In a quiet library you can hear the birds chirping outside as I sat across from two female powerhouses of Maryland, Josie Mosqueda Thompson whose list of leadership roles can easily fill up a book and whose graphic design you have likely seen around the state, and @DiosaBorlaza, a commissioner for Governor Hogan and owner of DIOSA Inc that focuses on strategic marketing.

I was there to hear what their experience was like growing up as part of the minority and what lessons they wanted to share with their own children about living with confidence, a healthy self image, and self care. The Conversation became to applicable to every family, not just those of Asian descent. Transparent and empowering talks about bullying, self image, mental health and success principals filled our time together.
