The California-born stylist further mentioned the “best part” of the hangout; celebrating Ever’s first birthday. She then wrote, “Here’s to our intertwined lives and these two sweet souls creating their own story forEVER,” before ending the caption with “happiest first birthday” to the celebrant.

She then pointed out that the program was inclusive, allowing women of all cultures and backgrounds to share their narratives, making her proud of their achievements.
