Women of Inspiration

Women of Inspiration for me is someone who really has a story and is not afraid to share it. I’m inspired by their stories and I think that when we are able to find a voice and put that story out there, it really is something that can resonate with a lot of other people and really inspire them.

Women of Inspiration to me is someone who is not afraid to be who they are, and to be able to go out and show that to people, and also just stand up for what they believe in and what’s important to them.

Being among so many inspiring women at the Women of Inspiration Nominee Celebration Luncheon was incredibly energizing.
