Gena Palmieri

How did this all start?

As a 17 year old ready to take on the world, Gena decided to create The Beauty Pack in 2014. She always possessed a love for fashion and beauty, but wanted to use her passion for them in not so typical way. With an age of women empowerment on the horizon, she wanted to take part in the movement. In order to do so, she composed a bag of necessities for women in shelters to keep them healthy and happy.

"Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value. "

Tell me a love, a passion, and a goal.

Call it a love or call it an obsession, pineapple is my favorite food on the planet. It reminds me of the warm summer days spent in the sun and basically brings me pure happiness.

I am very passionate about being outdoors. Everyday I make sure to spend time out in nature, whether it be while running or simply reading a book. It's a calming feeling to hear the waves on the beach, the wind within the trees, and the sweet birds chirp away. 

There are many goals in my life I would love to accomplish, but the most outlandish/dreamlike one would have to be to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. I remember doing a report on it in the third grade and ever since I have had a lust to do so.
