I feel extremely blessed to have Sarah in my corner and to be in hers.”

As a woman, you hear so many messages about what defines sisterhood. By living, you also learn that life experiences and circumstances are unique, and so are relationships. I do not have any biological sisters, but I am surrounded by a few women who have shown me what real sisterhood looks like, and none of it looks the same. Sarah is one of those women. 

Sarah and I met back in college, and our relationship was strengthened once we became sorority sisters. Immediately, her leadership characteristics set her apart, and she continues to lead while also being a lifelong learner. Through the ups and downs that we have experienced in life, our friendship has remained steady, and we have grown even closer with time. One of the things I love about Sarah is that I can depend on her sound reasoning when I feel overwhelmed and her celebratory cheers when I feel accomplished. We are riding the waves of life together, and the loyalty is true. I feel extremely blessed to have her in my corner and to be in hers.
