Michal Ann is the woman who started #womenaremorethan, which should be enough to put her in this series (she’s thoughtful, innovative, and good with words). But she’s so much more than that. She’s a world traveler who has participated in archeological digs in Alaska, Greece, Dubai, and Ireland. She’s a blogger who writes passionately and articulately about theological feminism. She’s a survivor – she has the confidence of a woman who has never experienced hardship, but she’s honest about the ways life has gone very hard for her. She’s written a children’s book, she’s spent a month driving around Iceland, and she is so damn cool.
She’s one of my best friends. I admire her drive and ambition, her ferocious beliefs, and the way that she lets herself fall apart when necessary. She is my favorite person to travel with, she encourages my creativity and inspires me to do more, and she lets me be as awful as I need to be without ever condemning me.
Michal Ann is a powerhouse of a woman, and I am grateful to know her. She’s already changing the world, and I can’t wait to see what it looks like when she’s done.
