As a strong woman, I’ve definitely held my ground through challenges and obstacles. But I wouldn’t label myself solely as a firebrand feminist. While I’m passionate about gender equality and empowerment, my identity goes beyond any one label. I believe in standing up for what’s right and advocating for equal opportunities for all, regardless of gender. It’s about being true to myself, standing firm in my beliefs, and using my voice to make a positive impact in the world.
