“The birth of my son completely crystallized all of my priorities. Anything other than my son moved into 2nd, 3rd, 4th place. He is still my foundation from which I live my life.” – Judy Walgren is the editorial director at Viewfind.com.
“Having a child has changed my life. I didn’t go to college but I did want to go. Now I am just trying to make it in this town without a college degree. But even if you do have a college degree the options are either working at Walmart or working some job on the Plaza. Rent is expensive and the locals can’t afford it. Motherhood is hard and I am just trying to get enough sleep. I still feel like I have bouts of postpartum depression and I am just trying to have enough motivation to get out of bed.” – Ella Romancito is a young mother living in Taos, New Mexico.
“I created and managed a five city tour called “My Black is Beautiful”. It was an ad campaign for Proctor and Gamble and was a free beauty event for the audience/attendees. We went to Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago and New Orleans. It was great to bring these free performances and beauty events to these communities and if I wasn’t a woman of color I wouldn’t have had the insight to make the event as successful as it was.” – Arlene Pitterson is an executive producer with Digitalflash
