WOTM 2 Featuring Angela Winfield
“…and I wanted to be a lawyer but I’d never seen anybody out there, practicing law that looked like me a blind, black woman.” ~Angela Winfield
When I think of the word fierce, words such as bold, intense, fiery, passionate, and, powerful come to mind. So it shouldn’t be a surprise when profiling blind/vision impaired women who fit this description I would choose those, who against all odds, prove that no matter life’s obstacles they face it with an enviable tenaciousness.
As a part of life’s circumstances, we all face trials and situations that can bring us to our knees or cause us to want to throw in the towel. Navigating a sighted world with blindness/vision impairment can be very challenging for many people but there are many who do this on a day-to-day basis with a grace and dignity that is nothing but inspirational. Angela Winfield is one of these women who not only has achieved success for herself but she then does what all of us should do and that is, she gives back.
“I help people get what they want out of life. I help them achieve success and experience happiness both personally and professionally. If you’re feeling stuck, unsatisfied or unfulfilled in your job or inability to find a job, I’m your gal. I’m a certified professional coach, motivational speaker, author and attorney.”
I urge you to visit Angela’s website at www.myblindfaith.com where you can hear her say in her own words how we can take steps to live a life we “absolutely love living.” Angela, who’s been featured in the Wall Street Journal, a contributing author to Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Power of Positive, voted a Super Lawyers’ Rising Star, and recognized as a Zeta Phi Beta Woman of Courage is a fellow peer advisor on www.visionaware.org. On VisionAware Angela shares with us the Four Master Keys to achieving what we want out of life.
“I’ve done it for myself and, now, it’s time for me to show others how to do it too. That’s why I started Blind Faith Enterprises LLC. I believe to get what you want out of life you have to move from self-consciousness to self-awareness. Regarding being and feeling beautiful, I believe the same holds true there. It comes from the inside out and then from the outside in.”
Angela is an excellent role model who is giving back by helping others make a positive change in their lives. Kudos to Angela Winfield one fierce woman!
“When I dare to be powerful– to use my strength in the service of my vision then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.” ~Audre Lorde
