To commemorate Women’s History Month, we asked several of our women teachers who was the woman who most influenced them and what is the hope they hold for women of the future. We talked with Kori Burkholder, Career Success and Creativity Coach and co-founder of VitaminR.
NY Open Center: Who is a woman who has influenced you in a major way?
Kori Burkholder: My Mom taught me from a very young age to believe in myself and the power of my dreams. She encouraged me to pursue my art, to go to college and earn a degree so I would always be able to support myself and to travel and see the world and to live my life to the fullest!
NY Open Center: Can you tell us a little bit about this person’s work and what it means to you?
Kori Burkholder: My mom was a stay-at-home mom, which I’m super thankful for. I always felt loved and supported. I know she made many sacrifices for my brother and me, and I will always be grateful to her for that. She gave us a strong foundation for our life’s journey.
NY Open Center: What is a piece of advice you would give, in retrospect, to your girl self?
Kori Burkholder: Believe in yourself, you can do it, keep going, you are already a success and working towards even greater success no matter where you might be along the way.
NY Open Center: What is a hope that you hold for the women of the future?
Kori Burkholder: To believe in the power of your dreams and to go for it because it’s needed in this world and by you pursuing it you’re making the world a better place.
