And I got to check something off my bucket list by meeting Admiral Michelle Howard, the first woman to earn a 4-star rank in the U.S. Navy. Admiral Howard and our other female Navy leaders are powerful proof to girls and women everywhere that they can be anything they want to be.
My gratitude to these amazing leaders for their current and future service to our nation – and for inspiring me.”
