Stories About Women We Look Up To

What women do you look up to? 

This month we are asking you to tell us about the woman you look up to. How did you meet? Why do you look up to her? Why should we know about her? 

Stories due September 21st. 

The Rules: 

  • Stories must be true and about you
  • Stories must stay between 500-3,000 words
  • Stories must be submitted with a bio and photo of the author


Natalie Very B. is a published Polish-Canadian illustrator and educator. Her artistic career is based on investigation of whimsical shapes of feminism in today’s world, as well as teaching creative skills to the youth. Her paintings reveal many Slavic folklore influences, while myths and legends are a constant source of inspiration whenever she creates a new body of work. Equality between sexes is a major issue in today’s society and a strong incentive for her to make illustrations that depict women as beautiful, empowered, and strong. Her artwork emanates wistful longing, tangible nostalgia, and exploration of the concept of “home” as a haunting visual element.
