Happy International Women’s Day to all the strong, wonderful, empowering women I am so lucky to know! You each make a difference in the lives around you, the community you live in, and the world as we know it- and I am damn proud.
I have talked so often about the importance of women building each other up rather than tearing each other down, empowering one another, and building networks of support for one another. It is something that I am truly passionate about and I am grateful that I surround myself with like-minded women who share these goals.
I wouldn’t be the woman I am today if I wasn’t surrounded by strong, independent women *insert Destiny’s Child here* that instilled ideals of equality, togetherness, goal-chasing, and understanding. As a child, no dream was unattainable and my gender didn’t define my limits. As an adult, I push myself every day to be a woman that will inspire my future daughter. So, thank you, to the women who have been instrumental in my life, the women who I can call on for support, and the women who continue to inspire me everyday.
