Great blog Ryan and excellent words of advice Bobbi. It is the inner strength and determination that makes a woman beautiful, and not what we physically see on the outside. Couple that with education, and there will be no stopping a woman from succeeding at whatever she sets her mind and heart to.

Hi Jill. It was great to find out more about Bobbi – especially how hard she has worked to get to where she is today. An incredible woman.

This is such an inspiring blog, especially coming from someone in the business of beauty. I had a discussion with my 15-year-old today about how beauty IS powerful. And it is our responsibility to use that power for good. Thank you, Bobbi, for reminding us that, as my grandmother used to say, “Pretty is as pretty does”!

I had a makeup session with Bobbi Brown once, and she is true to her word. We had a great time, and I found her work so inspiring, I’ve given all my nieces for their 13th birthday a Bobbi Brown makeover and a copy of her book. GWF, and the young women who attend, are so fortunate to have Bobbi’s words to live by. And, as these young women mature and become aware of the power of advertising, its even more important that they grab hold of each other’s hands and continue to rejoice and celebrate their own beauty and the beauty of their friends. I’m wishing for a new generation of girls where this less competition and more celebration!
