Thank you and see you next year 👋🏽

Hey Glow Gang!

This is it. The final Glowreel newsletter for 2022. We’re taking a break for a few weeks, and will be back to lighting up your inbox in mid-January 2023. We’re also excited to share some new, exciting things with you in the new year!

Thank you for being part of our community this year. Your support means the world to me and has kept Glowreel (and our mission to elevate BIPOC women) going 💜

This week we’re taking a bit of a trip down memory lane in the newsletter - enjoy!

I hope you have some time to rest and reset over the holiday period. See you in 2023.

Let's get glowing


P.S. If you’re a woman of colour founder, creative or community leader and want to be featured in Glowreel in 2023, reply to this email and come say hi 👋🏽

-Salma Hayek
