“I support FWoC because I believe in women leadership. World over, women have been the backbone of communities, they are the glue that holds communities together. Therefore, I believe when we come together as women through FWoC, we can grab that seat at the table, the seat that we have been constantly denied and while at the seat we will impact across genders and generations.”
