2020 The Year of the Woman
An Internationally Acclaimed Voice for Women’s Empowerment & Education
Trent, from Zimbabwe, grew up in poverty where girls were not educated and yet a statue of her will stand in NYC among other Statues for Equality.
Against all odds Trent broke generational poverty, early marriage, and illiteracy.
Against all odds Trent got a GED after studying for eight years.
Against all odds Trent earned a spot in college in the United States.
Against all odds Trent, became Oprah’s “all-time favorite guest.”
Her book, The Awakened Woman-Remembering & Reigniting Our Sacred Dreams, is available in Audible and I will be listening to it tomorrow. I didn’t want to wait any longer before making this post.
You may also listen to numerous video interviews with Tererai Trent on YouTube. I encourage you to do so. Let’s let our girls and young ladies know their own potential. Let’s empower them and tell them they are capable of reaching their dreams.
