What “Power of She” Means to Me

I have been wanting to publish this post for a long time now, but it’s a topic that can be a little difficult to put into words. Or at least in a way that others will be able to understand and relate to. I’ve learned over time that no matter what we do in this

Blame Taylor Swift 

When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a famous singer when I grew up. My mom can attest to this. I drew pictures of myself on stage with a microphone, under the spotlight, being a superstar, alongside my best friend Courtney. Courtney and I would lock ourselves in a room and create
