This is a story of inspiration, of what we can do when we want to and surround ourselves with people who believe in us.

It started out as a story of Margaret Caterisano, the costume designer at Furman University, who started to write plays during the pandemic. She submitted one of her plays to the SheNYC 2022 Summer Arts Festival and her play was selected as one of 9 out of over 300 submissions to be produced.

The episode recounts the journey, some of the challenges and lessons learned. It tells us how Margaret Oakes joined the cast 2 weeks before the production was to go live in NY.

As one might expect, there were some wonerful, inspiring lessons these two talented and brave women shared with us. Lessons of love and family. Lessons of stepping into challenges. Lessons of taking advantage of doors when they open.

Episode Takeaways:

1. "Buy the red jeep."

2. Set challenges for yourself

3. Feel like superwoman

4. "I can do anything."

Thanks so much for listening.
