five years ago today, i became a feminist; although at the time, i didn't know the word for it. today, there are many elaborate things i could say; but mostly, i am thankful.
there are many individuals and figures in my life that continue to inspire and amaze me . . . that have taught me self-worth, the beautiful, unique, imperative role of myself and other women in society. who have lent me their voice until i found my own. they continue to love and fight for the rights of women across the world. through their every day actions and interactions, they blur definitions and help expand society's knowledge, minds, and hearts.
