Emily Sham: A spotlight on women's history

Hey there, friends! 👋 It's time to shine a spotlight on one of our incredible team members for Women's History Month! Meet Emily, a mom of two adorable kiddos, Taylor and Michael, and a devoted wife living the "coastie" life in Gulfport, MS for the past 7 years. When she's not jet-setting with her family, Emily's spreading joy and making a difference at the Red Cross.

Emily's favorite part of her role? Well, it's all about the people! From coworkers to volunteers and blood donors, she's found immense joy in connecting with everyone who walks through the doors. Emily's passion truly shines during blood drives, where she gets to meet and thank those who generously donate and give back to those in need. It's that sense of community and shared purpose that makes every day at the Red Cross feel special.

Now, let's dive into history! When asked about an inspiring female figure, Emily's eyes light up as she recalls her admiration for Princess Diana. As a devoted royal family follower, Emily has always been inspired by Diana's commitment to using her platform for positive change, especially her involvement with the Red Cross. Talk about royal philanthropy!

But it's not just historical figures who inspire Emily – it's her mom, the ultimate giver and role model. From instilling the value of hard work and kindness to demonstrating the importance of giving back, Emily's mom has shaped her into the compassionate woman she is today. It's no wonder Emily's heart is full of gratitude for her mom's guidance and support throughout the years.

As a female leader, Emily knows a thing or two about overcoming obstacles. But she takes Mae Jemison's wise words to heart, reminding herself and others to never limit their potential because of others' limited imaginations. It's a sentiment that resonates deeply during Women's History Month, celebrating the trailblazing women who've shattered stereotypes and paved the way for future generations.

And speaking of future generations, Emily has some sage advice for the next wave of women: Believe in yourself, embrace your strengths, and never be afraid to speak up and chase your dreams. Because when women lift each other up, incredible things happen!

But how does the Red Cross ensure that women's voices are heard? By championing diversity, equity, and inclusion every step of the way. From promoting diverse leadership to amplifying the voices of marginalized women, the Red Cross is committed to creating a world where every woman's voice matters.

So here's to Emily and all the amazing women making history – today and every day. Your strength, resilience, and compassion inspire us all. Cheers to Women's History Month! 🌟
