At SheSpeaks, we've been inspired by so many women, both those we know personally and those we've never met. Here are just a few of them:

My Mom

The woman who has positively influenced me is my mom, Ying Lo. She has taught me to never doubt my intuition and to go for what I love to do. She is the reason I am 100% my unapologetic self and strive to do more with my life. - Gaonou

J.K. Rowling

Aside from being an amazing author, J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter) faced a lot of rejection and persevered to see her vision come to life. She gives back generously, speaks her mind and holds true to her beliefs. - Stephanie

My Grandmother

She was an amazing woman who grew up in a time with gender role expectations, yet went on to receive her Master's and start various organizations, including women’s organizations. She was incredibly wise and always gave the best advice. - Melissa

My Mom's Group

When my oldest son was born, I met a group of amazing new moms. We started going out to dinner once a month and we haven't stopped for more than twelve years. These women have inspired me to be a better mom and a stronger person. They also taught me how important it is to support other women - and find women who support you. - Susan

Serena Williams

Serena Williams is more than just an incredible tennis player. She also uses her platform for good and has become a great role model for all, but especially girls, sisters and now moms. Her passion for excellence is inspring. I love her new Nike video that says it all.  - Carol

    My mom inspires me. Even more so now that I?m a mom myself. I see and realize how much she sacrificed for me and my brother while we were growing up, and she never mentioned it or asked for a thank you. Mothers go above and beyond and are the guilt guides on the side and cheerleaders for their children. My mom taught me that I?m never alone-she will always be behind me no matter what-whether she agrees with me or disagrees with me. My mom taught me to be myself and that I?m a treasure, and if someone doesn?t see that, leave them in the dust! 💁🏻‍♀️

    My friends, V and Meg, have showed me kindness when no one did. Barbara Jane Reyes is the only woman I've encountered (so far!) whose work I feel in my bones. She makes me feel like I'm not alone, not a mistake and am part of something. My mother for supporting me and exposing me to what's happening in the world.

    My closest friend. She inspires me because she has, and still is, growing stronger despite the obstacles in her path. She knows her limits and doesn't go beyond them.

    My mom is a big inspiration in my life as she was a single mom and raised my sister and I. She never got a college degree but worked her way up through her industry and is very successful. Another woman that inspires me is Michelle Obama. I'm reading her autobiography and it's really cool to see where she come from and her success.

    My mom has inspired me to be strong and independent Oprah has inspired me to keep going even when you feel like success has been achieved... there?s always more to be done Mimi G Styles has inspired me to go for my passion for designing clothes and to understand that 1 dream can be manifested in many ways My aunt has inspired me to always make family number 1 because they are most important

    The 2 most inspirational women in my life are my childhood best friend and one of my high school best friends​, both are NOW mothers of children, One gave birth to a stillborn child which I can only imagine is not easy and the other wasn't able to have full term pregnancies without being on best rest. One had a tougher time than the other and I honestly feel inspired to be able to bounce back like they have some day show that women struggle very hard if not harder some times, but NEVER give up when they have a set goal.

    My mom and grandma have been my biggest inspirations. They have been amazing role models, always there for me, and definitely helped shape the person I?ve become.

    My sorority sisters, whom I still see regularly, after 27 years, inspire me. Each of us have had different challenges throughout our lives and we are cheerleaders for each other.
