I would like to admire Margaret Hamilton, As she was the person to lead the software development team for NASAs Apollo missions which lead to Eagle landing in 69' on the moon.
usually, if I admire a person, it's for the person they are, and not for the gender.
and there are a lot of women that are admirable in this world. I admire women who work outside as much as those who…
One of my favorite women leaders, that had significant impact on society and business is Admiral Grace Hopper.
Here is a link to wikipedia about her life; Admiral Grace Hopper
Many of her original ideas…
My wife. She earns a bit more than I do annually, but she has put herself through a lot of tough roles to get to the position she's in. I'm not as organized or analytical as she is on my best day. She's a better manager of people and of data. I wish I had more of her virtues and top skills.
Michelle O'Bama. Always taking the high road when the others made undue attacks. Sadly, I cannot think of another woman currently in the political spotlight that I could say I admire. I work in a small business that does not have a real hierarchy of management and staff, but I do work with several women that have a great work ethic and take pride in their results.
I've known Brenda Faithful for several years as a library branch manager and then library system director. She works very hard getting the libraries in her system what they need.
She has also been able to bring the libraries back into County government and make them an actual part of the county rather that some little afterthought that was better off ignored.
It's my mom. She grew up in a poor family and received limited education. But there is no limit to anyone for achieving the life goals. She did lots of self-learning and became a small business owner, which also provided job opportunities to our community. I admire her courage and persistence for the success and influence.
