Some of them are currently in the public eye. Others have created positive change that SheNative is honoured to recognize publicly for the first time. The stories, lessons and wisdom that's been shared...you're in for a deeply moving, critically insightful experience on SheNative's blog and social media in 2020.
During this time I'll be interviewing more resilient women in Canada and the United States for SheNative's blog and social media so that more women changemakers can share their journey of resilience. So, with this in mind, if you could choose one woman who embodies resilience and changemaking, who would it be and why? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts. I'm looking for 13 more women to interview between Jan - March 2020.
Thank you and I look forward to receiving your suggestions!

Changing relationships that you thought were going to be ride-or-die. These are a very small selection of the bumps I've experienced over the years.
Or we could talk about one of the most remarkable gifts entrepreneurship can provide: The ability to extend moments in time on short notice. To explain what I mean, here's a post I wrote on my Instagram back in August 2019...
