Womens History Month - Who is your SHero? My Grandmother says Guilianna Perez & Shemicka Chin

We are almost at the end of #WomensHistoryMonth, and Guilianna Perez & Shemicka Chin have something else in common besides being students at CW. They both admire their grandmothers. For them, they are the perfect SHeroes.

Regarding her grandmother and her godmother, Guilianna says, “They don’t need to have super powers to be a Shero. Just watching them do so much when I was younger always inspired me.”

Womens History Month - Who is your SHero? Harriet Tubman

For CW student Antwon Ethridge, Harriet Tubman is a daily inspiration to change the world around him.  When we asked him the reason that he considers Harriet Tubman a Shero, he said, “She is my Shero because of her perseverance to help slaves get to freedom. I always try to remember to perform selfless acts like volunteering or just helping someone across the street.”

Keara Golden

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!”

Who is your SHero?

We have two very inspirational women. Those women are Oprah Winfrey and Mother Teresa of Calcutta.  CW Student Auchicard Myrtil finds inspiration in Oprah Winfrey and Joseline Velez thinks that Mother Theresa is an example of a life dedicated to help others.

“Oprah Winfrey is very inspirational because she was very poor, and she became rich by working on TV shows.” - Auchicard Myrtil

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.

Sandra Gonzalez

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!”
