“You can always tell who the strong women are. They are the ones you see building each other up, instead of tearing each other down.” This quote is a good reminder that it’s not enough to only focus on becoming your most authentic self but that we also have to help each other become strong, confident and intelligent women that can rule the world. Together we are stronger.
