A Note From Katherine & Samantha

We promise that we tried to come up with a more catchy title for this, but we couldn’t think of anything.


Dear Tribe 21 Fam,

Let me introduce myself first. My name is Katherine Kriesky and I am a senior at Murray State University majoring in advertising and English. Typically, I am way too sassy for my own good, make terrible puns, and laugh at way too many jokes that are not funny. My friends call me the perfect mixture of Brooke Davis and Tami Taylor. However, I like to think of myself as the Jess of the world and Samantha is Cece. She is my right hand man (or woman in this case), my go to person, and the person whose phone I blow up 24/7 because I am having a minor freak out. There is also no one else I could imagine starting Tribe 21 with, but I digress.

When I came up with the idea of Tribe 21 almost six months ago, I never believed that we would have gotten the kind of feedback and support that we did. Now fast forward with me to almost a month ago when we launched all of our social media platforms. There are almost 2,000 of you guys now. I’m in awe. I’m shocked, confused, and most of all I’m happy. What I normally tell my team is “I’m not crying, you’re crying.” Samantha and I have a team of six wonderful and fabulous young ladies working underneath us; all who bring different aspects to this wonderful team. I am certain that I would not know what to do without them at this point.

Tribe 21 is a place for you to connect with people who are going through the same things you are. A place to get ideas and to get answers. A place to have someone who knows what you are going through, who might not live near you, but can help. Tribe 21 is so much more than just a website that has articles on how to survive high school, college, and the life after graduation. It’s a place where you can have an impact on people. And most of all, we want to have an impact on you.

Welcome to the tribe!

Love always,


Hello Tribe 21 fam-

Welcome! I want to be the first to welcome you to Tribe 21! I am SO excited that you are here & a part of this online community! I started Tribe 21 with Katherine—my Internet best friend turned real life best friend—as a place to inspire, encourage, educate, & just help girls navigate this crazy world we call life.

Tribe 21 is the female’s guide to work, school, relationships, & life in the 21st century. Aka we’re like Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide (anyone remember this show?! Or am I just old? Haha!) but online.

I hope you stay awhile & that our articles, tweets, & posts help you through whatever you’re going through. Whether it’s needing help with how to ace your big exam, tips for a first date, or just outfit inspiration, we’re here! I hope that we impact you just as you impact us. Lastly, I hope that you make friends on here & they turn into real life friends like me & Katie and the rest of the Tribe 21 team. There is nothing better than having a group of friends you can tell everything to; good or bad & big or small, they celebrate & and encourage you in it all.

If you ever want to get ahold of me for anything, my social media is linked on the About page or you can email me at sgoble1@yahoo.com. I am here for you 24/7, 365!

I am so excited for the future of Tribe 21 and the amazingness that is to come. I’m so glad I can share it with you!

So welcome to the Tribe!
