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

Well you’re already You, and you’re the only one who is You – so you might as well!

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

I’m a person who really knows their strengths (and weaknesses) so I say good things about myself most days, I don’t have an issue expressing those things and I think it allows me to be confident in all situations.

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

Some women are naturally more self-deprecating than others but I was raised by a single mother with three sisters – so surrounded by a lot of very strong women – and so it’s never been my personal experience and I think so many more women now are better at celebrating all that they are.

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

I don’t! Never have, bring em on!

WHY IS THE TRIBE MOVEMENT IMPORTANT?

Any movement that creates a conversation and uplifts and empowers is a great thing.
