Here’s to Strong Women

May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.

Dad

When I was growing up, my dad constantly told me I could be the president of the United States. I always thought that was silly because I did not have a particular passion to be our nation’s leader. But it’s important to acknowledge that this encouragement left a greater impression. It was my dad’s way of telling me I could do and be anything I wanted. I had the power to make it happen, and I hold the potential to make a difference in the world.

Reviewing all of the coverage for International Women’s Day reminds me that not every girl receives such encouragement by those around them. Thank you, dad, for instilling me with the confidence to pursue my passions and to reach my potential. I will do my best to support all the women in my life to do the same. #Pledgeforparity
