Female Wave of Change
“I joined Female Wave of Change because it’s a unique movement to support women’s brilliant ideas and actions in so many different fields that can have a positive return in our society. It’s also an ideal platform to collaborate with all genders to recover and transmit to new generations the importance of some basic values that seems to be globally forgotten.”
