The life of women in my country requires strength, love and perseverance. Women and girls in my country are working hard to change the status quo, to get women educated, working and starting their own businesses. We have a long way to go, but hopefully we will get there.

I think this has allowed me to be a more independent person and be able to speak where I see injustice.
