She is free in her wildness, she is a wanderess, a drop of free water. she knows nothing of borders and cares nothing for rules or customs. 'time' for her isn't something to fight against. her life flows clean, with passion, like a river
Founding of The Xó Social Collective
Xó comes from the legend of the Aztec Warrior Queen, Xóchitl, one of the original intended names of the founder. Legend has it that Xóchitl was a consort to the then King and married him after his first wife died. She birthed him a son, but shortly after the Spainards began to take over. In order to protect her son and the people of Tenochtitlan, Xó gathered a tribe of women and they went into battle as an all-female battalion. She died in battle but her ferocity and passion to protect her family and utilize her fellow females made her a legend.
The Xó Social is a passion project of Anastacia Barbosa, who had developed a passion for writing through blogging and writing for her junior college newspaper. Upon realizing the unique individuals in her life who had shared passions, she invited them to participate in sharing their passions with the world.
