"My initial relationship with GWTK arose entirely out of my personal desire to support Esperanza Academy. GWTK reminds me that when people work together for a cause, the benefits increase exponentially. I love the cause, and in spite of my characteristic independence, I love the sisterhood. I am thrilled to be working with and learning from these remarkable women. As Margaret Mead said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.
