Today I watched Hidden Figures. Tears streamed down my face throughout the movie as the main characters were belittled. As opportunities were negated. I was reminded that so often women’s work goes unnoticed. Especially when that woman is of color. In a time where it feels we are not going forward but backwards in women’s rights, how can we believe in the possibilities for women in the world?
I got to believe. Believing is what has kept women like us, women like you and me dreaming. It is for the little girls who are watching and the little girl within. I am a women with much against her and a woman who has soared despite that. I will continue to be her. Today’s mantra is “I believe”.
I believe in me.
I believe in purpose.
I believe in dreams.
I believe in us.
