“I would say that the program showed me that even as a young woman, I can empower the whole community both young and old. It showed me that I can do big impactful things even though I am young. From the program itself, I learnt so much about different walks of life and it helped me picture how I wanted to present myself as a black woman, particularly in a working environment . It taught me how to be the best me to be honest and that I should have faith that I can overcome many obstacles by remaining vigilant and true to myself. Lastly, I really learnt the importance of a good support system, particularly a sisterhood like Sheisyou.”
