We can point outside of ourselves and blame the media, or lack of family support growing up, and while these are contributing factors, it’s our internal barriers that stand in the way of our happiness. It’s time to take back our power and stop defining ourselves by what we accomplish and achieve externally.

Maria was fantastic. This topic is of the UTMOST importance for women, as we tend to take on all the leadership roles and the extra stress without managing ourselves. You MUST bring her back next year!!!!

When you have a student specifically mention that as a result of Maria’s keynote she is now going to pursue her ‘dream job’, having previously felt she wasn’t pretty enough or good enough, you can’t help but know that Maria had made a big impact.

Maria recently came to College of DuPage to deliver her keynote, “Get #PerfectlyImperfect and Lead!” at our very first Women’s Leadership Summit. Maria’s expertise on the topic and personal experience connected with students and made for a wonderfully engaging lecture. This is a critical program and Maria is one of the few female keynotes on the scene. She is fabulous as part of Women’s History Month, but would also be great anytime during the year.
