It's International Women's Day. 

we, women are ready to take over the world!

In conjunction with the International Women's Day, I am listing down a couple of women that inspires me and shape me into the person that I am today. 

The first woman that inspires me has to be my mum. I have a busy working mum. So, I don't spend as much time as I would've like with her since she spends half of the day at her office. Her weekdays routine : wakes up at dawn, cooks breakfast and lunch so that we can eat later ( we as in my sibs and I ), complete her 8 to 5 hours, cooks dinner, clean the house (do laundry, hoover the house etc) then finally, go to bed. I do try to help her as much as possible can but the fact that she has been doing the same exact shite for the past 25 years without getting tired of it just baffles my mind. I am very much inspired by her work ethic, dedication towards her family and perseverance. 

Next will be the one and only Malala Yousafzai. You probably heard about her. You probably never heard about her. She is an activist for right education especially female education. Here's a lil back story about Malala. She was born in Pakistan. When she was 11 or 12 years old, she wrote for BBC Urdu about her life during a fight for control at the place she was resided in between the Pakistani army and the Talibans. The Pakistani army managed to defeat the Talibans. 

However, a few years later, she was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman when she was on the bus, otw home from school. Did I mentioned that she was on the bus?! So after she was shot, she was sent to a local hospital. In order to live, she had to remove a part of her skull. She was then transferred to a hospital in Birmingham, United Kingdom. Although, she had been through a lot, her traumatising experiences did not stop her from going forward. She continues on fighting for girls to receive education and equality between boys and girls.

International Women's Day is a day where women's achievements are being celebrated. Days like these make me feel the most proud to be a female. Also, I'm so grateful and inspired to be able to witness this moment where women are absolutely bossing it and breaking the stereotype of what a woman "should" be like. I can't wait to tell my grandkids on what and how women from different parts the world went through to fight for gender equality.
