution that is changing how girls see beauty! Get your pre-sale tickets for our art show, TRANSFORMATION on Saturday, November 30th– HERE!

All of the artwork that will be featured at Rewrite Beautiful’s 3rd Annual Art Show – TRANFORMATION has been created with love by local Orange County and Los Angeles, female artists. Get to know these creative, kind and strong women here...

Jeannette Encinias

Jeannette is a phenomenal artist and poet, but around here we love to call her, “The most radtastic editor and coach on the planet!” She served as the editor of our newly released book, How To: Rewrite Beautiful. Jeannette is passionate about people living their best lives and helping them tell their unique stories. Whether it’s through art, editing, conversations or a letter in the mail she is always reminding people to “Keep on Truckin’!” Get a sneak peek of some of Jeannette’s art work that is featured HERE in our shop.

Jessica Burkhart

Jessica has been drawing, painting and creating since she was a child. Her work can be seen all over Orange County. Some of our personal favorites are her commissioned pieces at Lola Gaspar and the Women’s Health Center. In addition to being a phenomenal oil painter, Jessica is known to be the Hostess with the Mostest! She can cook, entertain and tell you a funny story while she stands on one leg sautéing heirloom tomatoes! She’s so fabulous she actually ended up in our book in the essay, How To: Party! Jessica makes friends easily and serves as a constant source of joy and support to her friends. Just toast a glass of wine with her at the show and you’ll see why!

Jordan Tyson

We knew we totally digged Jordan’s art when we first saw it, but then we met her, and our feelings bounced straight into la la love! Jordan cares deeply about the way women see themselves and how the world at large interacts with them. Her work is powerful at every angle!

Katie Ziglar

Katie is a savvy business woman by day and a thoughtful artist by night. Katie's art conveys immense spirit and talent, but having a conversation with Katie is the real treasure about her. Just talk to her for 5 minutes and you'll learn a thing or two about North Korea, bullying, compassion and dating in Orange County. Katie leaves everyone a little more educated, thoughtful and giggly. She reminds us to love deeper and laugh harder.

Morgan Goldstein

Morgan is the “Queen of Quirk.” If she’s not planning the latest sorority fundraiser, she’s baking Morgan’s Maginificent Morsels, studying to Mozart, navigating Rewrite Beautiful as a member of our board of directors, creating art with her grandma or playing “Guess the bill” at dinner. Morgan is all intellect, wit and laughter – talk to her for a few minutes at the show and you’ll see why this is only a snapshot of what makes Morgan a beautiful woman.

Nicole Miyuki Santo

Nicole is a graduate of Chapman University and has carried some serious go-getter-panther into her professional career! Nicole started her creative career at ever/after clothing - a cause based brand that gives 25% of their profits to charity. Nicole then went on to found, Grounded on the Daily, an Etsy store with adorable gifts! Now she is using her creativity serving as a consultant for special events in the mecca of creativity, La La Land itself -Los Angeles. On the side she donates her time designing new t-shirts for Rewrite Beautiful. Amazing what can happen when a girl knows that her beauty lies in her actions, eh?

Beautiful Girl of the Week is a series of Beautiful Girls who are stand outs for what they contribute to the world through their beautiful actions!  We feature the Beautiful Girl of the Week on the Rewrite Beautiful blog as an attempt to inspire other girls and women to use their own gifts and talents to impact their communities. Our hope is that bringing positive attention to women’s actions will inspire them to embrace their own creative calling!

I first heard of Jessica Starr when I was sent a clip of her powerful piece of choreography, Look At Me depicting the life of someone with an eating disorder and the spoken word of someone looking in. I wanted to know more about this creative, inspiring woman. I met her and she was even more of a powerhouse than I expected. She is not only creating conversations about eating disorders through dance, she is completely over hauling the Hollywood dance world. Find out how in our interview...

Irvina: When and how did you realize that dancing was a passion for you?

Jessica: I first realized I was meant to dance when I literally found myself unable to hold still at that faintest sound of music.  Ever since I can remember I would be moving non stop, in the grocery store around a bunch of strangers, or in my room alone, it did not matter.

Irvina: Currently who are your favorite artists? 

