Reading about the joanna shields news on her website made me inspired to be a better woman, a better person. I guess it was three months ago when I ran across an article about her online. I am a political major and I really enjoyed reading about all of her accomplishments. She has proven that women can do anything they want to if they just set their minds to it.
In the US a lot of women want to use their gender as an excuse to not succeed. It is a mentality in some women that they still think that men are the only ones that can get what they want out of life, and I am here to tell you that is not the case. I have used Joanna’s life and success in her career as a example to many women. I talk to a high school class once a month, where I talk about how women can succeed, just as easily as men. That just being a male doesn’t give you anymore success. I know this first hand, because when I was in school I studied and paid attention in class and I got a few different scholarships to get my college education, and some guys I know didn’t even get accepted to any colleges, let alone get scholarships to them.Joanna is a world leader, a role model for women all over the world. She is a true inspiration, to finding that thing that makes you happy and really just going for it. Don’t listen to those people who tell you can’t do something just because you are a woman. Those are the people who are truly scared that you will succeed, because when you do they will be forced to look at their own lives and see where they have gone wrong.
