"A6BB9B" by Lauren Cohen, completed in 2021 and self published in 2022
Full of existential inquiry, a female artist builds her future in New York City. She lands a job assisting Martha Stewart, one of the most successful businesswomen in the world. Growing up understanding what it means to be successful can be a tough concept to crack. By age 35, women are expected to be married with children and maintain a happy household. The packaged fantasy that exists on the glossed pages of Martha Stewart's, 'Living', is perhaps a farce. Authentically building one's own universe is the key. Despite every challenge, including a pandemic, she pushes forward. In one generous moment, her life could change forever.
