    Seattle, WA - Feb 07, 2015

  • Senator Patty Murray

    Seattle, WA - Feb 07, 2015

    While lobbying for educational programs for her community, Patty Murray was told by a legislature that she could not make a difference because she was “just a mom in tennis shoes.” That year, the school program was funded and Patty, and her tennis shoes, headed to becoming a US Senator. When we encounter things in life that we do not agree with we can say “what a shame” or we can say, “I am going to change that”. Patty is her own example of “when women are involved in the decision making process, we make a difference.”

  • Mary Nam

    Seattle, WA - Feb 07, 2015

    Mary Nam believes in making the most of what is in front of you. Growing up in a household where no curfew meant never leaving the house, Mary used her own curiosity to guide her path. Mary’s challenge for you: “Ask your questions. Use your voice.” Because if you choose not to, “you are the only one that does not know.” Be the girl that raises her hand, regardless of whether you are asking or answering the question.