Jessica: Currently I am inspired by the intention of Macklemore.  What he does with lyrics is similar to what my dance company, MusEffect does with choreography.  He looks at the greater picture of the world and knowing the power and influence he has in the industry, uses his music to educate.  I admire him for taking a chance on being different and standing for a cause.  I would love to collaborate with him one day.

Irvina: What inspired you to start Muse Dance Company in Los Angeles?

Jessica: I felt there was a lack of choreographic work with intention in the LA dance community. Our goal is to leave our viewers feeling empowered and enlightened after they see our show.  We want to give them something to take away for a lifetime.

Irvina: What kind of dancers do you look for to represent MusEffect?

Jessica: When choosing dancers I look for dancers who are committed to their craft and put the audiences first and foremost above everything else. I look for dancers who are eager to make a difference with their art and aren’t afraid to stir up a little controversy every once in awhile. As a whole we are ALL a little quirky, off beat and not too concerned with fitting in.

Irvina: What is Look At Me? How did the idea for it come about?

Jessica: Look at Me is a collaborative effort between spoken word artist, Azure Antoinette and myself.  At one point in my life a woman I loved very much, had an eating disorder. At that point nothing I could say or do was helping her to come to terms with her condition.  It was at this point that I had the realization, if I did not have the words to heal the situation I would simply create dance on it. This is exactly what I did.  I contacted Azure and we immediately had a cosmic connection.  She put together this tremendous piece of poetry based off of my own personal observations, feelings and along with her own, birthed this incredibly poignant piece called, Look at Me. You can check it out HERE:

Irvina: What has the response from Look At Me been from viewers?

Jessica: The first time we performed this piece at the University of Arizona the response was incredible.  During the piece you could hear a pin drop.  Afterwards we had numerous young dancers, parents and complete strangers approaching us eager to share their own experiences with eating disorders. It was like our piece opened the flood gates for confessions of each individual’s connection with the topic. The same things appeared on our YouTube link. I truly feel blessed to be able to assist in so many individuals path towards healing.  Speaking about your eating disorder is the first step towards recovery and I am grateful that the Azure, the dancers of MusEffect and me have been able to connect so intimately with so many strangers through Look at Me and assist in their recovery thru our art.

Have you ever considered using your creative talents to help fix a problem?

Melanie  is our uber fabulous and professional Public Relations intern this summer! She has been helping us with social media, press and planning our upcoming Street Art Workshop with Element Eden’s, Brooke Kelley. Melanie attends Chapman University in Orange, CA, but has lived all over the world! Which might explain her laid back, yet sophisticated demeanor – this girl is a total gem! Learn a little more about what makes Melanie beautiful through our interview below. 

Irvina: Where did you grow up?

Melanie: I lived in Switzerland until I was nine. I then move to France and began moving to various countries. My high school years where most of my growth happened, was in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Irvina: Well, you're a totally cultured gal! I have loved our conversations and your perspective! What kind of career will you be pursuing after you graduate from Chapman University?

Melanie: I am not 100% sure what is to come, but I know that I want to help others as much as possible. I would like to get a Master’s degree in Psychology so I can become a counselor. Hopefully one day I can become a therapist and allow people the opportunity to vent and understand their lives. Hopefully, one day I might have a nonprofit of my own. I also thought about opening a restaurant!

Irvina: I think you would be amazing at all of those! You have my support and Facebook "LIKE"!  Why did you pursue an internship at Rewrite Beautiful?

Melanie:  I am passionate about giving back to the community. I love helping people realize that their lives are beautiful and worth living every moment of. I also wanted to gain some knowledge and experience in the non-profit world.

Irvina: Well, you have definitely helped us accomplish the day to day tasks of running Rewrite Beautiful! Thank you Melanie! Tell us who inspires you? Who is your hero?

Melanie: I have two women heroes! One of them is my dear mother who has endured much in her life but has come so far. She inspires me every day by being the woman she is with a kind and giving heart. The other, is my aunt (my mom’s sister) who recently lost her husband. I have never seen so much strength and hope, which also gives me inspiration to be strong enough to take on difficult situations with hope. I think the combination of both women gives me a very secure idea of what a beautiful woman is.
