For Women’s History Month (March), I decided to interview colleagues, friends, and family who are making history. Where I interviewed and edited all interviews in March, I’m posting them each two days apart.
First interview is up and running. I introduce you to Becky Lawson. A good friend, author, and she also has Cerebral Palsy like me.
Second interview up. Kimmie C. is a hilarious and loyal friend and coworker.
I’d live to introduce you to one of my first sisters by bond, Kristen H. From the moment she met me she was looking out for me, and since we’ve reconnected it’s more of a two-way street. But please be warned, this has more sensitive content. TRIGGER WARNING!
Introducing Lindsey Reisker, an inquisitive and intelligent writing friend of mine. ^-^
Let’s welcome the multi-creative, energetic, and sweet Meghan C. Ever since I met her I could tell she was bubbling over with genuine caring and creativity.
Introducing the talented, caring, and hilarious Anne Stenkjær. She also has Cerebral Palsy like me.
Introducing one of the hardest-working authors and most amazing moms I’ve met, AJ Skelly.
Introducing the friendly, supportive, and talented Elana A. Mugdan.
Now to introduce you to Amanda Porter. She’s incredibly supportive of all of her fellow writers, she’s sweet, and she’s one of the most powerful women I know.
Introducing the hardworking, dedicated, and supportive Abigail Falanga.
Introducing Mama Chico, one of the hardest-working, most supportive, and most-educated women I’ve ever come to meet.
Introducing my well-researched, hard-working, and always reliable friend and coworker Beth Boss. ^-^
Introducing my longtime, supportive, and hardworking friend Nephrys Darkwater – Author ^-^
Introducing the most supportive, loving, and loyal friend I’ve ever had, Clara Y.
Last but certainly not least, introducing the multi-talented, always supportive, and very friendly Erudessa Gentian. ^-^
My last piece for Women’s Empowerment Month Collection. This was inspired by the interview I did with my sister Kristen H. It inspired me to admit and look into getting help for myself. It was really hard to admit that I still have an eating disorder, but I have a plan to work on it.
Next year’s International Women’s Month post below.
This was the first big post of Women’s History Month introducing everyone to the strongest women of my two latest stories. Not just the protagonist and friends, or good guys, all females with strong personalities.
Aubrey is an amazingly strong, independent, and funny woman who happens to be my best friend who is my most recently bond sibling.
Throughout this interview with my creative, studious, and adventurous biological sister I got to know her a lot more.
Again it was nice to get to know another family member better through an interview. She’s my favorite grandma because she has an adventurous spirit, a great heart, and she’s always there to listen.
As I got closer to the animal-loving, funny, and creative Anne, I had to interview her again. We had a great time where I got to learn where her love of animals began. While doing this interview I got to learn the weights and lengths conversions from U.S. and Denmark.
Another animal lover was Tiffany. She’s also an avid reader who is a wonderful family woman.
Belle is my French tutor when I need help, she’s a wonderful person who created a great group on Facebook for a game fandom, and she’s going to classes for social services. I got to learn about the reasoning behind her group, that I moderate for. Then we spoke a lot about the differences of health and mental health in the U.S. and Canada, and I got to learn what social services are in detail.
During this interview, not only did I get to learn about one of my writitng mentors, Irene, but I got to learn a bit more about the writing sprint group I met her and many other creative and intelligent women in.
I interviewed one of my clients to get to know them better and let them know how grateful I was when they realized I needed a break from her story for a while.
Originally Shaneeza wasn’t comfortable with the idea of her interview being on my blog until I shared my blog link with her, so she could see what it was about. She was always so inspiring in the writing group we are part of, that I had to interview her.
Kimmie and I have been friends since college, but from last year till now we got closer. That’s why I decided to interview Kimmie again and learn more about her.
Cheyanne is the ultimate in multitasker. She can work on more stories than anyone I have ever seen all at one time, forty, last we spoke, all in one week. We spoke about what happened with a writing app she frequented. We also spoke about her day job.
I got to learn about some of the gorgeous places here in New York, and where she is in her life now and where she was in her life prior to her most recent job.
Throughout the International Women’s Month research, I had all the women feel free to ask me questions the way I had been interviewing them, so for the last piece of the collection I pieced this together. It was interesting to find out what everyone wanted to know about me.
