Overcoming Life as a Woman!

this phenomenal book takes you through the journey of the author from who she was to who she became based on her encounters and challenges she faced in society, personally and in her career. And the person she had to unbecome to find herself after the hardships. This book changed my way of thinking and my approach to life and dealing with situations in my own personal life, as a friend, a partner, a family member and a career aspiring woman. Every chapter has a lesson to relate to and learn from. I could not put it down.
