Women Moving Flint Forward Edition SNEAK PEEK

We are excited to launch a special edition of Courageous Woman Magazine, Women Moving Flint Forward Sponsored by the University of Michigan – Flint.

Flint, Michigan has gone through a lot in the last few years and we want to honor those that have remained standing through it all and have picked up their shovels and continued to plant and build. And those who strive to make a difference in the lives of others and in the Flint community.

We are honoring 45 exemplary women in this issue. Complimentary copies will be available in Flint, Michigan by October 10, 2018.

We’re so excited  about this issue, so we wanted to give you a sneak peek at it.

Here’s a peek at a few of the women featured in the Women Moving Flint Forward Special Edition. Stay tuned. There are 45 women featured!

Where Words and Heart Meet

Starting in 2013, I lead a progressive, empowering, and multi-cultural women’s support network titled, “I’m Not Built to Break!” We focus on “everything” that affects women.” My greatest joy is bringing hope to somebody else’s life.

“A city is no stronger than its women. As the women grow, so does the city!”

Amanda Felker

I am originally from London, England. I moved here in 1999. I don’t have an immediate family, apart from my husband, but this community and many people here have become my family. My radio career has given me the vehicle to get involved with many charities, from pink night (AS PINKIE ) for Hurley Medical Center, to DENIM AND DIAMONDS for the Wiess Advocacy, Snuggle sacks for the homeless, The Children’s Miracle Network and more, I feel this is home and I love living here.

“I live by Philippians 4:13: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” in order to help me to keep Flint Moving Forward.”
