a beautiful day

Although I didn’t take Ellie to the women’s march in Chicago today, we did go for a walk so we could have our own march on this beautiful day.

Pardon the scowl. She just woke up from a nap.

I march because I work too hard and won’t let anyone bring me down because I’m a woman. And I won’t allow it for my daughter either. I want her to grow up in a world where opportunities are endless, and she feels happy, strong, confident, optimistic, and empowered to be her best self and achieve greatness.

I am so excited and grateful for all who marched for me and so many others today. I am grateful that I am surrounded by so many wonderful women in my life, in my family, my circle of friends, and at my workplace. 

Just this week, I went to an event for work to support the march, sponsored by GoAbroad.com and the International TEFL Academy. It was a great gathering to empower and support women and international education. 

Here are some of the amazing women I work with every day at the event:

I want to live every day as an example for my little one and for all. An example of love and passion and strength and resilience and hope. 

No matter what party you align yourself with, let’s all believe in equality for women. Always remember…

Who run the world? GIRLS! Xo
