Happy 20th Anniversary to SisterMentors! You have so much to celebrate! I have so much to be grateful for because of my participation in SisterMentors. It was really the relationships in my life that got me through the dissertation. I count Dr. Lewis, and the women in SisterMentors who I was surrounded by, among my most important cheerleaders. Because of SisterMentors, I have a toolbox of self-care skills. Community, healthy food, yoga, meditation, etc. are all the things that I will turn to. SisterMentors has given me and repeatedly reinforced these important gifts to help me to flourish. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
