#WCW: Christi Paul
Christi Paul is an incredibly strong and talented woman, and (duh!) that is why she is my ‘Girl Crush Of The Week.’ Not only has she been an anchor and correspondent for HLN and CNN since 2003 (covering everything from President Obama’s 2nd Inauguration to Hurricane Sandy), she is also a best-selling author, charity co-founder and ambassador, former beauty queen, and singer.
In addition to her fantastic journalism work (and super cool stuff like singing the National Anthem for the Atlanta Braves & Cleveland Cavaliers, to name a few…), I’m inspired by Christi’s strength and tenacity to survive and succeed past some pretty intense times in her life. After enduring years of horrible emotional abuse in her marriage to her first husband, she broke the cycle, regained self-worth, and completely turned around her life. She is absolutely amazing.
My 3 takeaway lessons from the awesome Christi Paul:
1. Don’t let your hardships define you.
2. Continue the passions that fuel your soul, even if they’re not your main career.
3. It’s not important how many times you fall, what matters is that you get back up. Really.
Cheers to you Christi, my #WCW!
