The Road to Resiliency

Resilience 2.0
Matthew Standerski Photography

The American Psychology Association (APA) describes resilience as the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress. Previously, my article offered a space for many to emotionally bond. Some may have interpreted the battle cry as a call for women's pity. I am here to follow up because I, like many of you reading, am a resilient woman. Not only am I demanding change, but taking mollie's case as an opportunity to make it.

Moving forward, identifying resiliency within ourselves, it is important to capacitate the need for positive plans and the steps necessary to be resilient. If we demand change from others we must first, ask ourselves how we can change. A good leader, leads by example, and "LADIES" if we want to make a change we must be the change!

How do I see this change occurring in my life? First off I took a chance to use my voice, we all have a voice, USE IT. Identify your strengths, and be confident in them. Second, through the all-women's organization, I am apart of on my campus, I have participated in facilitating a self- defense class. Third, I am setting a personal goal to keep Mollie in my heart, but to no longer engage in mass media posts regarding her case or Christhian. This is how I have decided to manage my feelings, and per the APA, that is a factor in resilience.

Finally, once you have all embarked on an opportunity for personal change, and are confident to self- identify as a resilient woman, I ask for you to reach out. Share with me why you are a resilient woman, and I will be sure to use your story as an effort to band resilient women together in a network change makers.

Always more.


A resilient woman.

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
