What Women’s Summit 2015 did for me.
I attended last year to honor a woman who made a huge impact on my life as a little girl and still does today. She received the “Lizzy” award. I thought that was the only reason I attended this conference until my life as a whole changed so much. I gained a new found confidence that had been lost due to a run of lots of tragedies. In 2013 I faced some of the hardest challenges in my life. The latest was the death of my father. This “summit” gave me hope again. It showed me that I could make a difference now to honor him and even more so, to do a greater good for others and myself.
