A few years ago, I was venting about the lack of consideration some people have towards equal opportunities for girls.
The conversation blew me away, and I thought, well, my God are we back in the early 1800s?
I had a chip on my shoulder for most of my life, and anger fueled me. I saw my brother get the red carpet rolled out for him, and I sat and watched from sports to college to apartments and cars being paid for.
I could have let that break me, but I didn’t.
My first experience at college was a bust because I couldn’t afford books. Therefore my grades were not giving what they needed to give. So I saved up my military funds, gave another stab at it, and earned a degree in Marketing and Advertising. ALL ON MY OWN!
And It felt good to do this on my own. I lit my on fire and marched ahead. My fire is still lit and provides the light my daughters need in order to achieve their goals.
Beginning in 1837, college doors opened for women, so why would we participate in holding women back in the 20th and 21st centuries. We are capable of being so much more than stay-at-home moms or constantly living in their husband’s shadows!
Strong Like a Woman
We are strong, and we are capable of being WHATEVER we want to be. No one has the power to hold us back from achieving our dreams, and my daughter is a perfect example of just that.
Setting fires isn’t always bad
Burn the house down that tried to steal your goals
Fear has no home in her soul
No doesn’t exist in her brain
ill-equipped isn’t a word that she recognizes
Too hard for your female brain is a joke that lacks humor
Rooting for other women is her norm
A weak man couldn’t handle her
Her brain is unmatched
When her phone rings she answers… especially if it’s NASA
10-week paid Internship with NASA… my heart is PROUD!
