Happy #IWD2016!

It was a privilege and an honor to speak for an altogether amazing group of female entrepreneurs visiting Washington DC as part of #10KWomen initiative (a US Department of State Entrepreneurship Program for Women in the Middle East). To say that this is an inspiring group is to describe a shadow of the impression they make. I’m astonished and humbled by their spirit and strength.

I have also learned , in a small measure, just how much they overcame in order to be where they are today. So much strength, kindness, brilliance, confidence and humility, all in the same room.

Thank you for the inspiration and Happy International Women’s Day!

With Farah Abu Shamma and Abeer Abu Ghaith
