How the "I Am Many" Campaign is for Every Mom

Allie shares her take on Rebecca Minkoff’s viral campaign.

Why are women, especially mothers, always getting pigeonholed into one category?

One label defines us, like stay-at-home mom, or working mom, but our other talents and capabilities are often overlooked.

I think society forgets - I think WE forget - how truly multifaceted we really are.

When I came across Rebecca Minkoff’s #IAMMANY campaign, I was instantly intrigued. Giving women the opportunity to celebrate the many facets of our identities is a wonderful gift that I felt compelled to enjoy and share.

I am a mother. I am a wife. I am a friend, a daughter, and an aunt. I am an animal lover. I am a researcher. I am a writer. I am a woman.

#IAMMANY pays tribute to all women, and especially those who inspire and uplift other women. As a mother, I see how important it is to share solidarity with fellow moms. We do A LOT with what little time we have in our days.

“I don’t know how you do it all” is a statement, or perhaps judgment, I get pretty frequently. I am a wife, a mom of one, I co-own and operate The Daughter Diaries blog, I work full-time as a research director, work out for 30 minutes every day, and try my best to spend time with friends and family.

But I realize that “I am many,” because I have many. By that, I mean I have many helping hands and supportive voices getting me through my hectic days.

My mom watches my baby girl while I’m in the office, and I put her in daycare the other days of the week. My husband helps watch her when I do my daily workout, and I get the majority of my blog work done after we put her to bed. And when I have a tight work deadline and can’t get to publish my blog articles, Lisa steps in and helps me out.

I am multi-talented and driven. I am organized, determined, and resourceful. I am many, but I would be none without those who help me along the way.
