Women of SmartyPants: What Empowers You?

by Liza Semenova

In honor of Women's History Month, we asked the women of Smartypants one very important question: What empowers you? Here's what they had to say.

I strongly believe empowered women empower women. I look at the women in my family and influential women in the media as role models.   These are women who are independent, confident, and unapologetically themselves. They are the people I aspire to be.
I am motivated by pushing myself to see how strong I truly am. My mom and sisters empower me to keep showing up and pushing through hard times and find the joy in daily life.
My mother is who motivates me from the moment I wake up to the minute I fall asleep. She is the strongest woman I know, having moved here from humble beginnings in Korea to start a family, career and make a home for all of us, it's truly remarkable how resilient, strong and graceful she is. She is a constant reminder to me of what I am capable of and how much I can accomplish.
Seeing my fellow women succeed or be represented in industries that typically did not include them in the past is a huge reminder to keep going.
My Family--both at home and at work!
My mom, the matriarch of our family, motivates and inspires me to be the greatest version of myself. She has always been the best role model to both me and my sister because she’s fierce, strong, smart, and has always taught us to never take no for an answer. Watching her dominate in all aspects of her life empowers me to do the same.

Empowerment can come in many forms! From our families, to seeing our fellow women success, inspiration is everywhere. As one SmartyPants team member said, empowered women empower women. And if we support one another, the sky's the limit!
