By Amanda Moses
Inquiring Photographer asks: In light of Women’s History month, the Spring Creek Sun asked residents who are some women you admire?
Crystal Gordon, works with young, autistic adults: “I admire Michelle Obama because she had been at the forefront of female empowerment. She exudes class, sophistication and confidence, which are qualities I
deeply admire. I also like all of her work in improving children’s health by advocating for healthier meals in schools.”
Tierra T., a graduate student: “I have to say I admire Ruby Dee because she broke many racial and gender barriers and advocated for civil rights. Her role as Ruth Younger in the film and stage version of A Raisin in the Sun really resonated with me. I think she paved the way for young black women to excel in the film industry and inspired others to voice their rights.”
Krystal Peña, an accountant: “I admire my mom because she overcame a lot of adversity growing
up, and she raised me right. My mom is a strong and open woman. I also admire my daughter because of the way she sees the world, and I love how, at six years old, she carries herself with so much confidence.”
Mariah Brown, a student, and Tasha Brown, a Dialysis coordinator: “I like Michelle Obama because she inspires me to be like her. She is intelligent and strong. I want to be the President of the United States one day, and Ms. Obama is a role model that makes me think it could be possible,” Mariah Brown said. “I admire Rosa Parks for her resilience: Her courage to stand up for what’s right truly is something to be admired,” Tasha Brown said.
