How did the Chic start?
Hi, I’m Nancy Rahman, the editor at the Chic. I moved to Chicago as an immigrant from Dubai in 2011. I am Egyptian by culture and nationality. I started blogging due to scarce work opportunities and from there started the chic’s journey.
In 2013, I blogged about the post-financial crisis America where youth was disrupting, innovating and evolving. Artistry, entrepreneurship and self employment flourished.
Meanwhile, the social internet life soared and people around me started traveling and experiencing the world more, bringing back inspiration and creativity.
A Fresh Redirection
In 2015, I had children and my passion for the environment grew stronger and stronger. This is where I decided to use this platform and my voice to help our followers learn more about a sustainable life and empower them with simple yet beautiful tactics on how to integrate small changes in their daily lives – from self love to outward, environmental love. It is with absolute pleasure that I share these ideas, findings, people and products to enrich your life inside out.
I remain loyal to the main voice of this blog & website which is to share stories on American living- people, ideas and beyond.. all with a dash of responsibility and kindness.
