What does Women’s History Month mean to you and how do you celebrate?
It means empowering your girls with self-esteem and willpower to stand strong in what they believe and let them know it’s ok to use their voice for change. I celebrate by honoring other women reaching out and giving them their roses now.
How do you empower women in your life?
By listening to understand and providing feedback when asked. Honoring them daily and letting them know they are appreciated.
