How do you support women globally other than through the different avenues you are involved in?

What drives you?

Honestly, I think as women just navigating this world on a daily basis with our struggles and coming out sane on the other side is enough to support and champion each other. I am a friend and supporter too many women who I meet along the way, to women who randomly email me, connect with me online, etc. Through simple endeavours like having coffee, saying something encouraging or just being a listening ear. Supporting women is very sexy these days but as women since time immemorial we have always supported each other and I do not think that will every change. I believe we are wired this way and it is a special gift we have with our capacity to love unconditionally, create and support life in a multitude of ways and generally just doing all that we do. I am also who I am because of all the women who support me. I would not be who I am today without the support of other women, so it is web of support and everyone encouraging each other along the way.

Purpose and passion drive me. I know who I am and what I want and I do what I like as often as possible, which makes me very happy. I have my off days like everyone else, after all I am just a mere mortal but I live 100% intuitively. My style is not for everybody as I am someone who literally lives breath to breath. I think life changes with each breath and as we inhale and exhale we never know what will come in or out as we flow along. I like being in that present moment, because this is where I am at my best. I flow like water, moving seamlessly not resisting but at the same time knowing that every step I take is going to lead me exactly where I need to be.

What do you do to relax and unwind? To relax and unwind, I go into nature. It always calms me! It could be as simple as taking my shoes off and standing barefoot in the grass or something more adventurous like going on a hike, cycling and the like.

I often hear women say that they do not always feel supported by other women, and I understand this and have been on the receiving end of malice myself but we must also recognise when other women are just not in the right place in their own lives and are not able to give us the support we need. We have
