March is National Women’s month and there’s no one else who knows how to empower women but women. These trending days of social media, you can see women fighting against each other, boasting who’s better than the other instead of lifting each other up.
Throughout history, we’ve been trying so hard to fit in the norm and make sure that our voices are heard and understood. Sometimes we give up, back down and let ourselves drown into the feelings of self-doubt and insecurity (happens to me all the time). I learned tough lessons last year and this year, I claim it!
