explained, “I watched as my niece came alive for what seemed to me like the first time in a long, long time. I didn't realize how personally important this day would be for me. I am deeply grateful for what you did for all girls, for my girl, and am awed by how seamlessly you made it happen…it was life changing.” When we hear comments like this one, we are reminded of the true value of the work we are doing.

~What tip or piece of advice can you share with our reader today to empower them to SHINE?

One of our members, a young woman and Syrian refugee, just shared her story with us this past week. In it, after explaining her escape during air strikes, she says, “I heard once that some people fear the fire, but others become the fire. I chose the second one.” We have two choices in how we approach challenges in our lives: to fear them or to take them on as opportunities for growth. In order to truly SHINE, we must have the courage to do the latter.
