March is Women’s History Month, a month set aside to honor women’s contributions to history, culture, and society. To kick it off, we asked current 3D Cloud by Marxent employees for quotes that inspire them. Read their responses below.
“Women belong in all places where decisions are being made.” – Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
“This quote reminds me every day why I am doing what I am doing. I need to stand my ground and speak my mind because I belong here, I matter, my gender doesn’t make me less. ” – Stephanie Van Tieghem, Digital Marketing Director
“How wonderful is it that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” – Anne Frank
“This quote reminds me that inspiration and empowerment know no gender. The positive difference I can make in the lives that cross my path will be impactful regardless of my gender, class, or race. I can be the difference I want to see in the world without limitations.” – Christina Brookfield, Corporate Controller
“We can be whatever we have the courage to be.” – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
“This quote reminds me that an obstacle is not always a dead end. Having courage and believing in yourself is the first step to making your dreams come true. I CAN be bold enough to want more than I thought was possible.” – Caroline Nelson, Social Media Producer
“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” – Helen Keller
“It teaches you to take life as it comes and step outside your comfort zone. If you don’t do that, life will be boring. Living by this motto has taught me to push through the fear of doing things (traveling solo, climbing mountains, changing jobs, etc) and see what’s on the other side. So far I haven’t been disappointed.” – Carolyn Westmoreland, Human Resources Associate
“The greatest danger to our future is apathy.” – Jane Goodall.
“I like this quote because sometimes I want to shut down when things get hard, painful, or scary. That’s not the way to be! You have to keep trying and looking for reasonable and kind solutions.” – Saundra Baughman, Senior Quality Assurance Analyst
“I feel like young girls are told that they have to be a princess and fragile. It’s bullshit. I identify much more with being a warrior—a fighter.” — Emma Watson
“I used to think I was fragile when I was younger, but as I got older, I learned just how strong I am. From standing up for myself, to changing jobs, and continually battling illnesses. I had to fight to be where I am today, and I will continue to fight for myself. I didn’t realize I had this strength, but it was always there, just waiting to blossom.” – Mackenzie Hartman, 3D Production Coordinator
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou
“This quote has been a favorite for many years. To me, it says we are carried through the emotions we create in others. Just as we only have one chance to make a good first impression, the spirit of our character is found in the sum of the way people feel about us. While we can never please every single person, we can always choose to be kind in how we present ourselves and our ideas.” – Tracey Stephenson, Senior Quality Assurance Analyst
“If you’re prepared and the opportunity comes up, it’s your good fortune to have been in the right place at the right time and to have been prepared for the job.” – Katherine Johnson, the first African-American woman to work as a NASA scientist
“I was inspired by the movie, “Hidden Figures” and the contributions of women (and women of color) in STEM fields, including Katherine Johnson. As I reflect on my career, I view it more like ‘climbing the lattice’ rather than a ladder. The combination of experiences and preparation, and being at the right place at the right time have certainly propelled me to new levels in my career! Each experience becomes a building block that leads to future opportunities, and nothing is ever wasted. My advice: don’t be afraid to take a new step to learn and grow exponentially!” – Laisha Daley, Head of Product Marketing
“Passion is Energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” – Oprah Winfrey
“This quote reminds me that you should enjoy the work that you do. Life is short and if you are not passionate about what you do, then you should find something different. I enjoy talking to candidates and the team and love it when I find people that are excited by what they do. Those are the team members I want to work with, as they will challenge and drive me to be better because their energy is contagious.” – Casey Spille, Director of People
