I do not consider women are improved than men. we trust both are only as capable. we wish women to know that they are means of doing what they want, assembly their goals and achieving their dreams if they are peaceful to take a risk and go for it.
This year’s thesis is “Vie for a Beautiful Cause”. What does gift meant to you?
It means giving intentional assistance and assistance, being unselfish and simply assisting someone in need. It can be a aged lady channel a road, a uncle offered hankie paper, or vouchsafing someone stay with we when they have nowhere to go.
I support HCSA Dayspring since they assistance singular relatives and teenage girls underneath duress.
I have been by tough teenage years, so this is something we can describe to.
And we would unequivocally adore to assistance these pleasing immature women who are watchful to freshness into adulthood.
Which successful vital chairman would we like to meet?

She promotes several causes, including conservation, preparation and women’s rights, and is many remarkable for her advocacy for refugees as a Special Envoy for a United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
As a open figure, she (embodies) both beauty and brains.
Who do we delight most?
My father is my hero.
He is a summary of selflessness and grit, as he sacrifices for a family and puts us initial no matter what.
He is a loyal gentleman, always holding a doorway for my mum, portion her food first, walking by a side of a highway where there is trade to defense us with his physique should anything happen.
He is a categorical masculine figure in my life and a masculine we adore most.
What is a biggest plea women face today?
The potion ceiling.
We are in a 21st century and (yet) we still have difficulty assembly adult to a ‘standards’ multitude has of us.
We are as means as a masculine counterparts, though a earning energy still pales in comparison even if we (hold) a same position.
