I feel when something is meant to be it will find a way. It might not take a course that is simple and straight forward yet upon reflection at the end, it all makes sense how it came to be.
As an independent woman, the intention of my blogs is to facilitate connection between people through the exposure of my writings.
Every time I push myself there is elevation I cannot possibly imagine on the other side and this is how I would find myself a member of The Dirty Devils Rodettes.
We would then exchange social media contacts realizing we would continue to cross paths as we were attending the same events and shows.
I recognized their authentic support and realized the opportunity we could create.
These two were already founding members of the female chapter of the Dirty Devils Rat Rod Car Club, the Dirty Devils Rodettes and now they invited me to participate with them during the Ladysmith show.
Their hospitality and welcomeness made me feel truly apart of their family.
By the end of that show my personal history was made. I was officially included with the group, social media was made and we started creating plans to develop ideas.
What I noticed about this group is the genuine efforts to support each other and to support the community with sincere enthusiasm which is motivating and refreshing.
I have longed to be apart of a group that can inspire and draw attention to important causes and the best part is that these woman felt like I was coming home.
These are my sisters, my girl gang, my squad and my tribe. The possibilities are endless to what will happen when we are together.
