Hello there Classy,
In celebration of Women’s History Month I attended a luncheon held by the Oasis Center for Women and Girls! I’m so thankful for my good girlfriend Brittney Geathers for inviting me! I was engaged, inspired and motivated by a great amount of amazing women.
While there I met two young leaders who are on the move!!! I was astonished listening to what both of these young ladies have accomplished. When I spoke with them
The picture on the left is me with Paloma Rambana, a 10-year-old lobbyist that advocates for children with vision disabilities. Little Paloma long days at the Capitol and hard work has secured $1 million dollars in funding for the vision impaired children in the 6 to 13 age group. The 10-year-old from Tallahassee was born with Peter’s Anomaly, a rare condition that causes an opacity in the corneas, leaving her legally blind.While Paloma parents make sure she’s able to have the right devices she needs to see, other children with her condition may not be as fortunate. Paloma has fought to make sure they are provided the same vision resources. To learn more about Paloma’s fight for vision equality click here
On my right is Casey Epstein-Gross a 8th grader who isn’t afraid to say she’s a feminist and activist. Casey is breaking barriers by making sure that girls and those of the LGBTQQ community are not secluded by in school. She has worked with school administrators to promote a fair dress code — one that does not place limitations on certain clothing for girls, such as leggings, because they pose a “distraction”.Find out more about Casey’s fight here
Both of you girls rock and I’m so proud of the work you two have done! Keep fighting for what you believe in! While you may run into some obstacles don’t ever let anyone stop you for obtaining your goals!
