Below are some strong women that the UniversalGiving team chose to honor today!
From Pamela Hawley-CEO
Frances Blaisdell Williams was the first woman woodwind at Julliard School of Music in 1928. She was a pioneer for women and women flutists all over the world. Most importantly, she was my grandmother and one of my best friends.
My dear Oma, a pioneer woman flutist in the 1920s (read about her in the New York Times
) began teaching me flute at the age of 8. She was a profound influence on my life and was as phenomenal of a teacher as she was a performer. Read more here.
is a very strong woman. Anne was very young when she died. Under WWII, Jewish people were in a horrible situation, but Anne was very positive, hard-working, and never gave up.
From Lisa-Executive Assistant Intern
For International Women’s Day, I chose two of the most inspirational women in my life, while I had was lucky enough to have Christa as a coach and Taylor as a coach and a teammate, I consider them both to be some of my most helpful friends and mentors. Th
ese two women have taught me a lot about what it means to be strong and have helped me love who I am. I have strived to be the best athlete, friend, and person I can be because of them. I am so thankful for all they have shown me and done for me.
