A Woman Should Get The Recognition That She Deserves!

Posted February 21, 2019 from United States

I did not realize how hard I was working to help my brothers and sisters in the community until I was approached by Ann E Dibble, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Community Legal Advocates of New York (CLA). I still remember this evening when Ms. Dibble announced that I will be honored as the "Advocate of the Year" at CLA's first annual gala.  I took some time to reflect on myself and to think about  this great opportunity because women's contribution are not always recognized in the society.

I always believe that a woman should get the recognition that she deserves. This way the new generation of women leaders will have some role models to follow as they grow up. 

(Berlotte Antoine will be honored by the Community Legal Advocates of New York (CLA) as the Advocate of the Year with The New York Civil Liberties Union - NYCLU - Nassau County Chapter as the Organization of the Year. For more information visit Community Legal Advocates of New York).

Hello, Berlotte!

Congratulations for being CLA's Advocate of the Year!

I agree that being seen and recognized are great motivations to work harder and it encourages other women to follow your example.:)
