Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, announced this week that she would be stepping down as the leader of House Democrats after nearly 20 years in that role. At 82, she is hailed as the most powerful Democrat in the United States Congress and, and also the first woman to serve as Speaker of the House of Representatives.In her speech on Thursday she said, “the hour has come for a new generation to lead the Democratic caucus”.Pelosi has left a mark that should be emulated by the next generation to come.One lesson is the calmness she had amidst panic that stood out for many viewers. Her ability to think fast and respond timely.
Washington Post columnist Monica Hesse has branded her as “a striking study in professional composure under outrageous circumstances”, shows definition of a leader who leads with humanity. From her words, ‘From homemaker to House Speaker’, go beyond the poetic rhyme. They are a representation of a profound truth; it is possible to change your life, profession or work, your age notwithstanding.She proves that their is no time limit factor to one's success.Contrary to today's world and belief's about women ,Pelosi defines that one is never too old or young when it comes to pursuing dreams.She devoed her time to raising her family and dedicating time to public service.
