Lately I have been interested in reading books about female celebrities and their rise to power. Two woman’s stories in particular really moved me in such a way that I have been inspired to work harder and more proud of my heritage. The idea of being a woman go-getter isn’t something new it’s been building for centuries. So, are we as young women continuing the legacy?
What I liked most about theses celebrity autobiographies I read is that these women accomplished so much in a time when it was uncommon to. They risked having a personal life and family to be the woman with the successful career. For some of us that would be a deal breaker, but at the same time going after something takes time and sacrifices.
We would all like to have the career and the life, but sometimes juggling all those responsibilities can’t be accomplished. What I learned most from their stories was to never give up in whatever you pursue. Things may not always work the way you like it, but these women show that living a full life makes up for all the struggles it took to get there.
