As the first woman to be elected Secretary of State of Ohio, Jennifer Brunner recognizes the importance of resilience. She’s also had to develop resilience in her personal life. “Resilience is a pathway to freedom. It builds strength. It requires courage and faith,” says Brunner.   

Brunner hopes that her accomplishment of being the first and only woman to be elected Secretary of State of Ohio will inspire others to believe that they, too, can achieve their goals and dreams. She hopes it will show young women and girls that they can be whatever and whomever they want to be. Brunner says, “With resilience, I have been able to persevere through trying times, learn from them, and emerge stronger and ready for the next challenge. With resilience, I know that I am whole within, no matter what happens to me or around me.”
