Heart On My Sleeve

Bravery has commenced.

I just emailed 7 high schools in our city offering my proposal for a leadership / mentorship program for high school girls led by your’s truly.


I do realize teachers and principals are all on vacation, but now is better than never.

For the last three years, I have been hoping and praying someone will come knocking on my door asking me to do this very thing. I have decided to stop standing at the door, peering through the peep hole, trying to see if someone is coming down the hall. These past few weeks I have thrown the door open and I am walking forward with a determined cadence.

It needed a name that a woman named Donloree could be proud of.

Yup, I named it something weird. What can I say? I like unique names!

Indelible Leadership helps girls create a legacy worth leaving.

You can’t do well until you know yourself well.

Knowing who you are, accepting it, and living it out changes everything.

Let’s hope at least one of them emails me back to come talk to them. I am feeling hopeful, excited, nervous, and happy.

Dreams become reality one idea, step, action, word, and connection at a time.

What door do you need to kick open? What deserves your determined cadence forward?

  1. Fantastic! I sure hope you emailed Bethany’s high school!

  2. I’m sure they will contact you because they would be crazy not to. You’re very inspiring and funny so I know they will listen and love what you have to say. Keeping you in my thoughts.

  3. Great idea, Donloree! Don’t be disappointed if you don’t receive any responses until at least August though as there may not be anyone in the school offices to receive and respond to emails this month. I would suggest following up with phone calls in the latter half of August if you don’t hear from them by then.
