WHYITRIBE (THE REASON YOU THINK IT’S IMPORTANT TO CELEBRATE WHO YOU ALREADY ARE):

I Tribe to gain more insight to me and into other women so that I can encourage others to show their strengths, foibles, and to be in the moment of US! To show that you can do anything you want and to know others have done the same with support. I surround myself with supportive women who are not petty.

NAME A TIME RECENTLY WHEN YOU SAID SOMETHING GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF / HOW DID THAT MAKE YOU FEEL?

I am a loyal friend. One who shows empathy. I feel wonderful that I can show empathy toward others as it’s my innate feeling for others that gives that person the care, love, and understanding they need in that given moment.

WHY DO YOU THINK WOMEN SHY AWAY FROM CELEBRATING OR PRAISING THEMSELVES SO MUCH?

Unfortunately, putting yourself first is considered bragging or not caring for others. But in fact, when you take care of yourself and shine, that light encompasses all around you and takes care of those people who are in your circle of light. But we must remember that taking care of YOU is important.

HOW DO YOU OVERCOME THE TENDENCY TO DISCREDIT COMPLIMENTS YOU ARE GIVEN?

I don’t. Talented people almost always know full well the excellence within them. We just know.

HOW DOES SOCIETY REINFORCE THE IDEA WE ARE NOT ENOUGH AND HOW CAN WE TAKE THAT POWER BACK?

This is a difficult question. Women have come a long way but still, we’re on the back burner. Misogynistic and sexist men are still at the helm of power and that is unfortunate for women. Taking our power back as strong, smart, women may be started as one voice but should carry on as a group. Many voices can raise the roof and make changes.

WHY IS THE TRIBE MOVEMENT IMPORTANT?

Tribing is important to show everyone that having a support system, whether one or many, will help you through a personal setback, attain a common goal, and to encourage others to do the same.  We are all goddesses, capable of doing wondrous things.
