You Decide for Yourself what you want to become

Crazy what we settle for until we know we deserve better. Hopefully any hurt you’ve been through turns into stories of your resilience, courage, faith, strength of spirit, humor and not resentment. But ultimately that's your decision. You decide for yourself who you want to become Maryaam Hasnaa

The residential of the NiNa Young Leadership Programme comes to a close on Sunday with a graduation. This is always an event I look forward to just because the ladies have so much fun. It is in a new space which provides a new set of logistics and dynamics. It laready seems ore restricted but I refuse to put any limitations and stories on it before.

Pat, as usual, outdid herself in the planning of everything and for that I am so grateful, I know that it could not have happened without her assistance, dedication and patience!


Cheers to the young ladies who showed up!


What Did I Learn Today?

"When you are growing & living beyond the places that are familiar, you gotta be willing to do things that scares you. 
You gotta be willing to ask for help.
You gotta be willing to trust what you know.
You gotta be willing to believe"

Peace
