Happy International Women’s Day to all the smart, talented, ambitious, and strong women that surround me, starting with all of you.
I wouldn’t have been about to create Broke & Chic without the love, and continuous support of my readers. Thank You!
Below are my favorite tweets circulating the interwebz that will make you want to kick ass today…and always. Plus three women we have interviewed that are inspiring in more ways than one:

1. Melissa Murphy — Director of Marketing at RAPP
Straight out of college, Melissa landed a job working for Donald Trump in Miami, Florida as the Director of Communications for Trump Grande Resort. She then went on to be the Director of Communications for pop artist, Romero Britto at his Miami Beach gallery.

2. Carolina Alvo — Founder and CEO of Carolina Alvo
Did you know that half the population of women in the U.S. qualify as “petite” at 5’4” or under? Are you in disbelief? Is that because you’re thinking to yourself that if that were true, why do so many stores stock only “regular sizes” with petite departments being the afterthought, if there is one at all?
Petite entrepreneur and game-changer Carolina Alvo caught herself wondering the same thing, so she founded her eponymous clothing line, Carolina Alvo, and started a “Petite is Powerful” movement.

3. Jessica Romano — Founder and CEO of Glamour Dolls Makeup
I first met Jessica when we were both studying theatre at Montclair State. As students, she did makeup for the first show I ever directed. Since graduation, we’ve stayed in touch and have worked with each other professionally.
With her talent, training and undeniable presence, it was no surprise to me she rose to success on Style Network, and even less of a surprise that she came out with her own makeup line.

Thanks for sharing this and introducing me to a few more fantastic female role models.
Amy Poehler is high on my list. Her ability to balance personal success and level-headedness is admirable.
I also celebrate her creation of “Smart Girls” for young girls and women, and Knoptimism in general, “which holds that, for women, the work of self-advancement and the work of caring for others can and should coexist — not only in the same ideology, but in the same human being.”
