When we first started planning HerKentucky, we wanted to share the stories of as many Kentucky women as possible. Over the past two and a half years, we've told stories of professional success and personal triumph, stories of heartbreak, hard work, and happiness. In 2014, we're introducing a new feature called "Follow Your Dreams Friday", which will tell the stories of Kentucky women who are living life on their own terms. The women who've traded stressful and unfulfilling careers for happier lives. Mothers, artists, small business owners. Dreamers.
Every Friday, we'll share the story of someone we know who chose to follow her dreams. We hope these stories provide y'all with as much inspiration as they've given us. We welcome submissions to this series. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
