About You Are Collective: Founded in 2019 You Are Collective started as a passion project called, 13 You Are created by Co-Founder Cherelle Posadas. Inspiration drew from the Netflix Show “13 Reasons Why” storyline which sparked a challenge in Cherelle to use her newfound hand lettering skills to create beautiful cards that inspired hope. She started to give these cards that reflected “13 reasons why they mattered” to her friends, family, and strangers. In 2019, Cherelle wanted to be more bold with her projects. She reached out to close friends and family casting the same vision of 13 Your Are, but with more impact.

This grand vision would give YOU ARE a broader reach in our community and bring a creative outlook to mental health awareness and connecting people around the world. As the vision manifested into plans, she revisited a partnership to create a passion project with Syzette Gountang, our other Co-Founder, an original 13 You Are supporter, a leader and good friend.

Syzette was in the middle of bringing her vision to life for women empowerment and leadership creation conference, and felt the partnership would align perfectly with her vision. Syzette believes that building a community that can support and uplift each other is crucial to establishing good health, environment and relationship which can help stem a leadership mindset. With God’s blessing, what once was a one person project, became a team of four; where we rebranded 13 You Are to You Are Collective. For more please visit our website at
