Voices - International Women's Day

Sopphey Says: Voices - International Women's Day
Graphic created for local event.

Creating an event is a form of art. It really is. I've created multiple events since high school. I usually just name a place, give the event a name, and invite several people to meet me at the event. I think I have event making down to a science. But, this event, this one is more complex. It's bigger. It's something I want you to take a part of.

See, everyone has a story. I want to invite everyone on the blogosphere to share a story. It can be any kind of story. A story about your career, your life, your loved ones. You don't have to be a woman to share a story either. All stories are worth sharing.

I'll start with a story I don't tell too often. I've always wanted to be Mother Teresa. My admiration for her began in middle school when I learned that she helped the poor. I didn't understand what untouchables were then, so they were grouped in as poor in my mind. And because I grew in a lower income neighborhood, anyone who helped the poor was Super Fabulous in my book.

I don't think I'm quite Mother Teresa now. But, I do hope to become like her. I want to be encouraging, understanding, and helpful to others. I want to help everyone, love everyone. I even want there to be less suffering in the world. They sound like wonderful dreams and I'm too determined to make them a reality. I really do want to make the world a better place. And because I'm determined, I will never give up in my dream.

What are your dreams? Share a story. You can share your story in the comments or by leaving a link to your blog.
