The BE Project – In a world where you can be anything…. What will you be?

Meet Sabrina – her word for the 2023 BE Project is Conqueror

What word did you choose and why?


I chose the word Conqueror. I am climbing some really big mountains right now. I’m trying to figure out how to conquer those mountains while still balancing my family. It’s a one step at a time process. One day at a time, one step at a time, without everybody’s understanding or even support. But I am climbing. And I will conquer.

This year my word is Conqueror. There are some very steep mountains I’m facing in my health right now, and the only way I’m going to conquer them is by taking one step at a time, and facing one day at a time. My daughter’s adoption has finally been finalized, and that was a multi-year journey that we conquered together. I’m so thankful for that. Now it’s time for this new mountain, and it’s really scary at times – but we are moving forward. I’ve started placing new boundaries to protect myself, my family and my peace.  I’m deeply thankful for my Faith at a time like this. I know how it ends, and I know what comes next. So no matter what twists await me on this mountain, in the end I know it will be conquered. 




What is The BE Project?

Have you ever stopped to think about who or what you want to be?  Most often there is a word that drives you.  If you sit in the silence and really think about what type of person you want to be… there will be a word, sometimes more than one word, that will guide you along and push you to keep being a better version of yourself.  This photo project has become something that has touched my heart and hopefully those that have participated. I chose to shoot all of the images in black and white because I wanted the least amount of distractions.  Just the human and the word.   This project is the stories of some amazing people, their stories, and what these words mean to them.  Some have participated each of the 4 years we have done this, some are new each time.  It’s an amazing honor to follow along in their journey and document who they are becoming.

Want to read more stories from others in our community and their BE words?  Head over to the BE Project Page and read the stories of the amazing humans that have participated. 

I challenge you to find a word that resonates with you.  Who do you want to strive to be?  What word leads you day to day?  Join us in our project – what word will describe who you want to BE?
