I’ve always been afraid of heights and the water. And what do you do with fear? Grab it by its balls and crush it! But really now, we all know that’s so easy to say and so hard to do.
It took my years to overcome my fear. I had to do small progressive steps- First with zipline…
Next with parasailing…
And finally, a jump off a cliff (with a life vest on, of course).
The experience was scary, exhilarating and empowering. It’s when you push yourself and get out of your comfort zone that you realize what you can do as a person. You eventually learn not to limit yourself based on your age and more so, gender.
On March 25th 2017, celebrate the capability of women at the 2nd BDJ Women’s Summit entitled “Women Can. Women Will“.
To be held at the Samsung Hall, SM Aura Premier, the Women’s Summit will be highly interactive with engaging and thought-provoking discussions with an inspiring line-up of speakers. They will share their respective stories, advice, and insights on various topics and advocacies that will hopefully open your hearts and eyes, broaden your knowledge, and strengthen your can-do attitude with action-oriented goals.
