My Mission (Alicia Carr)
One of my life’s goal and mission is to EMPOWER women. I have learned that we are the same with our struggles and I don’t want to see color. I see women, and women all over the world are going through problems they shouldn’t have to whether its in tech or through life. I also see, as people, as women, we are one. When women struggle, we all struggle.
The team jumps in with the opinions about the how our diplomacy has changed under the Trump administration. With the North Korean / US summit completed, we're not sure what we got out of the summit as a nation. With a twist to presidential legacies, What do we feel about legacies with presidential people or performers? Also what will be next with Mike Pence and what will the democrats bring to the table for the next General elections and lets make room for women. Especially with the DNC still not organized enough to represent the people.
