" Fearlessness is like a muscle. I know from my own life that the more I exercise it, the more natural it becomes to not let my fears run me. ” 

“ I think while all the mothers deal with feelings of guilt, working mothers are plagued by guilt on steroids. 

But you have to do what you dream of doing even while you're afraid. "

Arianna Huffington is a Greek American author, syndicated columnist, and occasional actress. She is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post and author of fifteen books. She was born to a journalist and management consultant Konstantinos and his wife Elli Stasinopoulos. Though she was close to her father, it was the relationship she shared with her mother that shaped her life.

Even during her formative years, she exhibited leadership skills for which she is still well-known. At 16 years of age, she moved to the United Kingdom to pursue her studies and enrolled in Girton College, Cambridge. During her college days, she joined the college debating society, Cambridge Union where she became the first foreign and third female president.

In 1972, she graduated with a master’s degree in Economics. After her graduation, she worked as a columnist, critic, and a television host. She also appeared in an edition of ‘Face the music’ along with Bernard Levin and began writing books taking editorial help from him.

She has been named to Time Magazine's list of the world’s 100 most influential people and the Forbes Most Powerful Women list. In 1974, with Random House, she published her first book, The Female Woman, which looks at and critiques certain trends in women's liberation movements. She followed that with the political-oriented work After Reason in 1980.

Huffington had a life long interest in spirituality. In her youth, she greatly explored the Rajneesh movement and later affiliated with John-Roger Hinkins Movement of Spiritual Awareness. In 1991, She published a self-help book titled “The Fourth instinct” outlining her view that people should rise above the three basic instincts of survival, power and sex to find their higher and better selves.

In 2005, Huffington launched the online site HuffingtonPost. In 2008, “The Observer” ranked the site as most powerful blog in the World.
