CH Talks: What Woman Role Model Inspires You?

THIS ISSUE MARKS OUR FIRST-EVER COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT SECTION.

After 37 issues, we developed the Community Spotlight section to showcase the voices from our area. We love the idea of giving our community the floor, and so have incorporated this section dedicated to those readers who want to hear and be heard.

ARIANA HUFFINGTON & ANNA WINTOUR 

Arianna Huffington: What I admire about Arianna Huffington is that she is a successful businesswoman who takes the time to make sure she is inspiring young girls and women through her hard work and dedication, that yes, WOMEN CAN… and also pushes the importance of sleep! 
Anna Wintour: Another powerhouse in the publication world, Anna Wintour is a woman you would not mess with—I like that! Hardworking, to the point, takes no BS—it’s inspiring. But I’m not sure about of her take on sleep. 
NICOLLE BERMEJO, Ceres

ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ

Representative Ocasio-Cortez is an outspoken proponent of the people, fighting for a progressive platform including tuition-free public college and the abolishment of ICE. For many, including myself, Ocasio-Cortez is a welcome and necessary voice in the political sphere—one that doesn’t back down or compromise in the face of adversity.

TAYLOR SWIFT

I’ve grown up alongside her and her music and seen her evolve. Her unbreakable spirit, drive, and generosity has always inspired me. Whenever she’s encountered with conflict, she always finds a way to just shake it off.

MY MAMA

My mama, she goes to work to make money to keep us going and provide for us. And she comes home and takes care of the house even when we should do it. And she’s always working hard for us and never complains. She does it because she loves us and wants the best for us. I’ve come to her with issues she might not understand but she always tries to listen and lets me know she loves me no matter what!
