My Me Too Story, My Almost Me Too Stories, and My Them Too Stories #50. On this episode, I get very personal: my goal is to empower girls and other women by sharing stories from my childhood, my college years, my years as a preschool teacher, and my years as a mom to a child with special needs. Feel free to share them. (P.S. Sorry I was not on my fancy mic for this recording.)
