Most of my adult life I’ve been called a “Bulldog” in some way, shape, or form. Or, related synonyms such as “Intense, Aggressive, Strong or Not Afraid of Conflict.” Recently two of my closest friends referred to me as this - a Bulldog. This comment I know came from only a place of love. And in the moment, it made me proud. “Like, fuck ya! I AM a bulldog. I don’t let people push me or those I care about around.” When I woke up the next morning and thought about it, I started to feel differently. As I was chatting with my best friend, she brought up a good point. If I was a man, those things that make me a so called “Bulldog” would be thought of as “Business Savvy” -or - “A Strong Leader” - or - “Competent” Those would all be looked at as positive things. But in my case, it’s often not. Because I’m a woman. And not only a woman, I’m a tiny woman. 5’1 on a good day. As this tiny women, I’m supposed to be Smiley, Agreeable, Dosile, Passive and Never Question Anything. This is what we’ve ALL been taught. And what people forget - even my friends - is I have to be this way. Not because I necessarily want to, but because I have to be able to stand up to anyone. Not just for myself, but for my team and all the women who come after me and feel like they don’t have a voice. Those who are fearful that if they are forthright, it will come back to bite them in the ass. As this world continues to grow and we as a society with it, I hope that we can all take a step back and not only acknowledge but be grateful for the women who have stood for something. The women that have pushed us forward and will continue to do so. I can confidently say that I’m proud to a powerful human. xox, Mandy

I’ve spent a decent amount of time in New York over the years. Mostly like this, riding around with friends with a bike strapped to my back. When I think of New York I envision a scene just like this - a street lined with trees and brown stones. I can still remember that day 20 years ago. I was a junior in high school and all we did all day in school was watch the news. I remember a few of my classmates had family on the flights and them being pulled out of class that morning. I still think of them often and everyone that was directly affected by this tragedy. From myself and everyone at WB - we feel you. xox, Mandy

Feeling Seen Recently an Indigenous woman came into the bakery and approached me. “This is your shop! I can’t tell you what it means to me to see you and finally have some representation as an Indigenous person in the baking world.” I was taken aback by this. I’ve been approached by people from time to time thanking me for what I do, and being so generous with their kind words... but this was different. I was struck so deeply by that simple sentence that I was almost speechless and didn’t have any words other than to say “Thank you so much.” Luckily this woman was still in the middle of ordering so it gave me a few moments to process and gather my thoughts - I went back up to her and thanked her again and told her how much what she said meant to me. As we continued to talk I realized for the first time I felt truly seen by a person for what I do and who I am. She continued “I’m so sick of everyone relating only Fry Bread to us. We’re so much more than that. Food is in us. These ingredients are part of us and our culture,” I could of cried. This woman really felt why I do this, she understood that I do this because I’m rooted in food. What I make at Wholesome Bakery is so much deeper than I publicly talk about. Mainly because I wasn’t sure people would care or get it. At 11 years old I still remember when this “obsession” with practicing healthy relationships with land, plants and animals manifested. But that’s just it - It’s not an obsession, it’s me. The deep roots that live in me and why food is so precious is something that I can’t control. This intrinsic connection to food is who I am. What I make is not a trend - It’s my ancestors coming through me, allowing me to bring people together, while pushing me to create real food from the earth with real ingredients. For everyone who sees me, thank you so much. I can’t express what it means. xox, Mandy
