WOMEN FOR ONE about us

We began with an idea. Story by story, we’ve grown into a community of inspiration and truth, and with every woman who’s shared, others have emerged changed, empowered, and inspired.

That’s what makes us the happiest – knowing that your stories create change. Women For One is here to support your NEXT, whatever that might be. We do not wait for permission to evolve. Instead, we reach out, lift others up, and make the world better through action and interaction.

Our mission? It’s simple. Women For One is a global community of women who share their truth and make life happen. We connect women so that they can share their stories and inspire action that will transform the way they live, love, and learn.

We are all pioneers of our own growth and experiences. It takes courage, love, and action to evolve throughout our lives. We want to hear from you about your journey and life lessons learned.

“Sharing your truth courageously with no shame is a lifelong journey. Dive into your life one story at a time.”

Welcome to my home at Women For One. I love women. They are my sisters, my friends, my mentors, my peers, my teachers. They are part of my soul. Women reflect pieces of me, a lesson from my past, a present moment or an experience to create in the future.

I founded Women For One in 2011 because of a powerful and encouraging inner voice. The message was a quiet whisper saying, “Women For One – global community.” Personally, I know I can trust that voice when such a call is whispered, almost just slightly suggested, with no force.

For the past four years, this movement has grown into a brave community sharing truth. I founded Women For One because through sharing, we find inspiration, community, and can create action that makes a brighter tomorrow. Once we are aware of our stories and how they define us, only then can we can release them to create a powerful vision for our lives.

Samantha Horvath

Managing Director

“Every story submitted resonates with heart and deep feeling.”

I am Samantha Horvath and I have been director of Women For One since 2014. I grew up in the Midwest and moved to Seattle in 2010. I graduated from the University of Washington in 2014 with a B.S. in biology. I am marrying my best friend this year and I have two amazing cats that help me keep it real.

I love the Northwest and feel like I have arrived home since I moved here. I never imagined being involved with an organization like Women For One, but since I joined the team, I discovered my passion is connecting others to find their true purpose. I am most proud to be involved in the Wf1 movement because every day we help women find the courage and power to dig deep inside and find their most authentic selves. In Women For One, I have found purpose, direction, and passion for life.

Administrative Director

“Women For One is a community filled with inspiring women and positivity. It is a safe place to just be YOU.”

I grew up in the Northwest, and I’m one of the few who don’t mind those rainy, dreary days that make Seattle notorious. They just make me love the sun all that much more! I am a true Seattleite with a love for coffee, books, and technology.

I have a background in advertising and project management, and spent seven years working in a local advertising agency. I also took a few years off to be mom to two crazy girls, who still keep me on my toes. We have two cats, Elsa and Anna; one dog named Rosie; and I have a husband who has amazing patience with all of us. I also give time as a Girl Scout leader, encouraging girls through lots of fun and crazy adventures.

I’m inspired by stories from Truthtellers I meet through Women For One. This community offers such an amazing opportunity to share part of myself, my truth, and my being with others. I’m excited to be part of the Women For One team.

International Liaison & Special Projects

“It has been great for me to be able to go to Women For One and see countless examples of women who inspire me and can serve as models for how I want to live my life.”

I live in Brooklyn, NY and am sophomore at Wesleyan University. I’m a New Yorker through and through, but my passion lies in travel. I find travel to be one of the best ways to grow and to learn about other cultures and about myself, and I enjoy meeting new people. This is why I’m extra excited about my position as Women For One international liaison. I have seen how beautiful it can be when women from around the world come together to support each other, teach each other, and learn from each other.

“I am proud to be a part of the Women For One team, and look forward to being a catalyst to empower women – and men – everywhere to speak and live their truths.”

I was born in St. Louis, and returned home recently after years of experiencing love, loss, and beauty. I’m a mother of three boys, who have challenged me and enriched my life in ways I could never have imagined. My background is in newspaper reporting and publishing, and I am also a freelance writer. I am an avid cyclist and have lots of beautiful friends, but sometimes too little time.

I am deeply concerned about the lives of people who don’t have the opportunities I have had. In 2009, I found myself searching for purpose. I found it in Ghana working to empower women and children with opportunities and being a voice against human trafficking there and worldwide. I realize now that I have the power and the resources to create change, and I’d like to help other women find their own purpose.
