For inclusion to be part of our daily lives, we first need to start believing in ourselves and give love to ourselves, we are not able to give to others what we are not giving to our own selves. So, how can we give love and compassion to others if we are the first ones to be rude to ourselves? This is why I have been a DEI advocate across different countries, within my work environment and in my extended community, to empower more people to speak up and to live their best life by being true to who they are.
