Equality & Empowerment for Women
My mother is a super hero. Besides the fact that she too was born in a developing nation with meager ends, my mother had me – and I was a handful. Having endured such struggles as the first born with 14 siblings, my mother made her way to America with my father and would be met with a new struggle as a woman. She had three challenges - black, foreign and female. However, without complaint she moved mountains and managed to raise my sister and I while supporting my Dad’s education and reached the highest position in administration at University of Cincinnati.
She is such a powerful person to me and an example to my sister. In respect for her and love for my sister, and all women who still endure inequality globally, I support the organizations below who strive to empower women. To empower women is to further define freedom, compassion and peace in our modern society.
