Be You, Try Something New and Unite On International Women’s Day

A day for women to stand up and unite, a day for them to remind themselves that they do count and that they can do or be anything they want, a day to remind ourselves of everything women have done before us to achieve rights and equality. On this day I want to talk about and celebrate all of the amazing women I know or have recently met. Women who are inspiring, Continue reading “Be You, Try Something New and Unite On International Women’s Day”
