Amelia Rose Earhart



Meet Amelia Rose Earhart, who, inspired by her namesake—and growing up believing she was related to the American hero—recreated her flight path, flying a single-engined plane around the world, but it was not without its turbulence.

“The only plane that never experiences turbulence is the one that stays locked up in a hangar,” Amelia says. “And that’s not what planes were built to do. All this engineering…It was built so that we could take flight. …I feel the same way about people. We were built to stretch far beyond the limits that we’ve set for ourselves.” Amelia shares her story of rising above the turbulence to inspire others to pursue their dreams.

Andrea Joy Wenburg



Andrea Joy Wenburg was not taught to speak up. She sought credibility, empowerment. She attended seminary, hoping to find the best way to live, but left with more questions than answers.

But, with time, Andrea found empowerment. She found credibility. She found her voice.

Andrea has dedicated herself to helping other people to find their voices as well through her company, and podcast by the same name, Voice of Influence.

“If I help other people who are specialists find their voice and be able to use it, then I am affecting climate change, then I am affecting gender equality in the world, then I am affecting all these other things. And it’s not because I have a specialization in those things. It’s because I’m just supporting those who are doing the work.”
