The first step is to define it, ask for it and then go for it. Ultimately, no one has the power to define your worth when you recognize that in your very core you have purpose and you matter. If you don’t recognize that, you’re giving your power away. It’s vital that each individual recognizes that they play an essential role in leading systematic change.” ~Elisa Parker
