The Inspiring Women Conference in Lloydminster brought together women to share their stories of support and success.
One of the stories shared was Chelsea Steinley’s on Tuesday afternoon. Steinley, 32, is a mom of two, a full-time student and athlete who made the decision to go back to school last year.
Steinley was part of a panel of three local women who each shared their stories. The theme for Steinley talk was to get out of your comfort zone and experience new things.
“Sometimes you don’t even realize that an opportunity that’s come across your pathway might be something you’ll enjoy. I think to take the time to reflect on it and see if it is something worth exploring.”
Steinley is in her second year of college at Lakeland and is taking all the courses in the university transfer program so that she can complete her Bachelor of Education at the University of Saskatoon. She says that there are struggles to juggle it all, but her support system in Lloydminster has been the reason for her success.
“If you can be part of somebody else’s support system and give them time to explore something new that will help them grow. I think that’s really important and I’ve been given that so much in my life and I think that’s what drew me to teaching.”
Steinley says the conference is all about reminding each other the support given to each other’s dreams and goals is what allows people to do wonderful things.
