You are your own leader!
Having been in the space of women's empowerment for quite sometime, I cannot stress more on the importance of #selfempowerment.
Empowerment is to transition from a state of powerlessness to that of having the power to choose, to voice, to claim rights, to be treated equal.
But even if such power is bestowed on someone, unless it is felt from within, the sense of power wouldn't sustain for very long, resulting in self-doubt and inadequacy and the need to fake it till you make it.
When there is self-empowerment, there is no longer waiting for people or society to change, there is no longer craving for appreciation, there is no longer disappointment, grudges, or anger...this is because you start taking #ownership and #action.
So no matter what the data shows, no matter how long it would take to achieve equality, work on empowering oneself!!
My keynote speeches centre around my inner theme of self-empowerment:
Challenges to Meaningful Changes
Grounding in Turbulent Times
Living a Productive life
Careers in Science- One on One Coaching:
With 20 plus years of experience in science in multiple careers such as academic and industry research, science communication and research administration, I provide career advice to young students aspiring for a career in science, early career scientists looking to transition into alternate science careers, and researchers looking to advance their careers/improve their performance.
Public Speaking For Scientists:
I help scientists share their stories and communicate their science better.
Coaching is a powerful tool that creates much self-awareness and clarity, allowing one to see the beacon of light even in the darkest of times. I have benefited from it personally as my life and career has gone through several transitions. Though each situation had presented unique challenges, in hindsight, they were hidden opportunities that helped me get closer to my true life purpose.
