"I've always had a fascination with the concept of Alice in Wonderland. To me, the pursuit of an adventurous place where a person could discover the strength and potential of their imagination, self-worth, and independence sounded much more appealing than the American Dream" --- Athena Gomez-Hipolito (Co-Founder and Creative Director of Pioneers of Wonderland)
Pioneers of Wonderland (formally Girlish Writings) started off as a collective of dreamers in constant search of inspiration that reflected creativity, individuality, and escapism. Together, in 2009, we created a website featuring a variety of imaginative lifestyles, adventures, and works of art.
With cameras in our hands, music in our ears, and Walt Whitman's poetry on our minds, we set out on a journey to discover what/who could inspire people of all ages to believe in themselves and their dreams.
As crazy as it sounds, we truly believe your individualized and realistic Wonderland is out there, waiting to be found and navigated. You just have to develop the right mindset and willingness to explore what makes you come alive.
