I am big fan of Diana Nyad, the champion swimmer who refused to give up on her swim from Havana, Cuba to Key West, Florida. In 2013, at age 64 and after five attempts, she achieved her goal. It is never too late to be all that you can be.
Dee Dee Myers, who served as White House press secretary for President Bill Clinton, was the featured speaker at the University of South Florida's Women in Leadership & Philanthropy symposium in Tampa on October 24. Dee Dee was the first woman to hold the job in the White House, and one of the youngest. She regularly appears on TV and consulted on NBC's The West Wing.
