Maura Sheedy. Founder and Executive Director.


Makeup or no makeup, Maura always strives to be her real, authentic self. She spent a year without wearing makeup in high school and has since channeled her project into changing all societal standards- beauty, business, leadership, and more through platform Make Muse.

Currently studying Business Management at Fordham's Gabelli School of Business with a minor in Digital Tech and Emerging Media, she's an involved student, leader, writer, and entrepreneur. She heads outreach for #HalfTheStory and is committed to using media in a positive way. She proudly calls New York City her new home and loves spending her days exploring the city and meeting new people. All of her free time is devoted to advancing Make Muse, as it is her passion. 

Her current faves: Museum Gift Shops, Wide-Leg Pants, and Collages.
