“One of the things I’ve learned along the way is that a person’s path to leadership is rarely planned out perfectly- it’s an experience that begins with a conviction to do something,”  So states Alyse Nelson. I am going to prove Alyse Nelson fits my definition of a hero. She fits my definition as a hero because she has helped many women around the world.  Alyse Nelson has some accomplishments that she has done, and she has many amazing facts to know about her early life.
