We’re living in a time when it’s vitally important that mothers and daughters connect.
Although I’m only 13, as soon as my mother suggested we go to the Women’s March on Washington, I said yes -- not only because this march will be historic but because of who she is for me. My mother is my best friend. She has always modeled independence, courage and strength. She inspires me, persuades me to do stuff I’ve been afraid of, and still continues to teach me the difference between right and wrong. So far, the greatest lesson I have learned from her is that the negative things people say don’t define who I am.
I’m about to become part of American history. I’m so extremely excited to go out and march. I’m going to get to meet new independent women and hear their opinions and ideas about what’s going on in the world.
I’m also terribly thrilled because this will be my first rally and it’s going to be enormous. It’ll probably be the most vast crowd of people I’ll ever see in my lifetime (about 200,000 women are coming), and I simply cannot wait.
