A Community Project to honour women who have enriched our lives

The Ban Righ Centre supports mature women who are starting or returning to education at Queen’s University. In taking this significant step, these women found role models, advocates and inspiration in other women. Then, as they engage in their studies and in their activities beyond Queen’s with friends, family, peers and colleagues, these students effect continual and positive change, extending the reach of their mentors and the Ban Righ Centre. Through “Who Is She?” we honour women who make a difference.

Mother, friend, subtle advisor, role model, nature lover. You have taught me that laughter is great medicine; that most people don’t read minds, so communication, while challenging, is a good idea; that nature calms, that we are all capable of more; that everyone should have something red in their wardrobe (especially shoes); that how we respond to things is more important than the thing itself; that everyone matters and that balance and moderation are desirable goals, that a cheese sandwich with mustard and an apple is an adequate lunch! (though I’m still not convinced).

And most importantly, that when all is said and done, we have each other.
I love you mom…”Schmoozie”. You have done more for me than you know and than sometimes I let on!
