Susan Morris- Member

From a young age, my mom instilled the belief that I was just as capable and intelligent as my brothers and male peers. That if being knowledgeable threatens them, let them be threatened and don’t hold back because I am more than a pretty face. She also did not encourage gender “norms” by encouraging me to play male dominated sports and activities in addition to taking ballet and gymnastics.
