Empowering women creates a society that has equality and powerful innovative women.
“Women are powerful and they need to know that, you have to take it upon yourself to be the change you need, we (women) are born with various gifts and we need to utilise those gifts to reach our full potential.

“Coming together is the only sure way women (can) make it; we should always strive to help each other out because as women, we have to build than destroy, we have to be able to see when someone needs help and offer that helping hand because we have all been in really difficult situations, and we all know how that can affect you without the proper help,” she said.
The event was a glamorous one as the ladies were adorned in breath-taking dresses and had the most eye-catching hairstyles. It was indeed a night of celebrating women and recognizing the achievements they have attained.
