My Inner Chick’s Winning Submission!

 

—We chose a winner!

 

My Inner Chick’s team read and savored 74 submissions for our 2nd annual writing contest.

 

We valued and appreciated your raw words, honesty, authenticity, pain, and sharing your real-life, unbelievable, amazing stories with us.

 

What an honor to read all of them.

Without further ado, here it is.

 

Congrats, Reut!
