This incredible woman was an American poet, memoirist, and civil rights activist. She published seven autobiographies, three books of essays, several books of poetry, and is credited with a list of plays, movies, and television shows spanning over 50 years. For this and many other reasons, Maya Angelou is Shahine’s SHero.

This week we have learned that for many students, when it comes to finding a very inspirational woman who can be their Shero, the title definitely goes to their mom. This is also the case of Keara Golden. For her, that special woman is her mother.

“She sacrificed daily for me as she gave up her early adult years to raise me. We have our ups and downs, but we still make it through!”

When we asked CW student Sandra Gonzalez who her SHero was, she immediately said it was her mother. Sandra’s mom is the perfect example of persistence, resilience, and optimism. She is definitely a SHero!

“Her sacrifice she has done for my sisters and me, and the way she is hardworking inspires me. Nevertheless, she shows true bravery to raise four daughters on her own which can be frustrating and a handful!”
