We_Can_Do_It!_(3678696585)

March is Women’s History Month!  It has been so inspiring to see all the support for women’s issues.

We’ve made a lot of progress, but we still have a long way to go.

Now the focus will be on our generation. It is important to think about how you can use your talents further the standing of women!

A Quote from Eleanor Roosevelt

1458512363461

This is one of my favorite quotes- it really empowers me. Eleanor Roosevelt was an activist, a politician, a diplomat, and First Lady during one of the most trying times in American history. She was a strong woman, and her quotes, such as this one, continue to motivate and give strength in today’s world. This quote makes me think about my potential, my ambitions, and how excited I am about them. It also reminds me that dreams do have beauty because they are such a deep part of you and you are beautiful, inside and out. Find out more about Eleanor Roosevelt on my resources section.
