Women Overcoming Career Obstacles

I'm Asking: What Have You Done to Make Yourself Proud?

I read an inspiring story about Debra Reed, president and CEO of San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) and Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) who came from a modest background and was the first in her family to go to college. Not only did she graduate from college — she kicked the intellectual butt of the male premed students at the University of Southern California. I love stories about successful, hard-working women and am curious to know what makes you proud of yourself. Most of us are too young to have moved up the ranks of big companies, but I want to hear about anything that makes you feel accomplished. Maybe you were an all-star student, you got a job that you thought was out of your league, or you're busy juggling a career and family. Brag in the comments below!
