A Heroine of Mine

Anita Roddick was and still is an inspiration to me. She founded The Body Shop. There are copycats to her business, just look in your local mall, but they can not take what she had. She was an activist and a businesswoman second. When I think I cannot do something, I think of her and I get empowered and inspired. She valued diversity and culture. She would not lower her moral and ethical standards to make a buck, in fact, those qualities were the keys to her success. Anita, in heaven, I salute you.

i could really use a bottle of cucumber shampoo ;)
