“And one day she discovered that she was fierce, strong and full of fire and not even she could hold herself back because her passion burned brighter than her fears.”
(Calgary) – This quote by Mark Anthony perfectly sums up how unstoppable women are when they acknowledge their inner strength. When women come together they have the ability to be the most powerful creatures in the world. We build community, stand up for what we believe in, protect our young, empower our men and build better futures.
As women, we bring a soft, creative, nurturing and humanistic side to what are oftentimes difficult situations. When I was younger, I used to feel anxious about being surrounded by a group of women, I was intimidated and felt less than. It wasn’t until I was a bit older that I realized that women can be my biggest ally and not my worst enemy. Girls often compete whereas women empower, and this was the pivotal mindset shift that guided my journey into womanhood.
W.E.B Dubois said it so well, “there is no force equal to a woman determined to rise.” Having an all women team was never the plan and I would be lying if I said it doesn’t come with its challenges, however; I wouldn’t change it for the world. It has assisted my growth in becoming a stronger leader as I genuinely want to see the women on my team grow. Not only in their careers but also in their mental, emotional and physical well- being.
It continuously reminds me that through supporting each other and creating a healthy, authentic and passionate work environment we can truly accomplish anything, together. We laugh, we cry, we celebrate the good times and support one another through the challenges. Through proper stewardship and mentorship, we can all work to support one another. My team is my tribe and as women we rise.
