“The best thing my dad taught me was that men and women are equal. That I could do anything I wanted to do. That I could be the very best at anything I worked hard for.
My mother passed when I was young, so Dad played both roles. There were no stereotypes of what a father or mother was supposed to be. My ambition, my drive, my competitiveness are all traits Dad embraces and encourages – I think he sees himself in me. This, probably accidental, feminism has allowed me to soar. And for that, I am forever thankful.”
