A variation on #femalefounderfriday - I’m now a contributor for Entrepreneur and my first article came out TODAY! It’s about how to to convince male investors to invest in your female-targeted product... so today’s #fff is for all the female founders trying to raise $$$ out there ❤️ (link in bio) Y’all, I heard “NO” so many times trying to write for a major publication, and it made me worry that my love for writing wasn’t enough - I seriously thought I’d never be a good enough writer to fulfill my journalistic dreams on this scale (it’s a very different type of writing than writing a book). I almost gave up on myself. But nothing feels quite as good as when you work for it for YEARS and finally achieve a “yes, this works for us.” Do not give up on yourself, even if a dream seems impossible. What’s meant to be for you is usually right around the corner.
We are so grateful and happy 😊 All 15 girls of Confident Children Out of Conflict Orphanage were sponsored with dignity kits by us and @begirlorg so we can keep them in school 🤗 Hello from @iammarimalek and the girls of CCC #juba#southsudan#nopadnoschool#herstory#herstoryperiod : : The government of South Sudan has identified education as a priority in its development plan. It has taken various policy and programmatic steps since it gained autonomy from Sudan in 2005 and independence in 2011 to increase school enrolment, including advancing the rights of girls to education. The 2008 Child Act and Transitional Constitution provide for the right to free and compulsory primary education. The Child Act also explicitly states that no girl can be expelled from school due to pregnancy and that young mothers must be allowed to continue their education. : : STAND #withsouthsudan#stand4education#girlseducation#menstruationmatters#womenhealth#womenempowerment#girlsjustwanttohavefunding 🙏🏿✌🏿❤️🇸🇸
