I met this woman through Twitter.
This loud, larger than life, full of life woman. Did I mention she’s loud?
She walks into a room and fills it.
She has Lived and when you meet her you know it.
She has transformed her career from an amazing cellist (I only know she was amazing because she told me!) to an in-demand wedding photographer.
She’s worked her guts out and is finally – I think she’d agree – living her dream. Because she adores her job.
She’s worked her guts out because she wants the best for her two beautiful boys. And she wants the best for herself.
And she goes about it with a determination that’s inspiring to watch.
This post is for for week 145 of The Gallery: Inspirational Women.
This theme was promted by a session at blogging conference CybHer, which highlighted the fact that very soon (other than the Queen) there will no longer be any women on UK bank notes.
When Elizabeth Fry is removed from the £5 note and replaced with Winston Churchill, that will be it. No more women.
If you want to follow the campaign visit NixdMinx’s blog to watch the bank note debate and find out who others are voting to be put on a bank not.
