Failure: It Sucks But It's Worth It

Don’t be confused by the title. If you have experienced failure you know what it means, and if you haven’t experienced failure, let me explain. When I look back at my life, so far, I can give you examples of times I have failed and how those failures led to different paths or better successes. I can tell you about how failures led me to redirect, to reflect, and to deal with hard truths that I was ignoring. But I can also tell you that I never celebrated a failure in the moment.

How Much Is A Girl Worth?

“So, I ask, how much is a little girl worth? How much priority should be placed on communicating that the fullest weight of the law will be used to protect another innocent child…?” (Rachel Denhollander) These words have haunted me since she echoed them in the courtroom at Larry Nassar’s hearing. Rachel Denhollander was the first woman to publicly speak about being sexually assaulted. The bravery she showed knowing there would be too many that would doubt her and even some who would shame her, exemplifies the resiliency of women.
