  • I grew up in a... starkly different type of household. My mom was definitely not a person who should have been a parent & the same goes for my father. My aunts were cool, but never really around because of all the bullshit my parents would cause. Soooooo there wasn't a women who inspired me in my life.

  • My grandma, since she raised up 4 kids during civil war when her husband died due to a bomb that stroke there house leaving the father sitting in the balcony dead infront if his wife and children. Her children were too young ( 3-7-8-12) but she managed to teach and raise her children even where her husband's family tried taking custody of the children. WAY TO GO GRANDMA!

  • All the girls that I was inspired by were authentic, they were confident, sporty, amazing posture and hard worker or highly focused but they constantly reminded me to value relationships with people that bring out the best in them

  • my Nana.
    She was the glue that held our family together.
    She was headstrong but caring for others, at the same time.

  • I've said it before on here. It was a teacher I had in 3-5 grade. She had a doctorate and math and physics, dressed very old British governess style, and was very strict, but respectful. She was on the of the best teachers I'd ever had. She liked me for me and gave me confidence in math when I had absolutely none. She was also bisexual, but she kept that very quiet. It was well known that in her free time she liked to ride horses and that she had a ranch out in the country somewhere. Later, when I moved to the Americas, so did she. She always inspired me because she was who she was when nobody else dared to be like that.

  • My grandmother.

    She had such humbleness that I didn’t even realise who she was until after she died.

    My parents lost my brother 2 months before his 5th birthday and my mum didn’t like my grandma anyway but his death split the family. My grandmother took it with sadness but understanded (not the same with my grandpa). She was a sweet and kind lady and when I learned her life... I couldn’t believe it.

    At home, she raised 2 children. Her husband was a pretentious and opinated man, the sort who the women were in the kitchen and their opinion was irrelevant.

    She was actually a pianist for the Royal Navy in the second world war. She would be at the ports and would play the sailors in. She was an extremely talented musician and well respected. But her humbleness is what I admire the most. She would never put you down, she was just... she was lovely. I’m sad I only met her occasionally and she was mentally ill by then. I loved my time with her.
