A time set aside to recognize and honor the day to day lives and achievements of everyday and outstanding women.
I have always studied and worked hard. I learned this as a child that nothing is given and everything is earned. The struggles continue, I continue to press forward.
I have done this by asking questions and challenging the norms. Asking how and why things are a certain way and how can we be included.
My parents, my grandmother. My parents raised us to value education and always do our best. They taught us to love God and serve others. Serving and advocating for others and the Lord are my missions in life.
My hope is that the next generation will continue to challenge the norm, continue to work hard and break through more glass ceilings. Trust in God and themselves, the sky is the limit.
