In a world that it's ;
- Easy to reflect what others expect of us,
- Easy to exist in another persons shadow,
- Easy to exist instead of living
- Easy to be whatever and whoever,
I could be anything but I Choose to be me.
My ride has been exciting and challeging at thesame time, but I have been loving every turn .
In the midst of Stereotypes on teenage pregnancy, I have learnt to strive,
In the mist of racism and colourism, I have become the voice to many migrant women in Sweden .
In a country where prejudice looms every migrant woman as uneducated, a refugee, I have come to affirm that migrant women are smart, professional and can raise their voice when they feel marginalised.
In a country where the competence of my kids is minimised, I have questioned the laws, lawmakers and tendered my petition.
My stand on equality is clear "Everyone is worth it".
My stand on equality gave me an opportunty to be representative for migrants rights on the need for equality in salaries for every migrant, equality to level up on the working standards for migrant woment with the same academic ladder as Swedes.
With all this, I have also endured a fair share of critics and through it one thing stick with me " never back down when your human right is marginalised " .
Like I always say
I am Catherine,
I am a girl,
I am a mom,
I am a woman,
I am black ,
I am smart,
I am here to stay ,
And my rights to equality matters .
Take it, or move.
