I often read biographies of both famous and everyday people to remind myself that challenge is no orphan; yet neither are courage, hope and achievement.
When I see the life of Mother Teresa and the legacy that she has left, I am challenged; one Armenian nun from small beginnings and with little backing becomes the most influential person of the 20th Century.
Look around you right now! There are women all around the world taking on challenges in social equality, environmental issues, education and medical fields.
We can take what we have and bring it to the table and at the same time expand our world and capacities beyond what we would ever have imagined.
