The whole year's words and dreams have been expressed through my "8 March: Women's March" poem and the photographs I took on that day. I want to thank all of the honorable women and gentle men of the globe for giving us this day, to celebrate, cooperate, and clap for our existence. Particularly, I want to take this time to thank all of the extraordinary women around me for making me an empowered woman. Through their daily life's experiences and teachings, I find inspiration for keep on going through the toughest moments of my country. It is because I have learnt "to hold on to the 'stone of hope' tightly" for becoming and bringing the change I want in my country.
Thank you so much.
