TOP 5 QUOTES FROM #FEM20

 In honor of Feminist.com’s 20th Anniversary, the site hosted an empowering day-long conference to honor women’s leadership and empower the next generation of bold female voices. Thank you Girl Rising and the Harnisch Foundation for providing me with a scholarship to attend Feminist.com’s 20th Anniversary Event. I was inspired by so many incredible female leaders and below are the quotes that resonated with me the most:

“Just keep walking. Don’t become someone else.” – Dianne Cohler-Esses

“In the very worst moment, I found the treasure of my life.”- Chung Hyun Kyung discussing how her abduction during college led her to dive deeper in her faith and find her true passion.

“We have to learn how to dance with our differences … Not just coexist, but co-celebrate.” -Chung Hyun Kyung

“This is who I am and being who I am I have a lot to contribute to that narrative.” -Maria Ebrahimji

“Once you decide you’re willing to walk away from something, you’ve surmounted every obstacle after that.” -Maria Ebrahimji

Get it girl, because in the end we only regret the chances we didn’t take.

XOXO
