THE RESILIENT CHICK is about honoring the most resilient little muscle in our bodies—our hearts! This blog is for the chicks out there trying to find their place in the world. To the ones who are cool, calm and collected, this is for you…and to the ones telling themselves they should be more cool, calm and collected (but aren’t), this is for you too! Me, I am the latter.


I’M CARMEN and, like Amélie Poulain, I’ve cultivated a taste for small pleasures; I like the replay button, books, and forehead kisses.

I’m a San Francisco Bay Area based writer, where I’m currently pursuing a degree in Communication Studies and Creative Writing. I’m a proud self-proclaimed feminist, an intrepid globetrotter, and a fiction editor for Reed Magazine.
