With so many headlines about people behaving badly these days, we thought it was high time to shine a spotlight instead on women who actually deserve our attention—those who inspire and motivate us to work harder, think bigger, and live more fulfilling lives. The result: Health’s first annual Yes You Can! Awards.

Every winner embodies an unstoppable can-do spirit, whether they’re creating jobs for the unemployed, braving war zones, or even finding their hard-earned fairy-tale ending. Their stories are gratifying examples of the importance of positivity: believing that you really can achieve anything.
