Every woman has her own story. From Kathmandu to Amsterdam. A story can inspire. And motivate. A story that sticks with you is a story that does something. It shows you that anything is possible. Let's tell each other a story every day. By sharing your dreams and plans, someone else can help you. You don't have to do everything by yourself. We grow together.
A woman who still inspires me daily is Nimdiki Sherpa. When I met her in Nepal 15 years ago, it was as if I had met my soulmate. Nimdiki is the founder of the first Montessori school in Nepal. As many women were unable to afford school fees, she started an employment project, Beads for Life. Ever since we met, we’ve been working together. When it comes to equality and independence, we think alike. We are like two peas in a pod.
This season, we celebrate the connection women can have. And our new lucky tools are happy to join the celebrations. With lapis lazuli, you'll meet new people. Your soulmate perhaps, a friendship at its finest. Citrine fills every moment with happiness and joy. It's like the sun follows you everywhere. Black onyx is your friend and protects you wherever you go. With each step you take, you’ll become more self-confident. Rose quartz sprinkles love as if it were confetti. So don’t worry, there is enough for everyone.
This is the season to grow together. Because, by strengthening each other, we can achieve so much more. Shall we rise together?
