     As the 2016 election nears, everyone is talking about Hillary and her run for the US presidency. From her recent New York Times bestselling memoir, Hard Choices, to news coverage, and magazine covers -- Hillary is a woman to be watched and read about.
     "Always aim high, work hard, and care deeply about what you believe in... And, when you're knocked down, get right back up and never listen to anyone who says you can't or shouldn't go on." --Hillary Rodham Clinton
     As a young girl growing up in the fifties, Hillary Diane Rodham had an unusual upbringing for the time-her parents told her, "You can do or be whatever you choose, as long as you're willing to work for it." Hillary took those words and ran. Whether it was campaigning at the age of thirteen in the 1964 presidential election, receiving a standing ovation and being featured in Life magazine as the first student commencement speaker at Wellesley, or graduating from Yale Law School -- she was always one to stand out from the pack. And that was only the beginning. From First Lady of the United States to the first female Senator of New York and most recently as the United States Secretary of State. An activist all her life, she has been devoted to health care reform, child care, and women's rights, among others.
