Each month we feature a new super heroine to highlight the diversity and interests of our amazing group! This month, we’re doing something a little different by featuring all of our current board members. Look for us at events and feel free to reach out when you have a question or concern!
Why I Joined SHE: I’m from St. Louis originally, but was looking for fun stuff around town to do and stumbled across Super Heroines, Etc. I can remember my very first event was a book swap!
What you would say to someone thinking about joining: Definitely do it! It is a wonderful place to explore, meet like-minded women (and people!), and learn to make good changes in our own nerdy spaces.
Favorite event: I love the panels we do, but one of the events I’m most excited for is the Taboo Cafe that will be making its first appearance next year!
Random Fact about you: I once got a hug from Nathan Fillion.

Why I Joined SHE: After a rough personal year in 2013 which included a divorce and relocation to St. Louis, MO I decided to try an activity independent of any romantic relationship or prior friendships. I wanted to meet like minded people and expand my social circle. My first event was a SHE BBQ where I met Carolyn, Fox, and a handful of amazing people I’m still friends with. I enjoy being around intelligent people with similar interests. Joining the Super Heroines, Etc. created a safe environment for me to explore new activities while giving me the space to connect with others. I still had to be brave and reach out to new people but the group setting really helped make that process a lot easier. I’m so glad I took a chance on this group!
What you would say to someone thinking about joining: Be brave and take a chance but remember you must do your part to form relationships with others too. Ask questions when you have them and be willing to try new things!
Favorite event: Drinks and Curious which happened in April of 2016. It was really hard work but seeing the project come to life really made it worthwhile. I also really loved talking at Cincinnati Comic Con in September 2016. The crowd asked fantastic questions!
