My message to women and girls is, GO FOR IT.
Decide what YOU want in life. Not what your parents want for you. Don’t just do what your teacher says you’ll be good at. Don’t just copy your best friend.
Really decide for you.
What are you passionate about? Find out and and go and follow that passion, where ever it may lead.
It doesn’t matter it its in a male dominated industry or not - you can be the first. You can go out there and break down those barriers. Kick them down, take a sledge hammer to them and do what you want to do. I want women to be confident in themselves and to stand up for what they believe it.
Don’t be afraid to promote yourself. Don’t be afraid to be bossy. Don’t be afraid of ambition. Don’t be afraid of being an alpha female. Don’t be afraid of being right. Don’t be afraid of competition. Don’t be afraid of standing out. Don’t be afraid of being the only women. Don’t be afraid of failure. Don’t be afraid of being wrong. Don’t be afraid of being the first women to do anything.
You CAN do, and be anything you want.
You just need to be the one to make it happen.
Don’t expect it just to happen, you have to put in the hours, you have to work hard, you have to be committed to achieving your dream.
Don’t expect anything to be handed to you. You’re the only one whose going to make it happen.
