Meghan Markle said that women do not have to find their voice, they already have one, they just need to use it! The Talking Point Group’s first virtual coffee date during Women’s month 2020 was proof that women voices make an impact, it empowers, and connects! Our virtual coffee speakers spoke powerful words and they all connected us in a way.
By being human we already have a super-power, by embracing it and being alert that somehow it is not lost, or someone does not steal this gift of being human, we enable ourselves to be empowered (Karlien Holiday from #human1st). The fact that we connect, make us exchange energy. Therefore, sometimes our journey is just at a bend of a road and not the end of the road, but in the bend is our biggest and sometimes most challenging journey (Helena Vivier- breast cancer survivor).
You know the feeling of being left without breath, and a pandemic in your heart called depression? Starting new, one step at a time takes courage and that courage means that you need to surround yourself with voices of strength (Dr Marelize Vlok – Emergency unit doctor). We all have been fragile at some point in our lives, but some women have been exploited due to circumstances. Passion is what inspires us to fight for other women whose voices have been silenced, so that they would be able to speak again (Mickey Meji – Founder and Director of SESP and prostitution survivor).
You can change your state – your body, language, and focus. Women are leaders and by using your voice, and telling people where you are now, you can change not only your outcome, but also someone else’s life journey. (Advocate Mabel Slabbert) One conversation can change a perspective and vulnerability can bring healing. At The Talking Point Group we realised the power of connections and collaborations and that each connection inspires, connects, and empowers. Therefore, we are thankful for every woman using their voices to bring change.
Remember, keep on talking, you have an unique voice to inspire, connect and empower…
