Today's essay is by Dr. Martha (Marty) Muguira, an inspirational and transformative leader, LMR 2004 graduate, alumna of William & Mary, former Executive Officer and Board member for several non-profit and business organizations in Virginia, university professor, and therapist. Dealing with terminal illness since 2006, she applies her beliefs to her situation, inspiring others to experience the richness of life in all aspects. WCVE Public Radio, in partnership with Leadership Metro Richmond, brings you This I Believe -- in which LMR members reflect and share personal thoughts based on values and beliefs that help to shape our lives, community and society.
Leadership Metro Richmond is a community leadership organization designed to connect and inspire leaders in our region. This I Believe is an international organization engaging people in writing and sharing essays describing the core values that guide their daily lives.
