Role Models

You know it's funny
When I was in college I bought a few books that had nothing to do with my curriculum.
I was fascinated by Cleopatra. Her personality, her power, how she ruled her empire. And though I didn't particularly like JLo as an artist, I always respected her as a business woman who could build her empire, as the face of her empire. I saw a commercial for Amex once. It was Diane Von Furstenburg talking about her life and how when she was young (my age) she didn't know what she wanted to do, but she knew who she wanted to be. Though I'm nowhere near the caliber of these women I know they all had the same feeling I have. To make big change. To make a big difference.
The one thing I have in common with these women is that we started small.
I know the kind of woman I want to be.
I'm still small but one day I'll have my empire, just as these marvelous women do.
