The Maria Complex Presents: Incredible Women

One of the many reasons I started my platform was to help motivate and inspire others. In honor of Women’s History Month, I wanted to feature some amazing & impactful Women in my life. These women have helped inspire me and countless others in many ways, with their success, their art, & endless words of encouragement. There’s something so magical about women supporting women, an energy that comes from it that makes you feel supported. It truly does take a tribe, and here’s an introduction to some of my incredible tribe.

During a tour of an art exhibit a couple years ago, I met the charming @fvdgenaste97. Her passionate energy felt as she explained her work, there was an instant bond and my admiration for her has grown ever since. She was not only someone I admired but also became a friend, and a source of calm energy especially during such uncertain times. Watching her put so much effort and love into her business has been so inspiring. In her own words, here’s a little bit more of her story; make sure you check her out!!!

“My name is FVDGE NASTE 97 I am an Artist & Holistic Leader/Healer. I started doing healing work in the beginning of COVID because like most people at the time I felt called to step into my purpose. I was very resistant but the thug life chose me. Only real Spiritual Gangstas know that feeling where you’ve been a healer alllll your life but finally chose to claim that, step out of the closet and be seen !

My mission with my life is to heal myself, my previous generations, and usher healing into my community. I do this through my brand @ghettoheavenyc . Ghetto Heaven is a holistic lifestyle brand that serves black, brown and spiritually aligned people in healing their Soul, Mind, and Body. Making healing a fly ass lifestyle and revolutionizing the look of a herbalist, therapist or yoga instructor into your everyday person because we are creators and healers and all have medicine to share ! I’m currently working on Hood Yoga classes for the summer and healing experiences that is really going to uplift our vibrations in these times !”
