Today we celebrate Marina Medrano! YWCA Yakima is on a mission to empower women. #52women52weeks was created to celebrate and highlight the amazing women & #SHEros in the #yakimavalley. We are proud to share more about Marina..

What is one word that describes you perfectly?

What advice would you give to the next generation of female leaders?
Trust yourself and unapologetically adore all that you are.

What makes you happy?
Spending quality time with family and friends, working on my hobbies such as art and music, and reading and writing.

How do you measure success?
Sharing your most authentic self with the world is success to me.

What historical event inspires you the most?
There are various moments from history that inspire me, but most recently I was inspired by the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as the next associate justice of the Supreme Court.

What is your favorite quote and why?
“Just like moons and like suns, with the certainty of tides, just like hopes springing high, still I’ll rise.” – Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou is one of my favorite authors, and this quote is very powerful in its demonstration of resilience and strength in the face of adversity
