This quote, be humble, be simple bring joy to others is said by st. Madeline Sophie of the religious of the sacred heart of Jesus. These words come from the women who founded the Sacred Heart School which my family and I attended. For me, her legacy of women’s education and concern for the marginalized is inspiring.
But it also reminds me of the important female role models in my life. My teachers, my nun, my grandmother, and my mother whom I look up to most. For these reasons, I chose to honor her words on the front page.
