Walking My Mother To The Gates


Everyone dies. I learned this fact as a child. As I got older, I came to expect I’d losemy parents. Such is the nature of life (and God forbid it be otherwise). But knowingthis information did not prepare me for walking my mother to The Gates.

Breaking Safely Through The Glass Ceiling

Growing up always with a female figure as the breadwinner and head of the household, the concept of female inequality was never anywhere in my mind. To me truly that did not exist. Having strong female role models shaped my life and made me the person I am today, a strong and ultra- independent female. I never really saw much that glass ceiling as much of an obstacle because of the examples in my life, but being in the workplace for the past seven years has taught me a lot about how the world works.
