I read this woman's story and found it so inspiring that I had to share. Her name is Kalpana Saroj and she was born a Dalit or a member of India's untouchable lower castes. At 12 she was married off and had to be rescued from the abusive situation by her father. After a failed suicide attempt she decided to venture out on her own and take her chances in Mumbai where she went from tailor to business owner. YOU GO GIRL! :cheer2:
