"Women are leaders everywhere that you look. They take the risks in order to move forward. From the singleton to the housewife who manages her family and home. From the academic to the ‘University of Life’ participants. From the self employed to the salaried. Nations were built by strong women, powerful women of mind, body and spirit. We, as diaspora ladies, will continue to break down walls and defy stereotypes." Charlotte Cepal
