Some people call me an idealist and borderline delusional optimist. Don’t get me wrong, I do not condone labelling people because I sincerely believe that they restrict and box one into a category. However, in this case I am quite happy to be called such…For I am thereby encouraged that there is growing awareness as I fiercely dream and pursue that which is right – Women and girls empowered to live and enjoy life!!! Environments made conducive for their growth and surplus opportunities for them to thrive. Women’s issues integrated into comprehensive national policies. Female leadership driving global agendas whether in the health, private, or business sectors.

Can you imagine a world where a significant risk factor for HIV, violence, maternal mortality, malnutrition, death etc…is NOT being born a girl…

TED a nonprofit that shares Big visions from true innovators in Technology, Entertainment, and Design, recently had the TEDWomen Conference in Washington D.C. Amazing women from all over the globe coming together to share their ideas, realities, and solutions on how to reshape the world. Check out what Hilary Clinton (U.S. Secretary of State) had to say on Empowering Girls – video.
