We're introducing the leaders in our Community each month here on the Bold Betties Blog. This month, we're thrilled to introduce Tamara Maddox, Chapter Leader for Bold Betties Columbia (Missouri)!
Today is international women’s day and I feel on fire with hope and strength because of a small start up company I found at just the right time. After three years in a new city I was losing hope of ever finding a community like the one I had back home. I used to run trail marathons, rock climb and camp EVERY WEEKEND. I was often teased for showing up to the gear shop I worked at with leaves still in my hair.
The Betties found me in my last term of college. That awkward point where you’re overqualified for half the jobs and under-qualified for the other half… I was feeling down on myself and insecure about my abilities for not landing the job. You know THE job. Ya, that one.
