Vision for the future of women in the Western industry: “My vision for the future of women in the western industry is for women to continue to show up, stand out, be authentic, humble and kind. Women in the western industry are blazing trails everywhere, and not just in the Western world but also educating the non western world. To share their story and inspire others by their actions and make a difference is such an important task. The future for women in the western industry is exciting, and my personal goal is to inspire and encourage those around me & others to shine.”
