I am..

I don't know how I feel about international women's day. I mean, sure, it empowers women. But yesterday was our day. Today is our day. Tomorrow is our day. Men too. Everyday is our day.

However, there's no denying that women still face oppression for purely being women. We still face inequality. And it's a shame because I know some pretty amazing women. Some who have achieved some incredible things but lack the confidence to share their glory. As women, we need to empower one another, encourage each other to strive and thrive. To be proud of who we are and know we are enough. 

The following is a list I've felt empowered to write as a result of watching a video on #IWD2017. I hope it empowers you to write or think of your own.

I am a woman.

I am a first class psychology graduate.

I am social work masters student.

I am a sister.

I am a friend.

I am a traveller.

I am a listener.

I am a sassy, red head.

I am a hard worker (so that I fund my shopping addiction).

I am fiercely independent.

I am an anorexia survivor.

I am a blogger.

I am a theatre performer.

Did I mention that I am a woman?
