“Women speaking up for themselves and for those around them is the strongest force we have to change the world.”~ Melinda Gates
More quotes from Melinda:
“If you are successful, it is because somewhere, sometime, someone gave you a life or an idea that started you in the right direction. Remember also that you are indebted to life until you help some less fortunate person, just as you were helped.”
“A woman with a voice is by definition a strong woman. But the search to find that voice can be remarkably difficult.”
“Connect deeply with others. Our humanity is the one thing that we all have in common.”
Melinda Gates was born on August 15, 1964, in Dallas, Texas. She took a job at Microsoft Corporation in 1987 and married her boss, Bill Gates, in 1994. That year, she and her husband co-founded what was later to become the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. In 2006 she restructured the organization.
