“There are opportunities even in the most difficult moments.”

-Wangari Maathai, Unbowed

I’ve been reading Unbowed by Wangari Maathai. I found her quite by accident when looking for a specific quote last week about connection. I have been so inspired by her story that I wanted to share her quotes all week. I learned that she was a pioneer in many ways in Kenya and in the world. She was born on April 1, 1940 (the same day as three other people I love) and lived until 2011. She was the first African woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. She did her undergraduate work in America as one of President Kennedy’s Airlift Students. I haven’t finished the book yet but from what I’ve read so far, I highly recommend it.

I hope we have a beautiful weekend.
