I was thinking about international women's day and how to best celebrate it and what it means to me. As a mum of 2 sons and a sister of three brothers, i have always seen myself on equal footing with most men. However, i do definitely celebrate the importance of equality.
To celebrate this International women's day, i would like to shout out to some of my heros - both men and women who have had an impact on my life and business journey. Some of these women & men have really literally helped me, some have helped me by proxy but all of them have inspired me along the way.
|My mum, dentist & mother of four
|Elke de Wit from sustainable skincare brand 34.4
|Jenni from London Bike Kitchen
|Vanessa Belleau my old colleague from WGSN
|Perri Lewis, my old boss and co-founder of Mastered
