This August, we celebrated 15 women making strides in their various fields and industries.
As leaders in their fields and the personal journeys they have been through, we believe they have valuable ideas/advice/insights that other women, especially younger girls can benefit from.
Moziak believes that as we celebrate the women that are inspiring, we need to consciously make the effort to bring others up with us or at least equip them with pearls of wisdom to guide them on their journey.
In light of this, we challenged the ladies we celebrated this month to share advice #ToTheGirls!
Enjoy these 15 powerful and motivating quotes!
