“Every stride we make, every door we open, creates an opportunity that might not have been there before for another woman. Believe that you can, and hold onto that so tightly, as your belief in yourself has to be so much stronger than anything else including others’ opinions. And do it for you, not to prove anyone else wrong, but to prove yourself right.”
