At SheSpeaks, we've been inspired by so many women, both those we know personally and those we've never met. Here are just a few of them:

My Mom

The woman who has positively influenced me is my mom, Ying Lo. She has taught me to never doubt my intuition and to go for what I love to do. She is the reason I am 100% my unapologetic self and strive to do more with my life. - Gaonou

J.K. Rowling

Aside from being an amazing author, J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter) faced a lot of rejection and persevered to see her vision come to life. She gives back generously, speaks her mind and holds true to her beliefs. - Stephanie

My Grandmother

She was an amazing woman who grew up in a time with gender role expectations, yet went on to receive her Master's and start various organizations, including women’s organizations. She was incredibly wise and always gave the best advice. - Melissa

My Mom's Group

When my oldest son was born, I met a group of amazing new moms. We started going out to dinner once a month and we haven't stopped for more than twelve years. These women have inspired me to be a better mom and a stronger person. They also taught me how important it is to support other women - and find women who support you. - Susan

Serena Williams

Serena Williams is more than just an incredible tennis player. She also uses her platform for good and has become a great role model for all, but especially girls, sisters and now moms. Her passion for excellence is inspring. I love her new Nike video that says it all.  - Carol

    Mrs. Michele Obama has inspired me. I recently went to see her speak and I also read her book. I believe that she is down to earth, very caring, very intelligent, well-rounded, professional and above all grounded. She is hopeful and engaged. I admire those qualities and her story inspires me.

    My Mom. Widowed at the age of 34 with 3 kids aged 11, 9, and 1, she was the strongest person I have ever known. Completely dedicated to my father, she never remarried, she lived her life to the fullest for herself and her kids. She raised 2 young boys to be positive, hard working, respectful members of society. She taught me what a strong, determined woman was, to never give up, no matter how bad things seem. She passed away a year after I was married, which was 25 years after my dad died. The lessons she taught me are with me every single day, as I am fully dedicated to my husband, and raising my son to be everything I know she would want him to be. When I hear, you are just like your mother, I take that as the highest compliment anyone could ever give to me.

    My Mom. She has dementia so the struggle is real for her. She is such a strong woman and it breaks my heart every day to watch her progression with this terrible disease.

    My Grandmother is one of my biggest inspirations in my life! She is a very strong Lady that raised 3 Children on her own, she worked hard & never asked for help, she made sure my Sister & I had everything we needed and wanted growing up and rarely thought about herself. To this day she is still helping Others every opportunity she has, she is very involved in her Church and always takes care of her Family! I love this Woman with all my heart & I will always be a Grandma's Girl!

    The woman who has positively influenced my outward look on life and myself is Betty White. She has taught me that restrictions are only in the eye of the beholder and anything is possible when you face it head on. She is the reason that I kind of don't mind getting older and am myself all the time with no regrets or apologies.
