Every woman should have a woman in their life that they 1) Look up to and 2) have look up to them.
I’ll be honest here for a minute. My biological mother wasn’t involved in my life…like ever. And while I am not someone that yearns for female attention as a result, it most definitely made me a better, and more reliable, mother. I have also been surrounded by great women in my life. Friends like Kim and Lynsey, parenting figures like my stepmom and grandmother, and my neighbors that I see tirelessly helping out with raising their grandchildren.
With Dove relaunching the “Recognize Her” app on their facebook page, it was a great time for me to ask those around me:
“Who do YOU believe should be famous for being a role model?”
Many women jumped to let me know what women they have in their lives that deserve to be famous!
Toni from Just Stop Screaming told me:
My mother. During her battle with cancer she was still focused on improving the outlooks of others going through it. She has always put others first even during the hardest times of her life and it’s such an inspiration to me and who I try to model myself after.
Jen Jamar from Life With Levi said:
I just met Andrea Metcalf over the weekend and was inspired enough to buy her book that night, even though we didn’t even talk about her book during our conversation. She’s an amazing, strong, motivated woman that really believes in what she’s doing, AND believes that other people can be just as successful as she is.
