For our last #WomanWednesday of the year, I present Cara. This wonderful human let me live with her in San Diego one summer and tried her darndest to crack my stereotypical midwesterner exterior. I'll admit, I had a lot of learning to do! Years later, I think back to that time and only wish I could have pestered her with more questions and thoughts. Hope you all have an amazing New Year and can't wait to show you all more inspiring women in 2018!

"Iā€™m strong because I always try to say 'and' instead of 'or'. I do my best to constantly ask questions and work towards a more just world. Iā€™m inspired by the idea that building and sustaining community is some of the most radical work that we can do, and that through learning how best to care for one another we can make this world a more loving and equitable place."
