I’m incredibly grateful to have met so many passionate and talented people and continue being awed, inspired and empowered by the women around me.

As Khalil Gibran said, “Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart,” and these words continue to ring true.

Thank you for this opportunity, GirlUp, and here’s to the duality and confidence of strong, powerful women and individuals who have taught me you can be resilient yet vulnerable, funny or serious and above all, confident but always on a journey to improve.

With love,

Anya Thakur
