When I was a little girl, my mom read stories to me every night. It was my favorite time of the day because it was the only time I had her to myself. Mom was always a super animated storyteller with her voice inflection and facial expressions. She has influenced my life path in many ways and being an animated storyteller is one of them.
I’m proud to be my mom’s only daughter. She raised me in equality with my three brothers. She guided me to be influenced and inspired by hardworking women of integrity who overcame adversity while blazing their own purposeful path. Yet I don’t think she realized that she was one of those inspiring women, too.
