There’s more to life than our twenties. Embracing aging is beautifully frightening as we face the pressures of societal expectations while learning to redefine what it means for ourselves.

In the Vogue May 2022 cover issue, Rihanna shares her personal journey with aging, timelines and redefining what maternity and motherhood means to her. The 34-year-old business mogul, is someone that many people, including myself look to as an inspiration.
