A Journey of Faith, Family, and Motherhood.
Big Ocean Women was founded by Brazilian native, Carolina Sagebin Allen. The majority of women of the world are women of faith, deeply connected to our familial and ancestral roots, who identify as mothers and nurturers. Carolina wanted to create a massive grassroots movement that represented so many global women’s perspectives, thus validating their experiences.
In Big Ocean, we believe that every woman is a wave in the great ocean of humanity, and together we have astounding impact for good in the world. Hear her views on the powerful impact that every woman can have as we seek to influence within our families, communities, and the world. Watch as she tells the story of the how Big Ocean Women came to be.
