We would like to influence or empower girls back home with the same mindset of believing in yourself and believing that you are capable of doing any change. I actually realized that any assumptions I have inside of my mind with regards to me not being able to do something, pursue an idea, is just something that I impose as a barrier on myself. They’re not true because I have not tried to actually execute my idea.
I’ve seen the mindset of change and believing in whatever idea you have no matter what, how small, that you believe that this idea is going to change the world, then you go for it.
