THE SHOULDERS ONTO WHICH I STAND

Waking up today in the morning chill to the fact that it is Women’s Day got me thinking hard. Why? Because as great women have brought me up and I happen to stand on the shoulders of great men too.

Therefore, here is a thank you note to the men that have pushed me to being the woman God designed me to;
