Being a single woman these days is exciting, but it can be a struggle too. We are juggling things like careers, friends, dating and sex. Then, of course, there’s the pressure we get from society to fit a certain mold. With social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, women are under more scrutiny than ever before; As if we didn’t already have it hard enough.

75 Inspirational Quotes From The World’s Greatest Leaders To Celebrate Black History Month

A celebration of iconic leaders and civil rights activists. Black History Month, also commonly known as African-American History Month, is celebrated in many countries around the world including the United States, United Kingdom and Canada, to recognize the greatest leaders, events and important contributions of African Americans throughout history. Originally created in the 1920s as “Negro History Week” by historian Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, and later — in the 1970s, starting at Kent State University — president Gerald Ford expanded the event to an entire month. Celebrated in February to coincide with the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln, president Ford explained that the United States needed to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” Today, Black History Month is a time used to recognize the world’s greatest African-American leaders in all walks of life. From Thurgood Marshall, who was the first African American ever appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court, to Madam C.J. Walker – the world’s first African-American self-made millionaire, to Barack Obama – the first African-American president in U.S. history, who was re-elected to serve for two consecutive terms in the White House. In celebration of February being Black History Month, we’ve […]

Nelson Mandela is considered one of the greatest leaders in modern history, and continues to be one of the most known and beloved figures in politics, activism, and humanitarian work. He passed away at the age of 95 in December of 2013, but today, July 13, 2018 marks what would have been Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday. To celebrate, we’ve gathered some of his most inspirational quotes that both motivate us, and make us remember how far we’ve come — and how far we still have to go. Nelson Mandela was born on July 18, 1918 in a small village known as Mvezo in South Africa. In his youth, he became an activist against South Africa’s racist apartheid system that segregated South Africa’s black and white populations. In 1942, Mandela joined the African National Congress and within that helped form the African National Congress Youth League, who took part in boycotts, strikes, civil disobedience, and refusals of cooperation in order to peacefully protest the racist policies of the South African government. This continued for 20 years until 1962 when Nelson Mandela was sent to prison after organizing a political strike, where he remained for 27 […]

A ship is always safe at the shore — but that is not what it is built for. No one wants to live a basic life, but it can be hard to figure out how to step out of your comfort zone. We’re constantly on a search for happiness and we all want to lead an exciting and fulfilling life, but to make these dreams a reality we have to be proactive and search for new experiences and new opportunities.
