When Tonya Rapley had her son, she had to recalibrate the way she thought about herself. She wasn't just the founder of My Fab Finance anymore — now she was also a mother. "There was a moment where I felt like I was grieving my old self after I had him," she says. Her journey to find self-acceptance and understand her new normal as a working mom also led Tonya to create the Maternal Health & Education Project, which provides birth care funding for women who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford it.
