" Women have been silent for so long. Every woman has a voice but society has made us mute. Well, this is the time to rise; the feminine gender. We need women at all levels, including the top, to reshape the conversations and to make sure women voices are heard and heeded. I'm resilient and ready to defy all odds to achieve gender equality, SDG 5. Today, I want every woman to know that's she's unique and unstoppable. Feminism is not about making women stronger. Women are already strong. Its about changing the way society perceives this strength. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The woman you made
"The woman you made" project seeks to empower young girls from far and near. Lilian is working on an Instagram page to promote gender equality and will leverage whatsapp messages. The project empowerment quotes which will be an awaking call in their minds. I'll also share motivational stories. Whiles observing all covid 19 protocols, I'll visit school if i can, to speak to young ladies, mentor them and get them to trust that they can achieve all that they want in life. Given necessary support and funding, I'll help them learn out classroom skills to establish themselves. Within this short period, my project aims at touching lives.
