The Moment I Knew: Essay Contest Winners

In anticipation of our 'Moment I Knew' Meetup events in Los Angeles and New York City--and all throughout the country, through Meetup.com--we partnered with SheWrites.com to solicit essay submissions for our contest. Two readers--one in Los Angeles, and the other in New York--were chosen to read their essays at our events, but other fantastic submissions warranted publication as well. Below, our contest winners.
