It’s Women’s Day, a day to celebrate our victories, our heroes, look ahead to the future, and roll up our sleeves to help women everywhere rise to their potential and conquer adversity.
Instead of focusing on one exemplary female, though, I want to show appreciation and respect to the young women who are finding their voices far younger than I did.
These young women, some of whom are still in High School, are increasingly taking the baton from my generation and those above. It is wonderful to see and gives me hope, a rare commodity for me these days.
So keep speaking your truth, register to vote, help your friends register; you are a tidal wave of potential. You are capable of changing the world.
If you have any doubts about that, please look up Malala Yousafzai.
Happy International Women’s Day to all of us. Here’s to a brighter future for everyone.
