As an influencer one of the things I want to do the most is empower women and young girls whenever l can. I think it’s important that our young women find and have mentors or someone they can look up to. Someone that will have a positive impact on their lives. This is so as well for older women too! So I decided to highlight a few women this week who have impacted the world as a whole. I didn’t list the obvious, and I must say there are a numerous amount of women who have done well and have made a significant contribution to the world. I will share with you a few.
