Awesome Woman of the Day for December 28th is Amanda (Mandy) Hiscocks. Her commitment, guts, integrity and focus inspire me. She has been an activist involved with environmental, poverty and social justice issues for most of her life. She works hard to build community and awareness, and lives by her principles in a way most people can't imagine. She fights for what she believes in, and is willing to face the consequences of her actions, not without a fight, but with full acceptance of whatever comes. I am honoured to consider her a friend.
