Wearing a black belt does not mean I am invincible, it means that I never gave up, I worked pass the pain, I overcame the disappointments, I did not cave into my doubts, and I faced my fears.

Tae Kwon Do means everything to me because it is me.

Halle Berry Halle Berry has opened the door for many girls’ dreams. I believe she is an inspiration to all women because she has proven that they can make a name for themselves by never letting anyone get in the way of their dreams.

Halle is an inspiration to American girls because she came from nothing and is now one of the highest paid actresses of our time.

To begin with, I interviewed my mom’s friend Justine. Before this interview I already knew her and what she did for a career, and I knew it would be a great idea to interview her since she’s a General Pediatrician and I also strive to be a Pediatrician for my future career. Justine is a very happy, caring person. She always has the biggest smile on her face and always the best attitude, with someone like that it makes you feel good as well because you don’t want to be with someone that is negative about life 100% of the time because that would just put you in a worst mood. She absolutely loves her job as a Pediatrician, and she always about how great it feels working with little kids, watching them grow, and also giving them the ability to
The impact she has had on the world definitely helped shaped so many women into how they are today by being the woman she is.

Michelle Obama is an empowerment to some people of the world due to her accomplishments.
Even though it was around the time of world war I she didn’t just stop at getting her degree, but continued to write to the government for funding and building well established nursing program for woman. With the collaboration of Birdie Dunn, they introduce the idea of State Nurses Association that lead to its opening in 1913. Because of her braveness and contribution to the community, she inspired so many people especially me to fight for what you believe in. At the time when founding the NCNA, it was difficult to have all race come together, so they had separate association going on at the time, the African American nurses who was led by Carrie Early and the other one who was led by Wyche’s. It was illegal for the both group to come together in public places as segregation was occurring.
Throughout my life time I have been inspired by many great people but the one who stands out the most is Marian Wright Edelman. Marian, born June 6,1939, has been an advocate for disadvantaged American for her entire professional life. She is the president and founder of Children 's Defense Funds, and an activist for the rights of children. I first read about Mrs. Edelman when I came across an inspirational quote from her, "You really can change the world, if you really care enough" This quote spoke to me in many ways. Out of curiosity, I continued to do more research on her and what I learned were things that changed my life for the better.

The memoir has a linear structure, going chronologically through her life. I felt like I was definitely more interested in her story as it went farther along, however there was never a spot where I wanted to stop reading. Her teenage years and on were quite gripping, seeing her coming into her own as a young woman while trying to keep the family together emotionally and economically. I cringed at times, and at others I was truly inspired by her unconditional love for her family even when they treated her so poorly. As the reader you can really see the strength she gained as a child and it inspires.
Ultimately, Mary has somehow turned such a daunting event in her life into a positive outcome and now helps people overcome the same event. In conclusion, Mary Kenyon is a true hero.
