Women of the year!

November 11, 2010 § 2 Comments

Each year Glamour Magazine honors brave and courageous women around the world.  It is very inspirational to read about women who not only are successful in their careers, but go above and beyond to touch the lives of their fellow humans.  It gives me great pleasure to read their stories and reminds me to stand for what I believe in and blaze my own trails.

One story that really stood out to me is that of Dr. Hawa Abdi and her daughters.  These brave and honorable women, run a camp for displaced persons near Mogadishu, Somalia. The camp houses approximately 90,000, mostly women and children who were left by their men who either left to find work, are dead or are fighting.

This story personally touched me because it has long been my dream to help women in Africa. In the words of Dr. Abdi “Women can build stability. We can make peace.”
