"Believing In Ourselves is a book of beautiful photos and compelling essays profiling thirty-five women who have succeeded in achieving extraordinary personal goals or overcoming significant hardships in their lives.
The women profiled are a diverse group, and the details of their success stories vary widely. Yet the stories all share the same fascinating plot twist: Even when faced with major obstacles along the way, each woman made a choice to become the person she wanted to be.
