Has Madonna - her music, her life, her personality - changed or effected your life (now or when you were growing up), in a profound or inspirational way? Tell us about it!
My name is Marla, I'm a longtime Madonna fan, and I'm currently putting together a small anthology of approximately 101 inspirational stories written by women (and a few good men), detailing (in 500 words or less), how the pop icon known to us and the world as Madonna, has in some way (big or small) positively impacted the lives of the millions of women and men who've grown up living in her 'material world.'
Perhaps you lost your virginity while a song of hers was playing on the radio?
Perhaps you went through a tough breakup at a time when when she was going through one as well?
Perhaps you found inspiration or strength through her example?
Perhaps you found the courage to 'reinvent' you life, just like Madonna did....
