inspired: Sarah Arata inspiration: Nicole Watson
Wife. Partner. Fashionista. Friend. Volunteer. These are just a few labels Nicole Watson wears out and about Chattanooga. The last label is what introduced the two of us and truly fueled our friendship. Nicole was president of Junior League of Chattanooga the year prior to my presidency, and I couldn’t be more grateful for a like-minded, strong-willed, and compassionate woman to follow.
For years Nicole has been pouring her heart out to various local nonprofits and inspiring everyone she meets along the way. Sometimes that inspiration is surpassing goals of monetary funds she helped raise; sometimes it’s the legal advice she does pro-bono. Most of the time, however, it is the eclectic, high-end fashion that leaves you feeling as if you’re in the front row of a runway at New York Fashion Week.
Nicole’s fearless attitude and unique style inspire me to push the boundaries not only in my career, but my wardrobe as well. I am inspired every day to be more and to do more in my life by her example, and the fact that she never stops believing in me. The world is a better, brighter, and more colorful place because of Nicole Watson, and I am grateful to call her a friend.
