This book will be discussed for many years to come and will inspire and motivate women of all sectors to reach beyond what they already know. The circumstances are different, the scenarios may be different, and where we live and how we live might be different, but we all have our voice … one voice. When we speak up for ourselves, we speak up for our sisters worldwide, as well. Sisters that we may never even meet can feel it as each act of empowerment creates a vibration to the world and to the cosmos that quietly encourages all of us to take our next step in bravery.”
