At a young age I was told I can do whatever I put my mind to,
So I made sure I always followed my goals and dreams.
I became an owner of a company that benefits others,
Giving back to society is what’s important to me.
This world is a tough place and I found where I fit in,
I knew that giving back to others was my passion.
I had to pay the price for my goals and dreams,
People always told me the world is just a cold place.
I was told that I can’t save the whole world,
That was never my intention, I just wanted to impact who I can.
There were so many passions that I had growing up,
Choosing one was something that would be hard to do.
I educated myself and my hard work paid off,
Becoming the owner of my own company a year ago.
In a tough business world, people are judgmental as it is,
I knew that being a woman would make it even harder.
Walking into business meetings with a bunch of men,
They never expect to see me walking into a conference room.
People see my name Terry as the CEO of the company,
And automatically think that it is a man who owns the company.
Until they go onto LinkedIn and see a woman’s face,
Then the mindsets change and the comments start coming.
Or what did she do to get to where she was.
No, there weren’t any illegal activities or sexual activities,
Why can’t a woman work hard enough to get to where she is?
Men aren’t asked these questions when they have a position of power,
So why do women have to deal with that on a consistent basis?
We get all of these stigmas and sexist comments coming from others,
When are we going to get to a place where we aren’t judged?
