Focused the role of emotion in life and work, these women paradoxically reveal a considerable strength as they opening up about their complex emotional lives – in some cases for the first time ever. Roanne Adams, Founder and Creative Director of RoAndCo Studio & Romance Journal explains, it's been amazing to see the first issue of romance journal come to life and evolve as Iove evolved. Connecting with each woman we interviewed has been cathartic and has helped me better understand the human condition. This transformation allowed me to connect with the inner voice that comes from my heart, the one that's connected to something greater than just myself.
