Who inspires you? Women who follow their dreams. Often times we go down a path society or our college major deem “successful” without considering our innate passions.  Maybe that got suppressed over time or you were told it’ll never work.  Go back to what lit you up as a kid.  Just maybe you have a future doing the thing that supposedly couldn’t be done.
