Calling all Superheros!!!

I am collecting the stories of empowering women from around the world for a school project and I need your help!
My mission: To inspire young girls by showing them real role models
Your task: If you know a woman (including yourself) who you would like to nominate as a hero, role model, or inspiration please leave a comment below
- name your nominee
- briefly describe why you consider her a hero
- include an email address or facebook contact info for you and your nominee (with their permission)
I will use these stories to create an art project that I will share with my community and hopefully online.

Hi

I would like to be part of your story, coming from a developing country where opportunities are limited, spending over three years after high school as a farmer selling cabbages in our local market to now joining the biggest tech company in the world in their EU headquarters. I think my story would inspire someone.

My email address in cmuthambiri[at]gmail.com

Regards,

Caroline

Resource Exchange

Hi Hannah!

This sounds like a fantastic project. Have you posted it about it in the Resource Exchange? If you go to the "My Pulse" tab, you can select "Post a Need or Offer." Generally, the more information about yourself, your work, and your needs that you post, the more other women in the community feel compelled to connect with you and share their ideas and resources.

Best of luck!
Kate

Yup, I'm new too. I've found the Getting Started Guide and the Site Help/Frequently Asked Questions page to be pretty helpful.

Hello to you both! Please do not hesitate to ask other staff or volunteers any questions about using this site. The FAQ page is a good starting point for sure! I'm available for questions, and I'm sure Emily is too!

Thanks for taking such an active step in the community.
