I wanted to send a personal thank you for everything that you did for our Rising Women Leaders class. You brought connection to our powerful, yet fragmented, thoughts and aspirations. You helped us connect as a group. You helped build friendships. You supported our insecurities and self-discoveries. You cleared our minds to reveal our true potential. You gave us foundation. I don’t know if the rest of the women feel like I do now, but there is an emotional breakthrough and gratitude that I feel after the graduation. Motivation has never been difficult for me to drum up, but this feeling of the field being somewhat cleared so I can speed toward my dreams is quite simply joyous. I want to thank you for helping me see how to reach my potential – how to be a better person every day. I have only just begun, and I will never stop.
