I absolutely loved the stories told in the book. It’s amazing how we, women, have so much in common in your struggles, growth, challenges, and aspirations. Throughout the book, I had many moments when I could relate to the feelings of the storyteller. My fave ones are “Soul-Lights Shining Brightly” by Deb Alcadinho and “Firing the Imposter” by Susan Isaac. Highly recommend it to all women as a reminder of our powers in transforming the world, and our ability to shine!

I have the privilege of knowing several of the wonderful women authors in this book – it was a pleasure to read their stories. I was impressed and inspired with all they have overcome to get to where they are today, and with how they have helped uplift others along their journey. This book is a great reminder that no matter what challenges we face, we’re not alone, and we have the strength and resilience to overcome them.
