You have more inside of YOU

Updated: Jul 9

Each and every one of us is born with an enormous amount of potential.

You were born with gifts, talents and abilities on the inside of you. I say as

the late Maya Angelou said


Every time you see me, I come as one but I stand as 10,000. I stand on the

shoulders of my mother, grandmother and her mother I stand on the

shoulders of every Neighbor that sacrificed for me, every friend that

supported me every teacher that sowed into me and every human being

that prayed for me loved me, lifted me and left a legacy for me. I stand on

their shoulders.


I’ve worked with amazing women who have suffered in the 20, 30 and 40

years of their lives. Who were abused at 7, raped at 12, beat and left for

dead at 14, pregnant at 16 and victims of domestic violence at 18. They

were broke and broken. But somebody said, broken crayons can still color.

You are not defined by what happened to you. You are defined by what is

on the inside of you!


As we celebrate Black History Month,


Inside of you is the billionaire mind of Oprah Winfrey

Inside of you is the bloodline of Dr. Charles Drew

The scientific hands of George Washington Carver

The courage of Rosa Parks

The persistence of Mary Mcleod Bethune

The voice of Marian Anderson

The advocacy of Maxine Waters

The leadership of Ursula Burns

The talent of LeBron James

The skill of Serena Williams

The love of GOD

You are more than you think.


Inside of you are the values and principles of hard work, humility, self-

reliance and respect for ALL people, kindness, empathy, faith and love


knowing that what is on the inside of you is worth fighting for.


Until next time, Be A Light

Dr. Deborah
