Amy's 52 Phenomenal Women Project has introduced me to amazing women who I would never have known about. Some have conquered serious illness. Others have created businesses out of passions. I was honored to have been invited to the project and, to this day, do not think I have done anything phenomenal. All the others inspire me to do more.
There are plenty of sources to read about famous or powerful women (in the news or People magazine) but it's such a joy hearing about women who are making a difference in ways big and small in their normal, daily lives. Each profile is interesting, educational and of course very inspiring. It's not easy raising a family, holding down a job (in or out of the home) and nurturing friends and family. It's lovely to celebrate women who are living lives of passion, of focus, of commitment, of fulfillment, and to appreciate their accomplishments. It makes me feel like I'm part of a very special community of women, and it's a joy to be able to celebrate each woman you profile.
52PWP celebrated my success and helped me celebrate others. It was a very powerful experience because it highlighted our differences and made them our super powers. The donation to Dress for Success was a perfect way to bring the project full circle. Amy really thought of everything and the one on one time with her was a treasure. I absolutely love the images she created of me.
