Marisol Solarte-Erlacher
The Resilience and Resistance podcast is about successful Black, Indigenous and Women of Color who are overcoming trauma and becoming resilient.The vision for this podcast is to illuminate the dichotomy that many BIPOC female-identified individuals face in their daily lives; holding space for healing or managing past and present trauma, while maintaining a "professional" identity as they strive towards their work and other goals.Follow Us on IG @Resilience_and_ResistanceSupport this podcast on Patreon - https://www.patreon.com/posts/resilience-w-64601497Music: Inte-Gritty by Bianca MikahnArt: Maite Nazario | http://www.maitenazario.com

She has always had a love for style, fashion, and helping others find clothing that makes them feel strong and powerful. She has had the opportunity to work as a personal shopper and wardrobe stylist on the sets of tv shows and commercial photoshoots.    After the uprisings due to racial injustice, and as a Black woman with a deep understanding of oppression racial trauma, she began to ask herself the following:  What is most important? What matters most? How does fashion and style intersect with my thoughts? It was from these questions that Resistance Fashion was born. Her desire was to create a brand that celebrated style, fashion, black culture and resilience. Rosie wants people who wear her clothing brand to feel more powerful and celebrated than they have before. With bold statements and colors, her brand is an expression of resisting against the idea that our lives don’t matter.
