Get to know ouR women with garra
honoring Brazilian women
Thinking about the recognition of the work and life of the Brazilian immigrant woman who lives in New York, we created the Women With Garra award.
Our goal is to honor women who have gone through countless challenges and today serve as inspiration for our team and so many other women.
In 2019 the award honored Ingrid Silva, Ana Oliveira, Nathalia Narciso and Tatiana Ribeiro.
These stories, like so many others, deserve to be told!
What is Garra to you?
Emma Vitória, Illustrator
"For me, to have Garra is to have the capacity to bloom –– against all odds, and lifting up all of the women you meet along your way."
Cleusa Paula, Esthetician
"Garra is to have the courage to cross the ocean and start over in a new continent."
Inês Ferreira, Influencer
"Garra for me is to live life in a light way while knowing how hard it is the lack of opportunities, support, and representativity. Still, I continue to inspire others to dream!"
