On the 26th of August is Womens equality day, a day which women everywhere can celebrate how far we've come as women and also sharing love for being a woman. It's not always been easy being a woman and for some women in the world they still don't have the luxuries of being a woman we do in the UK. Some women in world are not allowed to do anything which men are they are simply forced to stay at home and look after the children which I don't agree with at all! I remember at school learning about the women who died just so women could get the right to vote, it feels strange being a woman who has always had equal rights to being a world where women were treated as less than men! Today I thought I would talk about how if you aim for a goal you can achieve it!

As far as careers go, despite being a university student I am doing some freelance working alongside of this in social media management which has been one of my goals for a while. I love that I am now self employed and it's amazing feeling to know that I work for myself and I earn my own money, a few years ago if you would of told me this I would of never have believed you as I was suffering a huge lack of confidence and never would of thought I could of taken this giant leap. It's so important to trust yourself and take that huge leap when rebuilding confidence in yourself. I am one of those people who always used to doubt myself and never believed I could do something but when you set your mind to something and believe, you actually can conquer your dreams. Achieving your dreams is a lot easier when you break it down into smaller steps, which is what I did.

First off you need to work out exactly what you want to do achieve for me it was to be self employed, to make this easier for yourself I would get a piece of paper and mind map- starting with your one key goal and drawing branches from there showing what you need to do to achieve that. Following this I would write down a list in order for you to be able to achieve this, a couple of suggestions of mine would be to have savings first, and also read up about what it takes to be self employed. Then it's about taking each of those steps until you finally are ready to take that leap! It will seem scary of course, but in life it's about taking those chances and following your dreams. You can do this, I believe in you! I am happy I am finally able to be confident enough to follow my dreams and you should do the same, be confident, you've got this.
