I find an interest in strong women because ever since a young age I had stereotypes of women being weak, timid, and not assertive stuck in my brain. Society all around me was telling me how I should be. It wasn't until high school, even more so when I went to college, that I realized these stereotypes and how they affect women 
every day. Since then I have found in interest in exploring and celebrating women's strengths.
