“Women manifest their femininity and womanhood in diverse and unique ways. For me, womanhood is a magical gift that allows me to tap into a tremendous inner power, fortitude, and resilience to face any challenge. It is the beautiful embodiment of strength, vulnerability and compassion that brings much needed balance to the world – we bring forth life, nurture generations and build nations. Being a woman means taking up space, allowing my voice to be heard and speaking out in the face of injustice and oppression. I have a responsibility to myself and others to stand up for what I believe in and to never shrink away to make others feel comfortable. Being a woman is sisterhood, solidarity, encouragement, empowerment and leaving a positive legacy for the next generation. It is using my own success to inspire others and supporting others along their journeys wherever I can.”
