Having 2 daughters myself, I firmly believe in the POWER and INFLUENCE of WOMEN. When it comes to food, fashion, politics and now, the flourishing IT industry, with our talent, passion and charm- WE ARE INFLUENCERS.
Early last week, I was invited to guest at Solar TV Daybreak’s Techie Tuesday. On my way there it just struck a chord within me- that it’s such a blessing to be able to reach out to others and inspire them, mainly the women of today, the younger generation, that’s the future of everything.
The interview went nicely, I then was able to share an angle that’s rarely highlighted: a woman in a male-dominated IT industry. It was such a great feeling to let everyone know that women can hold their own and make a difference. As intimidating and challenging as it may seem, it all boils down to having the heart and passion for what you love.
What I want is for every young woman out there to seek what they love and always be hungry. That hunger can translate onto bigger and better things unimaginable. But it is possible, a little luck and a lot of heart is the way to go.
As quoted by Tim Robbins: “You have to seize an opportunity when it presents itself” and in my humble opinion it pays for us women to always be prepared and ready to go all out when the time comes. We know what we want and we will get at it, it’s only a matter of time. I might go a bit 90’s on this but indeed girl power will always be a force to be reckoned with.
You go girl!
Do the unthinkable!
