Being a woman is a constant reminder that I am more, I am capable of so much more, I can do anything as far as I can think it. Being a woman is a reminder that I have strength unlimited. Because you are a woman, you can overcome anything. Happy International Women’s day.
- Stacey Ugbeda – Administrative Officer/Finance
I am a woman, strong, beautiful, a force to be reckoned with, a woman of valour, blessed in all ramifications. Today I celebrate my essence.
Happy International Women’s Day!

International Women’s Day is an important celebration because it appreciates and spotlights the amazing works of women worldwide and by doing so enlightens the society on the impact of women in all fields as well as encourages young girls to see that they can be anything they want to be and should not be restricted/limited by gender.
This year’s theme is awesome because it opens the society to the need for an equal and balanced world. A balanced world is a better world and it is important that the scale is not tilted to the advantage or disadvantage of a gender.

International Women’s day to me is a day to remember women as we fight daily for equality in this men’s world that we live in. It’s a day to remember how special we are and work towards getting equal recognition.
