Rachel Goldberg, One Woman Makes a Difference 2016


Who is your biggest inspiration as a woman and why?

 Maya Angelou because of her activism and her wonderful talent and inspirational words.


If you could sum up your life philosophy is one sentence, what would it be?

I suppose there are two that stand out: "Never give up" and

"Losing family obliges us to find family, not the family of our birth

but the family of our life."   


What women's issue is most important to you?

It's difficult to identify a single issue so I will simply quote: “Human Rights are Women's Rights and Women's Rights are Human Rights.”


What has been your biggest professional hurdle as a woman and how did you overcome it?

Being accepted for who I am by refusing to be marginalized.


What is your favorite quote as a woman?

From Maya Angelou:

The caged bird sings with a fearful trill

of things unknown but longed for still

and his tune is heard on the distant hill

for the caged bird sings of freedom.


And a recent quote that moves me each time I hear or speak it:

"Love is Love is love is love is love..."
