Happy Woman’s Day

birdToday is the international women’s day. A big day for some, but for most of the world’s women, it is just a day like all others.

I have been preparing my speech for tonight. I am looking forward to meeting so many strong and engaging women. I will post the whole speech here later, but for now, I just thought I would post a small paragraph of what I want to talk about:

I want to jump out of this nest. I want to learn to fly. Perhaps I will fall and hit my head. Perhaps people will look at me and think I am weird. Perhaps I will never again be able to return to this nest. But how will I learn to fly if I never jump?
