A couple of months ago, I was invited to contribute and join the UN Women’s new digital campaign “I am (wo)man,” currently underway.
The campaign seeks to share simple stories of change due to women’s economic empowerment. The stories come from women and men from every walk of life and from nearly every country in the world.
It’s an honor to be featured this week on the UN Women’s site, and to contribute a bit of my story–my upbringing, how I ended up where I am today and what gave me the courage to leap from law to travel writing. You can also view my Facebook post.
Be sure to scroll the Empower Women’s Multimedia Center to read through all the other inspiring profiles from around the world, reflecting the importance of economic independence. You can also view them weekly on Facebook.
