Deborah Wright

For what in your life do you feel most grateful?
As women, we tend to put ourselves last. I have been married almost 16 years. When we married, life became about making a home for us, my career, and my husbands career. Then my daughter was born and of course life became all about her plus the above. I have just recently found that taking time for myself is important. This is a good habit all women should realize early in life. Doing something for yourself is as important as it is taking care of your family.


What is the biggest change you want to make in your life?
I worry about the future world my daughter will live in. Too often we hear about a school shooting or an active shooter situation. When we go to the movies I worry about sitting close to an exit, or if we attend a concert, is there somewhere we could seek shelter if we needed to. This is our way of life now and I refuse to stop living, but I admit I live with caution sometimes. I worry about what she will encounter in her lifetime.


What do you think is the best feeling in the world?
Well I must admitwe are a Disney family! We love all things Disney! Most vacations we travel to Walt Disney World. We have been 22 times! My daughter could be your own personal tour guide, as she knows the parks quite well! We even know Cinderella personally and have had some very special encounters! The royal treatment we receive there is enough reason to keep returning time after time!


What was the single, best realization you have ever had?
I love that with my age, comes confidence and being comfortable with who I am. When I was young, I worried what others thought of me or what I needed to do to impress others. With maturity and age, the need for that has gone away. I have learned to love who I am and strive to be the best version of myself every day! In turn, this has made me a much happier person! My goal is to instill this in my daughter, as well as the children I work with in our schools every day.
