I'm so proud and feel unbelievably fortunate to have such inspiring and loving friends!! These girls are some of my favorite people and I'm so thankful to have been a part of this! Sharing my story and speaking alongside you all was incredible and overwhelming. It was an amazing day full of great opportunities and commendable people! I had the best time dancing, making new friends and reconnecting with old ones, learning about different organizations and initiatives, and grabbing lunch right after with some of my girls! Thank you to my family and friends who came out and supported me- You're the reason I'm able to do these things and having you there meant so much to me! To all of the lovely friends who couldn't make it- you were there in spirit!!
Congratulations to my friends- the hard-working and inspirational organizers: Jahaan Pittalwala, Emily Luba, Zoe Luba and Cara Mayer!
My heart is full! ♥
P.S. Latifa, I love you and I'm so happy to have you in my life. I'm proud to call you my friend, and know that our adventures have just begun!
P.S.S. An ENORMOUS THANK YOU to Victoria Chen and Melinda Mennie for providing knowledge, resources, and for being so passionate and supportive. Because of your hard work and dedication- I think I speak for many- I've learned and gained so much and have been connected to so many amazing and inspiring people, who I now happily call friends. What you do makes a gigantic difference! Thank you! ♥
