This is me. I interview everyone in Interviews W/ Incredible Women and I care so much about this project. Sometimes people ask when I plan to write about myself, but I’ve always felt more comfortable asking the questions rather than answering them. I’m too ready to acknowledge that the sign of wisdom is knowing how little you know.
Interviews W/ Incredible Women @IWIWProject is a series of thoughtful interviews with women who have inspired me and the women who inspire them. This project is meant to get deep into the stories of incredible women – what inspires you? what empowers you? what brings you peace? where do you find joy? what is your story? I want to capture your authentic voice, the unbelievable profoundness is your normal life, and the connection that we have to each other.
This project is to celebrate the incredible stories of the every day women around us. It’s to delight in what makes us unique and to listen openly to what makes us different. Because “the woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before.” I want to know where you have been and I want to hear the wisdom you’ve discovered. At the end of the day, I want to help create a world where women are valued and celebrated for being incredible.
Amanda Oliver is a freelance writer and editor. She is so glad to have a part in the Interviews With Incredible Women Project. Learning more about these women and helping to put their knowledge, experience, and wisdom into writing is a greater venture than she ever could have imagined when she left her career as a librarian to pursue writing.
