To overcome insurmountable odds, Major Mary Jennings “MJ” Hegar said you just have to take things one step at a time.
Hegar, author of “Shoot Like a Girl,” told of one particularly harrowing story during her time served in Afghanistan and the lessons she learned about leadership and teamwork, and how those experiences are bringing about change in the world.
She said to bring about change, you have to first have credibility. It’s not enough just to be right, you have to be an example of who you’re advocating for, demonstrate you have the skills required and have experienced what you’re fighting for.
