    A True Legend

    A True Legend

    As I was writing in my journal about people who inspire me from my list I came across a particular name, a name that was special, a name that was legendary, a name that I would in fact, NEVER FORGET! Her name was in fact Michelle Obama. Michelle Obama, well who is that and why does she inspire me? Well for starters Mrs. Obama was the first ever African American First Lady of the United States of America. I’ve never seen a First Lady that was in fact my complexion, MY COLOR, she was the same race as me. It was still in fact ironic and difficult to believe that the 44th First Lady was in fact black. I’ll never forget the day when I was writing in my journal was that was the day my whole life changed for the better. The date was January 1st 2013, The 44th president of the United States I was in fact 16 years ago cause my birthday is in April. I was a sophomore at the time and I didn’t really care for politics, I didn’t know much about the election, only that there was a black candidate from Hawaii running against a Mormom from Utah named Mitt Romney. I didn’t know much about Obama but I knew about his wife Michelle, she was a Trail Blazer indeed. Born in the south side of Chicago, attended Harvard University in the 70’s and became a lawyer later on. In contrast, as a teenage black girl going to a predominantly white school I didn’t feel comfortable at first I was one of the 10 black females in my school. I was told once by a student who was white that I didn’t belong here, they only allow black people in a school like this so the school won’t be known as racist, I told him he was wrong and then I walked away crying. I didn’t believe in what he was saying he was wrong. That day had been rough for me. I told my mom what happened and she said that she hated that people like the boy was in my school and biggots like him aren’t going to get far in life. She told me a quote from what Michelle Obama said at her husband’s inauguration, she said “ We all struggle with that, people of color, working class folks, women of color -- people try to define us in a negative way before we get a chance to get out there and tell our own stories." She was exactly right. I knew I belonged in that school, I worked hard to even get in and I was happy that I passed that test. I believe in Michele Obama she inspired me to be the best that I can be and never get up on what I believe me. She inspired to go to college and become the strong woman I am today. I wouldn’t even be in college if it wasn’t for her. She showed me and all women are across the world that we are strong and we are capable of doing anything a white person could and I knew that was true. I remember a couple of years later in 2014 Michelle As I was wrintng in my journal about people who inspire me from my list I came across a particular name, a name that was special, a name that was legendary, a name that I would in fact, NEVER FORGET! Her name was in fact Michelle Obama. Michelle Obama, well who is that and why does she inspire me?

I remember a couple of years later in 2014, Mrs. Obama launched the Reach Higher Initiative, an effort to inspire young people across America to take charge of their future by completing their education past high school, whether at a professional training program, a community college, or a four-year college or university. Reach Higher aims to ensure that all students understand what they need to complete their education by working to expose students to college and career opportunities; helping them understand financial aid eligibility; encouraging academic planning and summer learning opportunities; and supporting high school counselors who do essential work to help students get into college.

    The Reluctant Shero

    The Reluctant Shero

    Many people think that being a leader is easy. It's not. You have to sit when others want to stand and stand when others want to sit. Most of all, as a leader, one has to lead with an empathetic heart because the masses are not filled with individuals of the same mind, experiences and abilities of one another. The competent leader knows that the masses are comprised of diverse individuals who could possibly grow together to have the same heart with just the right balance of guidance and support. No one ever really desires to jump into a position of true leadership (pregnant with obstacles and scrutiny), but when people of integrity rise to the occasion, it is a thing of divine grace and beauty. It oftentimes seems like these mighty people of valor are rare, yet I have been inspired by an individual who is exactly that type of person. She is my reluctant shero, Kanika Wellington-Jones.

    The women who inspired me

    When I got the email about the "women who inspire" challenge I wasn't planing on entering because I had a hard time thinking of someone who inspired me. Then I realized that there were so many women who inspired me or taught me an amazing life lesson or 4. So let's look at who these women are.

    How One Woman Created A Local Global Movement

    How One Woman Created A Local Global Movement

    When Albania Rosario arrived to the United States from the Dominican Republic at age 18, she came alone. She did not speak a word of English. Not one word. But sometimes, vision speaks louder than words. Sometimes not even a basic lingusitic understanding is needed to achieve greatness. Albania is a perfect example.

    The Best Feminist Writers

    The Best Feminist Writers

    When doing an English degree the word "feminism" does not fade no matter what class you take. Eventually, there will be either a professor or a theme of a book that mentions feminism. There is no escaping this. I decided to compile a list of female writers that were feminists. These female writers are ones that made an imprint on the past. So, I will not bore with more information and dive right into the list of female feminist writers that influenced the past.

    Gia - The Shooting Star

    ´´Life and death, energy and peace. If I stop today it was still worth it. Even the terrible mistakes I made and would have unmade if I could. The pains that have burned me and scarred my soul, it was worth it, to have been allowed t walk where I’ve walked, which was hell on earth, heaven on earth, back again, into, under, far in between, through it, and above’’ – Gia
