Today is International Women’s Day! I want to take the time to mention some of the positive women who have influenced my life!
First would have to be my mother:
Most of my values of just being a good human being and respecting other people have come from her. She is a sweet, fierce, kind, forward-thinking, collected and assertive woman. She has helped help shape my values of helping others in my profession but also with being genuine and real with people.
Secondly would be my sisters:
All three have taught me different lessons, about being myself, about how to take-care of myself and how to stand-up for myself. Those three have really shaped how I assert my self in my everyday interactions and how I keep things mellow.
Thirdly would be my friends:
I would mention them all by name, but in reality all of my female friends have impacted how I am a man. Many have taught me emotional tolerance, inspired and instigated my own creativity, and have given me the avenue to explore my hobbies and interests.
Thank you to all the females in my life! Thank you for making me a better person. I aspire to help in anyway I can to contribute to equality!
