Wanted: Women Who Empower

Time and time again we read about women's squabbles and falling out because of jealousy and competition.

Wanted: Women Who Empower
EMPOWER - Metro CMA District

Time and time again we read about women's squabbles and falling out because of jealousy and competition. In this saga, there are usually Alpha women who are criticized for being overachievers, bossy, demanding and narcissistic. In the same manner, you will also hear stories about pitiful plights of timid underachieving women who hate Alpha women with a vengeance. Given a chance they cross paths, They avert their gaze, scurry and run away as if they were avoiding the plaque.

Women by nature are competitive, almost always, they want to be better than the rest. There is nothing wrong with that. However, if we cannot be happy for others when they achieve or think we deserve all the glory, then, that takes on a twisted and sinister frame of mind. We need others to achieve so that they too can contribute to the common good, to society, and to the improvement of the human race.

We cannot change the way most women are and we cannot change their perception of us. But we can put it out there that we need more women who are willing to empower other women. We need more women mentors who are very confident of who they are and willing to motivate, inspire and encourage younger women to achieve. We need role models who are not threatened by aspiring and younger over-achievers! We need more women who will not compete, instead, empower and teach others to become more like themselves.......perhaps, maybe even better.

After all, we all live in the same world where if most people achieve, they can influence and make it a better place for you, for me..... and for future generations. We are not perfect, but if we all help each other in our search for improvement, then and only then, can we say we have done our part by positively influencing someone's life for the better!

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
