What Female is Inspiring You Right Now
Gabby– The person that is inspiring me right now, and will always inspire me is my mom. Not everyone is lucky enough to have a bad ass bitch as their mom. My mom drilled into me from a young age the notion of independence because she always wanted me to be able to take care of myself. She pushed me to be the best I could be, to make my dreams a reality, and never settle for less. I wouldn’t be half the woman I am today with out my mom!
Ashley – I’m Inspired by my Aunt Gloria. She has persevered through several life tragedies and has never given up hope. The kind of tragedies that you hear about but never think could actually happen to you. She remains a tower of strength and a haven of love and support for her family and people around her. I admire her will to go on with a light heart, and a smile on her face through it all.
Sal– Laura Jane Grace from Against Me! has been a constant inspiration in my life since i was 14, and I have more respect and admiration for her now than ever. It takes a lot of guts to be who you really are, even in our so called “post racial / unbiased / everyone is equal and treated the same” america. As a band i feel like Against Me! has always done this, making the records they wanted to make even if it may have alienated some of their fans. When Laura came out as a transgender, telling of how she questioned her gender identity since she was a young boy, I realized that even my heroes I thought to be incredibly strong and self-assured have their struggles. She was able to overcome her demons and come out on the other side with guns blazing and guitars shredding in high heels and a mini skirt. That’s punk as fuck.
