Celebrating some strong and phenomenal women shaping the fashion and beauty industry of the continent, Schick Magazine asked them what makes them powerful.
This is what they had to say;
Knowing who I am, where I come from, with clarity on who I wish to be and where I am going, gives me such freedom. It’s exhilarating and helps me find solutions to whatever I have to face. Belief in myself, the joy and privilege to significantly impact the lives of those who cross my path makes me feel empowered. Knowing that I have a strong network of support from my husband, children, family and colleagues at work, reminds me that I am never alone. Being made in the image and likeness of God makes me feel powerful.
I feel empowered by the sheer enormity of untapped potential in the industry, that’s so glaring to me. I am so passionate about bringing these potentials to life, using the talents that the Almighty God has bestowed upon me.
Being in a position to make a meaningful impact and drive change. Also having an audience to push a point of view that has the potential to make us individually and collectively fulfilled and powerful. Having a team who believes in you and your vision and are ready to go on a rocky ride with you makes me feel empowered.
I feel powerful when I am able to influence people and empower them to pursue their purpose with precision, as well as clarity of vision. I feel powerful when I am able to guide others and leverage my network to help them soar. When I use my platform to showcase the outstanding talent of others and become a sponsor who provides the means through which people’s gifts are projected on multiple platforms, that also makes me powerful.
