March is Women’s History Month and today, March 8th is International Women’s Day.
I want to share who my personal woman hero is and that is my grandma, my mom’s mom.
My mom has talked a lot about what my grandma has done to get her family to be as thriving and flourishing as it is now.
She was the driver of moving her family from Mexico to the United States. She was the one who sold everything they had, including the house, so that they can make the move to a whole new country that speaks a completely different language.
A move like that is always a risk and she was willing to take it because she knew things would be better here.
When I reflect on my position in life, I send thanks for all that she did to get me here. It is truly amazing.
Of course, I’m grateful for every woman in my life. My mom, sister, aunts and cousins. They all bring something that has helped enhance my life.
And here are some other women in history and today that I look up to for inspiration and strength:
- Mindy Kaling
- Stacey Abrams
- Shonda Rhimes
- Alexandria Ocasio Cortez
- Roxane Gay
- Cassey Ho (Blogilates)
- Adriene Mishler (Yoga with Adrienne)
- Frida Khalo
- Corinne Fisher & Krystyna Hutchinson (Guys We F*cked Podcast)
