Last night… Let me tell you about last night. I had the honor of being invited to attend the swearing in of San Diego’s District Attorney, Summer Stephan.
Summer is extended family to me, so I’ve had the privilege of knowing her most of my life. I know the family side of Summer well, but to be sitting in the front row with a thousand-other people watching her get sworn in in front of press, high level executives, politicians, and many public figures was noteworthy.
The level of respect, kindness, and excitement in the room was overflowing. To see firsthand how proud not only our family was, but the community was for Summer was humbling.
Speakers had the kindest things to say about Summer. From how fierce she is, to how personable and loving she is. I learned she is so much more than ‘Summer the DA’ or even ‘Summer as a mom’, she is a force. God put this woman on this Earth to lead, to bring good to the World, make a positive impact, and to be the voice for so many who are not heard.
I spend my days encouraging others through mentorship, kindness, and being available for those who need support, so to be surrounded by such greatness was an honor. Having the opportunity to celebrate Summer and her accomplishment was a moment in my life I will truly never forget. Last night made an impression on me and if I wasn’t ready before to conquer 2019, then I sure am now. Watch out 2019, I’m coming for you!
