Review on Lean In

I read the book Lean In: Women, Work, and The Will to Lead by Sheryl Sandberg(182pages) and it was a a very insightful book on her challenges to become who she is today. I liked that she was grasping the intention on how women should not just justify that we are women but to learn and experience failure or success and let that define us.

She gives a lot of life stories that I really enjoyed.  There are stories that go from personal to professional life. Sandberg is the Harvard-educated chief operating officer of Facebook and a feminist.

She is the prime example of a feminist to me. She talks about so many obstacles that she has faced and conquered. I really like how she expresses just because she’s a female doesn’t mean she’s going to let that define her. She has worked at Google and at Facebook.

All of the stories that she tells about her life gives me a type of determination to do whatever I feel like doing.

She also talks about being a good leader and not wanting you to feel like you can’t lead if you are a female. I know some women would think “I wouldn’t let me being a female make me think I can’t lead,” but she explains how in being an a high power over people would make you feel different. She also explains that even when you get that specific feeling that you should overcome it and not let anything get in your way.

“The ability to listen is a important as the ability to speak”

The quote above I think is very true because most people don’t LISTEN they wait to reply. She gives ways that has worked for her to help her get to the top and be a leader.




Today I would like to tell you about this new, amazing, great, terrific, crazy, and wildly creative subject– ME. I’m going to share with you 10 fun facts about this subject that is very helpful to know. After reading these facts you are going to want to keep coming back for more!

1.I am a college student that’s going to school to become a Physical Therapist Assistant PTA).

2.I’m forever wishing I lived in Miami.  Miami is where I plan to live after college and start my life after school. I’ve been on so many long and even one day trips to Miami that it isn’t even funny.

3.I L-O-V-E looooove the beach. If I could be anywhere in this world all the time it would be on a beach.  Preferably South Beach, Miami. I love the beach so much I have gotten a tattoo of waves going around my ankle.

4.I am a Florida State fan… I know most people hate them, but oh well. NOLE NATION!

How I look at people when they say they FSU is sorry.

5.The kind of music I listen to is fairly random.  I can go from J. Cole to Eric Church to Lin Manuel Miranda. J. Cole is by far my most favorite rapper. And I am highly in love with Lin Manuel Miranda’s Broadway musical, Hamilton. So yeah my music genres differ drastically.

6.I draw and paint. I love to draw and have just recently taken interest in painting.

7.I like to sit back and look at all of God’s beautiful creations. Sunsets and clouds are my most favorite thing to admire.

8.My family means the world to me and without them I don’t know how I could have made it this far. I enjoy going out with friends and spending time by myself, but I would much rather enjoy being with family. If I had plans I have planned weeks in advance and my family decides to have a random cookout I would cancel my plans in a heart beat for a cookout with my family.

9.I’ve just started getting into raves. I’ve been to EDC Orlando this past November and it was a great experience to go out and witness a different atmosphere. I plan on going to at least 1 a year.

10.I have always had a love for basketball. I have played in high school and it was probably the best days of my life. I had to best coach and my teammates were my best friends.
