Grace-Rose is a 20-year-old NYU student - film maker, advocate, entrepreneur and philanthropist. As Executive Director of the Grace-Rose Foundation and Creative Director of Rosie G, her former fashion brand, she raises money and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis and Mental Health initiatives. She is currently working on an App as well as a film that shares stories in this genre.
Born with CF, a life-threatening condition that attacks the respiratory, digestive system, internal organs and sinuses, Grace-Rose requires daily hour-long medical treatments, several daily medications and frequent hospital visits. There is currently no cure.
In the past, Grace-Rose used Fashion Show Fundraisers, Pop-Up Shops and Collaborations to support the cause. Her collections were featured in Nordstrom, Bloomingdales and various boutiques around the country where she hosted in-store events in order to speak and spread awareness for CF. She has raised over $500,000 through her own events and also helps raise money through advocacy and public speaking. She works closely with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as well as Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Grace-Rose is currently using funds from her Foundation to create an app and wellness community for teens and young adults struggling with anxiety and depression. Her idea combines meditation, therapy, music and visuals. These techniques combined have proven to be extremely helpful to her, she wants to be able to share it all in one place.
Her ultimate goal is to help #cureCF with the use of her creative outlets and entrepreneurial spirit!
