As I reflect upon my life’s journey this Women’s History Month, I note several women who have influenced my career path. I am very blessed to have had a supportive mother, two grandmothers, and aunts who all prided themselves in working and caring for their families. They were active in the community and church as volunteers. I watched every single woman in my family hold a career and manage to take care of their household seamlessly.

Resiliency defines my life. Throughout the years, I have drawn inspiration from phenomenal women who have modeled this quality for me and countless others. While in college, I had the privilege of meeting the acclaimed poet, Maya Angelou, and hearing her speak about overcoming enormous obstacles to create a life of which she was proud. Ms. Angelou survived segregation, racism, sexual abuse, and her own insecurities to inspire others to be their best selves. She used her talents and grit to become a civil rights activist and an accomplished author, professor, poet, director, and composer. Her message was one of love, hope, and courage. Ms. Angelou showed me how every person can rise from tragedy and hardship to live a meaningful life.
