At She’s Trending, the people we interview inspire us to be better. Here are 3 dope quotes from women who are kicking butt and are not taking no for an answer.

Kelli Butler, A candidate for the Arizona State House of Representatives

“Get involved! We need more women and young people in leadership roles and in politics. On my campaign, we have an amazing group of talented young people, who are so smart and passionate and have so much energy. Most of them got involved because they want a better future for themselves and for others. They’ve realized that state policy will have a huge impact on their lives and they know that they’re making a difference by helping elect leaders who care about their futures.”

Sonal Kapoor, Founder of Rescue A Book

“Find something you’re interested in and stick with it. I did it and I was surprised at how rewarding it was, how the company expanded, and how I grew personally from the experience. I am able to do so many things I couldn’t do before this project, like speaking confidently to people. My interpersonal skills have grown so much and helping the community is just an added bonus.”

Jodi Low, Founder of You and Improved

“Invest in yourself continually, both your time and money. Attend trainings, sign up for workshops, read biographies of successful people, listen to CDs and podcasts. Never stop learning. Luckily, someone told me this early on, and it continues to be the best investment I’ve ever made.”
