Leslie Carol Botha
Social Media Consultant
Thank you, Leslie for inspiring weekly posts on our social media.
I have supported Patti Smith and her project Her Legacy Women of Fort Collins since its inception. The importance of honoring the contributions women have made to our community cannot and must not be underestimated. Even though the Legacy project highlights a limited number of women who were and continue to be the backbone of our community, the project opens the door to understanding the vast contributions, valor and efforts women have made in the past, present and hopefully into the future.
Artist/Artistic Director/Portrait Artist
Rachael is a previous Zonta Club Member and has partnered with LHL since early 2014 to create the concept and art process for this project. Rachel holds an MFA (Masters of Fine Art) degree from CSU. We wouldn't be where we are today without Rachel's artistic guidance.
"I am a thriving single mom, artist, and educator because of the strong and fearless women in my life who have mentored me. Living Her Legacy provides that same connection for the community. The women honored in these fine art prints transform into role models and living stories that are relatable and affirm all that is possible when one believes in themselves and embraces their dreams."
