On International Women's Day I want to say thank you to the woman who has truly inspired me. Nancy, mom, you are one hell of a woman. My mother has a lived a life worthy of a book deal. She has gone through almost every hardship one can think of. As kids my mother always made something out of nothing for my sister, myself and anyone on her doorstep. Her heart, home and kitchen has been open to every single person. I can truly say that #blackwomensave because of this woman. I can remember my mother taking in my sisters' friends who needed a home, being the person to talk to my friends about the things they didn't want to talk to their parents about, and even once picking up a hitchhiker and buying them a bus ticket to their destination. I watched my mother go to school while fighting cancer and still being there to comfort me in my minuscule life events. My mother is selfless, dedicated to service to all, and a QUEEN in her own right. Thank you mom. For being an amazing example of everything a great woman embodies.
