Actress Meghan Markle is best-known for her role as the overachiever paralegal, Rachel Zane, on the TV drama, Suits. She writes and curates the website, The Tig

Meghan says, "The Tig is a hub for the discerning palate - those with a hunger for food, travel, fashion & beauty. I wanted to create a space to share all of these loves, to invite friends to share theirs as well, and to be the breeding ground for ideas & excitement - - for an inspired lifestyle."

Last year this amazing actress and lifestyle leader was asked to present a speech at the United Nations after writing an article on The Tig on women's empowerment. She said, "As the UN Women Advocate for Political Participation & Leadership, I am proud to be behind a mission that empowers women to make their voices stronger, their influence bolder, and their support of one another unsurpassable."

Meghan is a champion for women to become leaders to change the world for the better. Everyone will benefit, men, women, and children. "We'll all win."
Take a peek at her message in this YouTube video.

You can become a leader too. Follow your dreams and become a world changer.

I finished writing a mystery novel, and I had eye surgery. And even that didn't ruin my summer, just slowed me down a bit using the computer.
