10 Self-Made Women You Should Follow on Instagram

I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass. – Maya Angelou

The commitment the organization I work for has to improving the lives of women and girls is a blessing for me. While impactful organizations like this do exist. There are still so many issues affecting women today. These issues stem from systematic roots of today’s society. As it relates to the prevention of women to rise to the full potential and capabilities they have been gifted. This is why I love to celebrate women who have been able to overcome challenges. Women who have overcome the obstacles this world throws at them. Here’s a list of some inspirational women who are kicking ass every day.
