When I first started this blog, I was going strong with the whole “Moxie Tuesday” bit, and for some reason I decided to discontinue it. Luckily, all good ideas come back around, and now we have “Moxie Friday”, a weekly tribute to all the positive female role models out there. Who doesn’t love a great role model?
So, who shall I pick for our very first Friday female role model?
Why Lizzie Velasquez of course, a beautiful and brave inspiration to us all. She was once labeled as the “World’s Ugliest Woman” and now dedicates her life to bringing awareness about bullying, her rare medical condition, and the importance of inner beauty.
My favorite quote:
“Am I gonna let the people who called me a monster define me? No. I’m gonna let my goals and my success and my accomplishments be the things that define me.”
Well said Lizzie.
