07-10-19 – Phenomenal Woman, That’s Me

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.
– Maya Angelou

Hey Fam,

From starting your own business to taking care of yourself in the process, their summer has been dedicated to addressing the concerns of women. That’s why i’m glad to help highlight their series.
