FELLOW WOMEN

‘To all my fellow women who have paved way for us and the generations to come, Thank you’

My fellow women,

how amazing that we are slowly trying to defy the odds. Starting from the most popular field, we recently had the first female commentator in the world cup, we have the first secretary general in FIFA. By the way, does it not make it sweeter that she’s from Africa? we have a few first female federation presidents now, country presidents, journalists in top companies and many more, we are very powerful and it’s even more amazing we are beautiful. How can we not show off? Am loving the campaigns that various organisations have promoted like the ‘me too’ campaign, gives us strength to speak up . We are putting to shame all those who never saw the power of women before. Football wise, we now have full time professional soccer teams just for women, so young girls dream on and continue this fight our great women have started, lets leave the legacy for others to learn and even do better. Not forgetting the mothers, the young women out there who must make unnecessary sacrifices to get where they want to get, I tell you , we are more intelligent, lets continue to even close this pay gap which we rightly deserve.

All this doesn’t mean we don’t need men, yes, we do, my plea is let’s work together in a world where we have the same opportunities to achieve success . let’s use our power which we have so we can conquer the world, the world is moving fast, and we have tried to move at the same pace. let’s walk this journey together, lets empower each other and aim for the top. Maybe one day a very big organisation shall have only female heads as bosses. For everyone out there be it a young women or man who dreams of a better world, lets start now and join this fight for equality and inclusion. Let’s live in a society that includes everyone. Not saying we are perfect and we should all forcefully be friends but let’s always try to forgive one another and to separate differences with the love for success. Let’s continue this fight and the only way is greatness

To all my fellow women who have paved way for us and the generations to come, Thank you
