I agree, the lack of feeling connected as a women, with myself let alone other women. All of us women need to stand together, as your campaign has so beautifully done Amena ❤️ Is to begin breaking down the walls of stereotype and to begin re-building bridges. End of the day, we all feel and we all love. That should be the core of our interactions
I just had a hard night, where I felt that numbness and couldn’t understand what to do to make myself feel better. I woke up with the sinking feeling of this is how everyday is going to be forever. I came across your video and Amena what you have said inspired me and for the first time I felt a calm. I am enough for for me. It’s going to be a motto for me and I thank you for this little spark I felt today.
I’m literally in tears! Its so touching and true that we all cinnect with each other.
This made me cry! It is so touching and true.
