Building peace in the minds of men and women

“Even today, women are often seen as weak. This is the same in both developing and more developed countries and for those women with a good education as well as for those women without.”
“My initiative focuses on promoting intercultural dialogue between young women in particular. Women share many of the same issues across cultures and it is so important to understand our common ground while also embracing our differences, in order to effectively tackle these issues.”

“It is so important to remember that every individual has power and every action counts. There are no limits to what a young woman can do – all we sometimes need is another young woman to inspire us and show us the path towards highlighting our own abilities.”
