Why The Name “Pink Gazelle Productions”?
A gazelle is a medium-sized antelope found mainly in Africa and Asia. Known for their speed, grace and alertness, gazelles are beautiful animals that tend to always be on the move. In Morocco, ‘gazelle’ is also a term of endearment used by a man for a woman – which Maryanne discovered while traveling there with her friend, Terri, in 2001.
A pink gazelle, on the other hoof, is a positive way for a woman to perceive herself. To be a pink gazelle is to believe in one’s self, creative capabilities and a capacity to contribute significantly to society – in whatever way is authentic for her.
Being a pink gazelle means having the courage to pursue one’s dreams with passion, purpose and integrity – and having the patience to go through the process. A pink gazelle has a strong sense of self-worth and has learned, often the hard way, the importance of standing up for what she believes in…because if she doesn’t, who will?
For the full story on how Maryanne and Terri came up with the Pink Gazelle idea, you’ll have to read Maryanne’s book, A Widow’s Awakening, about the shenanigans that took place in the Sahara Desert!
