Go Ahead! EmpowerMe!


I’ve learned that fear limits you and your vision. It serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you. The journey is valuable, but believing in your talents, your abilities, and your self-worth can empower you to walk down an even brighter path. Transforming fear into freedom – how great is that? ~Soledad O’Brien

Our youth are learning that they have to empower themselves in order to be relevant to any type of struggle. We give them the tools and the opportunities. It’s amazing what we do at The C.A.R.E. Foundation. ~John Westly Stewart, CEO, The C.A.R.E. Foundation

And in my own life, in my own small way, I’ve tried to give back to this country that has given me so much. That’s why I left a job at a law firm for a career in public service, working to empower young people to volunteer in their communities. Because I believe that each of us – no matter what our age or background or walk of life – each of us has something to contribute to the life of this nation. ~Michelle Obama

As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others. ~Bill GatesFor my brothers it was easy to think about the future. They can be anything they want. But for me it was hard and for that reason I wanted to become educated and empower myself with knowledge. ~Malala Yousafzai

One of my core values is to help redefine what it means to be a strong and beautiful woman in the music and fashion worlds and to empower the wonderful things that make us unique. ~Janelle Monae

You have to enable and empower people to make decisions independent of you. As I’ve learned, each person on a team is an extension of your leadership; if they feel empowered by you they will magnify your power to lead. ~Tom Ridge
