Words from the founder of She For She on the International Women’s Day 2018:
“Working with girls, providing them a product that can change their life, is the biggest gift the world could give me…”
However, the opportunities which came with this job is something I could never dream of – not even in my wildest dreams! Yesterday on Women’s Day, I was invited by the U.N. to give an inspirational speech about my work! I was so excited that I couldn’t control myself!
But all of this somehow have come full circle. I was talking to my mother the other day and we talked about what she wanted to be when she was younger. She wanted to be a police officer but she got married young and she never got the opportunity to make her dreams come true. I told her that although she herself didn’t get the opportunity to become an officer, she did make me, and now I’m making a product that will help to make sure that girls across Africa will make their dreams come true”.
Happy Women’s Day – Every day! ♡
