Trailblazers Impact Interviews

In TrailBlazers Impact Interviews, women and men share their struggles and secrets to success in stories about their journey. Some came from rough beginnings - but made it anyway. These stories make you realize it is possible to prevail even in the face of age or gender bias and/or racial discrimination and to blaze your own trail when there is no clear path ahead. If they can do it, so can you . . . by following their light . . . and then creating light for the person behind you.
