Can You Guess Who Said This? my personal quest to shift our language around beauty and power to a more authentic and genuine perspective...I'm going to, once a week, present a quote from someone who is currently in the public eye...a LOT...and see if you can guess who it is that made the statement.
This week's quote comes from someone I hope to meet one day. I think all of us would say that we feel like she is one of us...someone we can trust...someone we'd love to meet at our local Starbucks and chat for a while on motherhood, the challenges of being real despite the efforts of our culture to make us otherwise...and leadership.

So here goes: Guess! I dare ya!

"I'm an example of what is possible when girls from the very beginning of their lives are loved and nurtured by people around them. You too can control your own destiny."

After she spoke, someone went to shake her hand, and she said, 'No, I don't do that. I hug."
So...who is our mystery woman?


  1. It had to be!!

    I can just feel that even through media pictures.

    It makes me think of Maya Angelou's poem Phenomenal Woman... you can read it here and many other places...

    Cheers to all of us phenomenal women!
