People who inspire me

Day 4 of #30DayWritingChallenge. The Prompt is, write about someone who inspires you

I’m feeling neither inspired nor in an inspiring mood, blame the Thanksgiving food coma, so I’m giving myself permission to ramble on in this post. I’ll list a range of people who inspire me and a reason why.
  1. My late grandpa, Vaai Kolone is the most enduring example to me that you can achieve anything you put your mind to, no matter your circumstance or background. Hard work and humility will take you there. He built an empire using his hands and his brilliant mind. #Goals.
  2. My mother, obviously because she instilled the fear of God in me. Which remains to this day. 
  3. Oprah Winfrey. Richest woman of color. Articulate. Charity Queen. 
  4. Beyonce Knowles. Owner of empires. Ruler of legions of supporters and even more haters. The queen of being #unbothered in the face of crisis. 
  5. Manu Samoa 1991 Rugby World Cup Team. And the Fijian Rugby 7s Team that won Olympic Gold in Rio 2016. Grit. Guts. Pure Heart. Winning against the odds. Do they even make Manu Samoa teams like that any more?
