At what point in your life did you consider yourself a feminist? Was it an event or a process?
I have never thought about whether I was or wasn't a feminist. I believe in equality for all people, not just women and I live my life by these standards. Feminism isn't something you celebrate. Feminism is a thought process and a way of life and we have a responsibility to act responsibly in order to ensure equal rights for all mankind.
Who most influenced your awareness of your feminism?
I didn't realise it at the time, but I grew up as a feminist. My Mother Wendy Young had 5 children yet she continued to study and obtained her degree when she was the age I am now. My sister, Jennifer Lemon is also a fierce feminist who has always lead by example.
In what ways has your feminism informed your life choices?
I am fiercely independent and strong and believe in supporting and uplifting women.
In what ways do you share your feminism with others?
I believe in connecting authentically and have surrounded myself with a strong network of women through the years. These women know that they can count on me and visa versa.
Describe your vision of a feminist world.
We are equals and when we start treating one another as such, the world will be a kinder, gentler place. We need more of that.
How I Define Feminism:
I believe that all women should have equal opportunities.
I am passionate about helping others and I strive to do one random act of kindness every day. I am hardworking and am passionate about building strong and authentic connections in both my business and my personal life. I started #Opportunity365 to encourage others to find a gratitude in their daily lives. The project has helped many to connect and has encouraged others to live positive lives. When clients hire me they always get more than they pay for because I am passionate about every single aspect of the work I do. I hope that in some small way I can inspire others to use social media for social good and connect on a deeper level. We aren't getting out of this life alive, so it may as well be a journey with friends.
