There's something about this woman that inspires the hell out of me. It's not only what she's been through. It's more than what she's achieved. She doesn't pretend life is easy and she doesn't try to hide her struggles.
It's that she never gives up. And I know she never will.
Listen to her story. Draw strength from it. Then, square your shoulders, stand a little taller and take a step forward.
