“Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed. If I fail, no one will say, “She doesn’t have what it takes.” They will say, “ Women don’t have what it takes.”
I admire those women in this globe who has established a name penetrating all the obstacles and I respect those who are raising voice for their will power . They have proved a man is not the ultimate answer.
Once my mother told me,“Whatever you do, be different, if you’re different, you will stand out.”” and I can’t think of better advice for a daughter like me who has settled her dream palace in sky high.
I belong to India and I understand the price of fulfilling dreams in our country. Because traditionally role of an women in Indian society is a daughter, wife, housewife (homemaker), and mother. From our childhood we are taught to cook not to read, we are taught to sacrifice not to fight, we have voices but we cannot speak for us. And if luckily we get a chance to study that is because, you are not beautiful and you have to have something to get a well paid husband. And after your marriage, your graduation certificates become a vintage notebook.
I am sorry I won’t blame other and I have nothing to do with those educated nuisance mindsets. I want to talk to you today. Would you let the same happen to your daughter?? If No, then stand for yourself first. Because that little one gonna follow you. Don’t be educated with a view to marriage rather than to careers. You want to buy a dress of $100, go and it, want to visit Las Vegas go and buy a ticket. Make yourself capable of doing things at least for you. And yes, it won’t happen overnight. You have to have confidence in your ability, and then be tough enough to follow through.
I am glad that I am a daughter of a brave lady who teaches little ones in school and handles a home simultaneously. She set an example for her daughters.
There are thousands of opportunities in this globe for you, thousands of connections that are searching talent like you.Come out from the shell and grab them. If you can make food for your family, you can make it for the world too. Stop wearing your wishbone where your backbone ought to be.
