My best friend is my hero, she is a single mom raising her son on her own, she is successful in her career and she is going to school all at the same time, I call her wonder woman, I don't know how she makes time to do it all.
Both of my grandmothers are the strongest women I've ever known. Jane Goodall is my biggest role model because of her compassion, courage, optimism and commitment to animal welfare.
My mother has inspired me because she has raised five children. I see how hard raising 1 alone is so I don't know how she did it!
I have been most inspired by my mom
My mother is my hero. She has fought through so many battles in her lifetime I appreciate her story and her strength through it all. It has helped me create my path now and continue to strive for what I love and am passionate about. I also feel oprah kinda falls into this category only simply because of the empowerment she gives us women everyday. She defines how women have come such a long way to finally be able to speak up or take on roles that we unheard of many years before us.
My grandmother. She helped to make me the person I am today.
My cousin Marie
Oprah is my hero because she came from nothing and is now one of the richest ladies in the world! i aspire to be like her!
My grandma, she inspires me with her kindness, hospitality, gentleness, and beauty.
My great great Aunt Lyla is my hero. She passed away when she was 98 and was not ready to go. Her body was worn out but her spirit wanted to stay with us.She had a career which I don't think was too common at that time. She taught me to be kind and considerate. She taught me to be a bit frugal because she lived through depression. She rarely threw things away because they had so little then, she would always find another use for it (she kind of did recycling before the term recycling was really used). She cared so much for other people. She had her own car when she was 20 and drove cross country to California. She was always so proud of my accomplishments. I miss her a lot but have so many incredible memories and know she is still watching out for me.
Joi Gordon Dress for Success World Wide taught me about great women helping other women and creating truly caring support/friendships. (also my grandma, great aunt and great grandmother)
My mom is my hero. Raised me as a single parent. Kept us fed, kept a roof over our heads and clothes on our backs. She taught me the true meaning of working hard to take care of your family.
My friend Cyndee. She started her own business about 11 years ago making bows so that her family Had some type of income, and then she progressed to painting as another outlet to make money for her family. All while in the last year getting fit and healthy and being a great example to her lovely girls. She even started a fitness group for women to be supportive of everybody's journey all while still running her 2 businesses, and taking care of her husband and daughters. She's amazing!!! Honestly she's the best!
My mom has always been my hero!
