Meghan was not given a seat at the table. She was not invited to be seated there. And continuing with her quote, “…in some cases, where this is not a table available, they need to create their own table.”
Look who’s laughing, enjoying her life with her family. Look who’s winning in the unbiased media. Look who is landing accomplishment after accomplishment when the playing field is fair. Always know your worth.
Meghan’s critical thinking and ability to take a stand and say “no, that’s not right” didn’t develop in one day. This young girl had been nurtured and loved in a way that encouraged her to have an opinion, to have a voice, and to use it in a way that benefited more than herself.
Meghan’s work ethic impresses her most ardent supporters. They praise her for rolling up her sleeves and diving in whatever project is at hand.
She never took what she was blessed with for granted, wasting it on silly wishful endeavors. She also didn’t wait until she had such a public platform to do what was important to her.
Meghan has the success and access because of what she has accomplished, and she has acknowledged this power because it comes with responsibility to do more, be better.
Meghan started early as a pre-teen speaking up for positive change. She never stopped stepping up to speak out against inequality or injustice. Listen to her speech to the graduating class of 2020, at her alma mater.
We’re two people who are really happy and in love
“As a university graduate, I know the personal feeling of pride and excitement that comes with attending university,” she said. “I am also fully aware of the challenges of being able to afford this level of schooling for many people around the world—myself included. It was through scholarships, financial aid programs, and work-study where my earnings from a job on campus went directly towards my tuition…that I was able to attend university. And, without question, it was worth every effort.”
