With yesterday being international women’s day and this week being international women’s week here at Trinity, I hope everyone has taken the time to appreciate all of the strong and inspirational women of the world. There have been motivational women throughout history who have fought for the rights of their gender and equality; women who fought the stereotypes that they should be treated as lesser or weaker than their male counterparts.
With that being said, I am proud to say that I have met a few females this year that exemplify what it means to be strong, independent, inspirational and hardworking. These are my victory scholar girls!! Each victory scholar here has excelled in everything they have done in life; being leaders on the basketball court, top students in the classroom, motivational coaches, and overall role models in life. They have taken the initiative to keep climbing up their ladders of success and be the best person possible. Each of them will achieve whatever they set out to do in life because of the perseverance and determination that they all possess, and I am lucky that I have gotten to know each and every one of them.
These are the types of females that the world needs- ones that will inspire other women to succeed by being leaders and role models. Women shouldn’t have to feel inferior or unqualified – go out and achieve your dreams and listen to a lot of Beyoncé because as she says, “Who runs the world? GIRLS.”
Shout out to my VS girls and sorry for leaving you out boys 😀
