Leadership Talk CATHLEEN MEREDITH WRITER. INFLUENCER. IGNITOR. FATGIRLSDANCE™ What is your personal mission statement as a leader?

Ignitor of Possibility & Positivity. Writer of Underserved & Unheard Voices. Influencer of Powerful, Radical & Authentic Revolution.

Can you tell us about your current work and how it relates to confidence, self-love, and advocacy?

Most women—specifically women of color (WOC)—are educated, socialized, and conditioned to think of this world as limited. Expect nothing. Keep your head down, and that chip firmly planted on your shoulder. I enjoy lighting the fire of rebellion and revolution in women. I love teaching lessons on confidence, fearlessness, and power. I love explaining that not everyone is going to like it, but that's half the fun. I love changing the world through the arts: writing, dance, and spoken word. I love educating women that confidence and self-love are the strongest weapons in our toolkit against the patriarchy.
