“Onawah.”

The frail voice uttering her Apache name sent her mind careening, bouncing off memories to hot, dusty days at her grandparent’s Trading Post. As a teenager desperate to leave, University provided a stepping stone on the path a new life. Hard work led to Cupertino, California, her bright eyes focused on success. She never looked back.

Still grieving her grandfather, Onawah surveyed the Trading Post ravaged by the plagues of recessions, high gas prices, and indifference. Drawing on the strength of her ancestors and a well-used Marketing Degree,  she built a new Trading Post.

And she never looked back.

100 words

Note – Onawah is an Apache name that means Bright Eyed One
