It's still sinking in. To be the chosen one! An opportunity to interact with the world's most powerful women is tremendous. The magnitude of joy and excitement cannot be expressed in sentences and words… and the selection is completely based on nomination!! Thirty-five mentees were nominated by the U.S. Embassy in their home countries.
I had founded Crosshairs Communication at 22, it feels most encouraging and special as it is a recognition that has been assessed based on Crosshairs' achievement. The dynamic team of mostly young women in their twenties brimming with energy has been a constant motivating factor and equally deserving of this credit. The programme: The Fortune State Department Global Women's Mentoring Partnership Program connects Fortune's Most Powerful Women i.e. leading women business executives in the United States with emerging women leaders around the world. It selects around 35 women from all over the world... and one of them is I.
I feel there is a larger world out there; it is important to keep the process of learning on and that is what I seek from this program. Once imbibed, I can then take back with me this newfound knowledge and sharing along with my experiences with the people I interact with. I believe this program is the vision for future and I believe the women in my country have the power to build that vision into reality. The program will mobilize business leaders, professionals and women from all occupations to walk together and share a common thought process.
My thoughts, as I write, can be best described in the following quotes with which I would like to end this blog: 1) "Do not limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember you can achieve." 2) "Do you know that within your power lies every step you ever dreamed of stepping and within your power lies every joy you ever dreamed of seeing? Within yourself lies everything you ever dreamed of being. Become everything that God wants you to be. It is within your reach. Dare to grow into your dreams and claim this as your motto: Let it be Me:" Mary Kay Ash.
