Barbra Streisand - A Powerful Woman on a Mission
By Nick Thomas
Barbra Streisand, 72, fulfilled her destiny many times over. The gift she was born with, that ‘voice’ has given this woman an amazing life journey. Her early years were supported by a Jewish upbringing, with a mother working in education and biological father who passed away shortly after Barbra was born.
Yet, many stand united in gratitude that even though she was riddled with stage fright, it did not stop her from sharing her gift with the world. The cover photo was especially attractive to this editor as it portrays the depth of Ms. Streisand. Intelligent yet demure, generous and articulate, striving for a better world and dedicated to supporting that with her influence and affluence.
Greetings from the Editor -
I have been a Barbra Streisand fan my entire adult life. Because of this, there was a bit of hesitation in sharing her story and not feeling confident in doing her justice.
Ms. Streisand has established and shared so much talent, money, influence, morals, dedication, sense of responsiblity, wisdom and truth over her lifetime. She has gained the respect of peers, the public, governments and industry professionals, she is the type of woman that other women wish to emulate.
Starting from modest beginnings and soaring to rock star status is a triumphant feat, couple that with an innate responsibility to give back and speak out continues to make her one of the most influential women in the world.
