Philippa Hughes on being uncomfortable and building your life around the things you can’t and won’t live without.
After quitting her job as a lawyer, Philippa turned over a new leaf in starting the Pinkline Project, hoping to catalyze the culturally curious to participate, innovate, engage, and conspire with passion, awesomeness, inspiration, generosity, and ingenuity. Living life to the limits and pushing herself to be uncomfortable, Philippa submerged herself in DC’s art scene and began organizing salons, panels, exhibits, and other art-related events.
Reflecting on her trajectory, she decided to scale Pinkline back and focus more on her own creative pursuits. Shortly after, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, her most uncomfortable experience, yet. Now on the other side of surgery, she speaks on the ephemeral nature of time and seizing the opportunity to focus your life on what really matters.
