GET TO KNOW YOUR CHAMPION
Bio: I’d describe my personality as talkative but at the same time reserved. I open up to people who know me or I feel comfortable around very easily. I’m trusting and slightly emotional but once I get to know you, you’d most likely be my best friend in a heartbeat! Occupation: Communications Manager. Studying: Honors in Communication. Fun facts: I have no feeling in my left thumb from a pear cutting accident, I am really good at Call of Duty and I am a superb baker.
Causes and initiatives I support: Tears Foundation - They help victims of sexual violence and rape Al Imdad foundation - I have actively participated in their charities for Arab countries where there is a refugee crisis and famine in countries like Syria, Lebanon, Palestine and Yemen.
What I hope to achieve as your #BlueRibbon Champion: I hope that by me sharing my stories and views with other females out there they can feel like they too have a voice and can be heard, seen and that there is always another female who is there for them.
What does feminism or woman empowerment mean to me: To me female empowerment is uplifting the women that surround me and creating a space within my own life and around me where females feel valued, strong and safe. It’s trying my best to support females in a crisis or those who need assistance and using my voice to advocate equality for all females and for those who can't do it themselves.
Favourite song: Can’t help falling in love by Elvis Presely
Dream destination: Tokyo, Japan
Knowing what I now know, I would tell my 14-year-old self: That it’s okay to not be liked by everyone and just because a guy tells you he loves you doesn’t mean it’s okay for him to treat you badly.
The one goal I wish to achieve: Moving to South Korea
