Now more than ever, as women we are challenging biases that have been held against us for so long. Growing up, before I knew what bias was, I was riddled with self-doubt because I was a girl who did not look like anyone in her classes. Consciously and subconsciously, my voice was being silenced because of my gender and cultural background. Today, I am still learning to find my voice and overcome the harmful messages ingrained in me. My hope is that young girls will not continue to face the same fate. In 2022, I want to encourage girls and women to tap into their power, recognize their value and place in this world and embrace rather than hide the things that make them different.
