“As a nonprofit leader for the past 25 years, I firmly believe that empowered women and girls are in fact the “golden gate” to sustainable development. “Educate a girl, and transform a village,” is immutable because as women we pay it forward, and positive change multiplies. This book highlights finding our healthy and resilient selves, mind, body, and soul, to rise as a phoenix rises from the ashes of the past, to realize our full selves and transform for the better.”
