When asked what Women’s History Month means to her, Gail shared: Women’s History Month means acknowledging our accomplishments while recognizing that there is so much more that we are capable of achieving. It is an opportunity to share our knowledge and journeys with young girls to ensure they are motivated, possess confidence, and build their self-esteem. It is also a reminder to mentor and support each other every single day.
Thank you, Gail, for standing in the spotlight for Women’s History Month. This is what this celebration is all about.
