About us


We are Magdalena and Para, the creators of the Grow Into Journal, a space where self-discovery and personal growth take center stage.

Our journey, much like the journal itself, is one born out of resilience, individuality, and a shared passion for self-improvement.

We both identify as queer and share the experience of being immigrants, bringing unique perspectives and stories to the table. Our backgrounds have taught us that self-growth is not just a desire, but a necessity. 

Journaling is a tool that we hold close to our hearts. It's been a guiding light in our respective journeys. But, like many, we know the struggle of maintaining consistency in journaling.That's why we've designed the Grow Into Journal – a tool that's dedicated to making you feel a little better and happier every time you engage with it, one thought-provoking prompt at a time.

Our mission is simple: we want to help you feel better, even if it's just a little, and ultimately, happier every time you use our journal. We invite you to explore the transformative power of journaling and embrace the beautiful journey of self-improvement. Thank you for joining us on this adventure. We are here to support and empower you, one journal entry at a time.

Why us?

1-1-1 Model 

From the very beginning we are committed to give 1% of our profits, 1% of our time back to the community and plant 1 tree for each journal sold. Social impact is integrated into the DNA of our company.

Our pledge:

  • We donate 1% of our profits to Los Angeles LGBT Center at the end of each fiscal year

  • We give 1% of our time back to the local community. We will volunteer a minimum of 40h per year with L.A Works, an organization that supports nonprofits addressing critical community issues

  • We plant 1 tree for each journal sold
