tip#694). And it was only 48 hours before that I had confirmed a place to live. Then as soon as I had moved in I needed to prepare for a motivational talk I was booked to give. Why is my life so full of adversities? I believe it’s to learn how to always maintain my indestructible optimism no matter what AND to be an example for others wanting to overcome their own challenges.
This belief was once again confirmed when I looked into the eyes of my recent audience of internationally educated professionals for the organization M-Bridge, Cultural Integration Society for Professionals. In my talks I share my successes as a business owner and entrepreneur as well as my struggles with depression, mid-life crisis and bankruptcy. That’s when I always see individuals riveted to what I am revealing and they approach me after to thank me. They tell me they just needed inspiration in their own struggles from someone who has gone through it too. These emotional moments give my life meaning and joy.
Miss Representation (2011)
The documentary, Miss Representative, explores how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in influential positions. The film is filled with thought-provoking interviews with Condoleezza Rice, Lisa Ling, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Rosario Dawson, Geena Davis, Jane Fonda, Dr. Jackson Katz, Dr. Jean Kilbourne, and Gloria Steinem. There are also a myriad of television and movie footage demonstrating the limited portrayal of what it means to be a powerful woman. See: movie trailer
