It was the organizing meeting of our Larraine Segil Scholars Foundation (LSS)- but the third annual retreat of our group which has now grown to 20 women. How blessed I am that these exceptional women who walk the road less traveled are part of my life – and how blessed they are to be part of each others lives! They span in age from 16 ( our two South African High School Scholars who were not with us for this retreat but hopefully when they matriculate will be with us for our 2018 Holiday Party!) to 69 – and are unique multi talented women all of whom are dedicated to each other as well as to making a difference for women just like us in the present and future. They are lawyers, physicians – family medicine, OBGYN, Critical Care Internal Medicine, CEO’s of companies, Chief Human Resource Officers, COO’s, PhD’s, Business Executives in Health Care, Bio Tech, Entertainment, Cosmetics and Online Digital Services, Food industry, Beauty Products (wigs), Manufacturing and more. Our LSS have origins in many places – Alabama, Colorado,California, New York as well as Peru, Iran, South Africa, Mexico and South Korea. They bring diverse ethnicity, religions, perspectives, ages and personalities. Each one of this remarkable sisterhood holds a special place in my heart -and my commitment is to bring to benefit each of them every resource I have built during my lifetime- connections, wisdom, access to ideas and opportunities and more. I am their fairy godmother and my mission is to make their legacies and dreams come true with their hard work and involvement.
Here they are except for 5 who were out of the country, having babies or at board meetings!
