An inspirational woman is like a hero. Someone you know that wants you to strive and excel in life. Someone who will give you great advice for the future and that you can look up to. My inspirational woman of the week would have to be my mother. Now as cliche as it may be, a mother’s love is definitely irreplaceable.
