There are opportunities even in the most difficult moments.

Wangari Maathai

In 2004, environmentalist and human rights activist Wangari Maathai achieved the historic distinction of becoming the first African woman to be honored with the Nobel Peace Prize. Maathai, who was also the first woman in East and Central Africa to earn a doctorate, received the award for her efforts in advancing democracy, peace, and sustainable development. In 1977, Maathai founded the Green Belt Movement, an environmental organization committed to supporting conservation and empowering communities. In her 2006 memoir, “Unbowed,” she reflects on the challenges of her life and how the rewarding path she ventured down after her divorce may not have been possible had she stayed married. Her poignant observation reminds us to look for the silver linings in the storm clouds of our own lives. Even during the most challenging times, there are still openings for positive redirection and personal growth to be found if we choose to look for them.
