I was born a lucky girl. I was born in an age full of empowered women. I was born empowered.
I grew up beating boys in school and sometimes physically. In a highly patriachal society, that’s very empowering for a girl.
Especialy beating the odds and the stereotypes that girls from the hood never get to high school or college. They just get knocked up , get married or worse.
I not only made it to highschool but a great one as a matter of fact. And now in college. Beating boys, beating the odds, not conforming to stereotypes and breaking the system and shocking society.
I was empowered through education and taught from a young age that I can do anything I put my mind to. My parents playing the biggest role here, telling me not to be intimidated by boys and a wide sea of empowered women out there to look up to. Brave women who are unafraid to claim their large portion of pie from a highly male populated high table. These are the women paving the way for the younger generation. Creating more space on that high table for more of us to come claim our portion of that delicious pie.
We have come a long way in the search for equality and rights that support us. We celebrate the women and men who helped us get here and those making incredible milestones in the world. These brave, strong, smart, fearless, bold, beautiful, sexy, classy, kind, sweet and thoughtful women are who we celebrate today and every 8th of March.
We know these women ; our mothers, sisters, daughters, cousins, aunts, grandmothers, girlfriends, wives, collegues, leaders, neighbors, us. These women will help change the world and make it a better place one day.
Celebrate a woman today❤
Happy International Women’s Day ladies and gents 😉
