LESLIE HAWKINS & Babes Breaking Barriers
As an avid volunteer, I quickly noticed the vast array of barriers people face in their every day lives. These barriers come in many different shapes and sizes, and often present themselves at the least convenient times. After battling with anxiety and depression, I became aware of how hard it is to balance work, family, a social life, and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I became hyper aware of how many barriers and crutches I created for myself. I've always been very self-aware, but about a year ago I started on a life altering journey that has now led to the creation of this site. Babes Breaking Barriers was founded on my belief that you have to create the change you want to see in the world, and most importantly, in yourself! I love celebrating kick-ass women and encouraging women everywhere to max out on their potential, deconstruct any barriers in their way, and shoot well past the moon and the stars. I was sick of people telling me what to do, I was sick of blaming everyone BUT myself for what was going in wrong in my life. I decided to hop over to the driver’s seat and take control. I promised myself that I would never let anything or anyone stand in my way…not even myself.
