In line with the theme of the 10th anniversary of the International Day of the Girl “Our time is now-our rights, our future”, I would just like to explicitly announce to you that your time is now and you need to take your future in your hands. Limitations can only limit you if you pay attention to them. I want you to dream and burn with passion for seeing your dream become a reality. Globally, there are women represented in every industry in the world. Be it Transportation, Real Estate, Retail Trade, Hospitality, Mining, Manufacturing, Telecommunications, Banking and Finance, Technology, Health, Politics, Law Enforcement, Oil and Gas, Food Production, Fashion, Sports, Entertainment, and Politics. Do not shrink yourself or stifle the dream you have in your heart.

I want you to fill your consciousness and subconsciousness with the limitless possibilities that abound to you.

There is absolutely nothing you want to be that a woman who was once a girl has not prototyped. Focus on the achievements of women all over the world, embrace their stories, walk in their path, aspire to be like them, discipline yourself to get their results and in no time you will be celebrated for achieving great feats. You decide how far you can go and not your circumstances. I am cheering you on!
