What does International Women’s Day mean to you?
IWD to me is an opportunity to promote the successes of women in history and promote equality between sexes now and in the future, to ensure that women are presented with the same opportunities as men.
Which women are you inspired by?
Obviously the women in my family are an inspiration to me and have impacted my life hugely. I also think it is inspirational that our second female Prime Minister, Theresa May, is guiding Britain through such a crucial and hugely influential period.
What role or impact would you like to play in relation to women's rights, today?
After researching in detail about the violations which take place regarding women’s human rights, my aim is to learn more about how to assist women in less developed nations to gain their basic human rights, which in many cases at present they are denied.
What are your future aspirations?
In the future, my goal is to do volunteer work in less developed countries, working with women to increase female influence within society, and integrate them into the professional, working world.
