As a National Ambassador, I feel that I am aligned with the vision of Universal Women’s Network in that I want to create space for women to succeed and thrive. There is value in what women bring to the table and a need for them to feel supported and understood. If I can act as a mentor, peer, student to other women, sharing my knowledge and learning from theirs it creates a village of empowerment. Together we rise.
