Confidence is a journey and is about going into every situation, with your head up high, believing that you can and that you are the best person for the job. It was a privilege to have these type of conversations with the women and to motivate them to set challenging but achievable goals, as well as enhance their self-improvement skills to stay on the path of personal growth, success and well-being.’’ said Shereen Mitwalli.
