Fierce Friday | Gloria Atanmo

What makes you a L I O N?

@glographics: “What I love about lions, is how they’re a symbol of strength and courage. When I leave this Earth, I want my legacy to reign with stories of hope and inspiration. That I succeeded not because of my circumstances, but in spite of them. How I never let the fear of the unknown intimidate me into downsizing the monstrosity of my dreams. Never the standard and always the exception, I’m learning how to own and embrace every last bit of that.”

What makes you H U M B L E?

@glographics: “Despite the last paragraph of virtually high-fiving myself, I maintain humility by being rooted in compassion. So much of the world’s problems could be solved if we just became more compassionate people. We hate and judge things because we lack an understanding of it. I stay rooted in my faith and beliefs that no one person is better than the next, and how we can each play a part in bettering this world by loving just a bit harder.”

You may see me share her content, you may follow her yourself (for the love of all things, I hope you do).

Gloria Atanmo is one of the spunkiest, sassiest, most hilarious and compassionate people I’ve been blessed enough to meet in my travels. She’s kind – like, genuinely kind. She seeks and speaks truth, and calls out falsehoods as she sees them. She sets an example for women all over this damn planet, and she has that tone that lets you know she’ll give you a good smack on the ass when ya need it, but she will follow it up with a hug to let you know she still cares. I’m thankful our paths crossed, and for the role model and mentor she has become in my life.

Gloria, your existence is admired and appreciated.
