Favorite Quote: “Women don’t have to be timid, ignorant and passive; they can be fearless, bold, builders of things, movers of events. If on top of that they are kind, care about you, and insist that you are capable of the same level of accomplishment, you may begin to reassess your goals and your original image of yourself.” –Cheryl Benard in Veiled Courage: Inside the Afghan Women’s Resistance
