Empowering and educating women plays a significant role in developing a nation. Can you imagine that kind of influence? Throughout history women have been the foundation and core of our societies, and yet they have been overlooked, undervalued and underestimated. We have been taught to make ourselves small, that we are limited by the roles defined for us, that being confident is boastful, that speaking up is being loud.
My mother used to braid my hair and tell me it was my crown because I am a Queen. I was told I could do anything; even though it might not be easy. Take up space and shine everywhere you go. The world needs your greatness. And while there will be roadblocks and ceilings, may we continue to unite to break the barriers in front of us, so that the women to come may shine more brightly. #brillanceforall@swarovski
