We had the good fortune of connecting with Cala The Unicorn and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Cala, let’s start by talking about what inspires you?
It’s funny how when things fall apart we never take the time to look at the pieces. No, not the remaining pieces but the pieces that hit the ground. We never try to find the beauty in destruction or chaos. We’re always looking for bright, shiny, flawless, WHOLE things. But what about the tattered and jagged ones? I’m inspired by those things.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
We’re in such dire times right now however I am still working on two projects that are very important to me. Unicornfairylovechild podcast to unite spirituality, religion, mental health and radiating positive energy. For a very long time I didn’t understand the separatist view point many people have about spirituality and religion. I wanted to give people a better way of connecting the dots. Mental health has always been a passion of mine and I wanted to break down society’s barriers of what “normal” is. Wildflower Home for Girls has been a dream of mine for nearly 7 years and it is finally actively coming into fruition. The mission of WFHG is to ensure a safe and nurturing environment for adolescent girls by providing a group home experience, building life skills and helping young people and their families find solutions to the difficulties they face. Chief among these difficulties is the loss of parental control, truancy, pregnancy, rebellion, and running away. Our vision is that the youth of Dallas county will have safe housing, supportive relationships, and the opportunity for self-sufficiency and success. In the future, I hope to be able to expand to more cities plagued by teenage homelessness. I am currently working to obtain 501(c)3 status and I am hoping to obtain a safe space soon. With everything in life, there will be roadblocks but I jump over those by staying focused and above all else: believing in my vision. I’ve learned that there’s so much I want to give the world but I have to work on it in small pieces for it to all come together.

Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
The funny thing is: I’m more of a homebody when I’m in Dallas. One of the downfalls of being an empath, I have to be so protective of my energy because it’s almost plaguing to go out in a city this large without feeling drained. If I HAD to come up with a plan: Brunch at Dream Cafe – the waffles are AMAZING Take a walk through Klyde Warren Park – meditate or nap on the grass Lunch at Serious Pizza in Deep Ellum Video games at Cidercade Go see a movie at Cinepolis Grab some popsicles from Popbar Go sit on top of the car and ogle at the Dallas city lights

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I dedicate my shoutout to my husband, my children and all the Wildflowers® of the world still struggling to find their place.
