Checking In

if I learned one thing this month, it’s that we all have different strengths and talents.

I’ve been training for months to run the Cellcom Marathon relay with my family — a challenge that has been on my bucket list. While I’ve always admired those that could run long distances with ease, I quickly discovered I’m not a natural. I’ll pass along the relay “baton” eventually but only because I’ve sweat through each training mile. My talents lie elsewhere.


One of the things I admire about the 11 amazing women on our cover this month is they not only understand where their strengths are, but they are also using these to better the community. They have the connections and the passion to make an impact. Just over a month ago, this group of women got together to charter an alumnae chapter of Delta Sigma Theta, a sorority dedicated to doing good.

As we start a new season, I challenge you to take a moment to assess the gifts you were given and make the most of these. And, push yourself out of your comfort zone once in a while — it feels amazing to accomplish something once thought out of reach!
