Today we feature findSisterhood, an app by women, for women that offers a "safe place to ask anonymous questions you have always wanted to ask other women without having to reveal your identity". findSisterhood was launched by Ana Pompa Alarcon Rawls, and as you'll read it was her mixed background that helped inspire her business.
MiXD Life: You’re in the business of connecting people. Why do you think it’s important for mixed people and families to connect?
I think the most important factor for myself is finding things we have on common. Whether it's the same language, being moms, political views, or being immigrants. I find that as soon as there is this thing we can connect over the first barrier is gone and we can connect on a deeper level. Finding other people who are mixed provides an instant connection!
MiXD Life: Before you go, tell us one fun fact about yourself!
Ana: My company from women by women was actually started by me and my husband together. He was the very first "sister" from findSisterhood.
You can download the findSisterhood app from iTunes and follow them on Twitter for updates!
