Girl Power Pod aims to inspire and motivate women to feel empowered to pursue their dreams. When I was growing up my dad told me that girls can do anything, and this is something I wish every woman could hear today. I believe that the inner desire to create change, and the external need for change, are linked - yet many of us feel helpless because we are so entangled in the current systems and structures. I feel that hearing real, inspiring stories from people who are questioning the way we live life, and who have made (or are in the process of making) this transition, is what's needed to help guide other women on their journeys.
