Thanks to the leadership of 'Girls Can Lead' for this noble initiative to empower the new generation of Girls aspiring for a greater heights. Glory be to God for the free gift of life and his plan for our lives. My journey as a female entrepreneur did not come by chance but something I grew up with. Growing up as a girl child, I always had a mental picture of how i want things to be in the next 30-50 years and forever. With that picture in mind, I developed some basic principles to safeguard that journey which is yielding results and becoming a bigger empire by day. By the grace of God, I have many companies and investments out there. It is the first step along the line, govern your life with principles. For instance; Besides the morals impacted in me by my parents and society in general, I always had a limit on where to go, what to say and do because wrong associations may leave you confused and influenced negatively. Education and perseverance: Whatever you are interested in, please learn more about it. Read extensively, research and ask questions. Nobody is born a perfectionist but you have to set your own standards. Falling and getting back on your feet are also part of the journey. It's like climbing a mountain – there are hills and valleys and you have ascend and descend – They make you stronger, don't let them break you! Be a good team player: Leadership is a calling that requires your dedication and ability to appreciate other people's contribution. I also see myself as a team player – there's always a shared responsibility among my team members that requires my support so they can deliver well.In doing this, I'm also raising the next generation of future leaders. I have many people that accounts to me as a leader – It should be the ultimate dream of every leader to raise new leaders at the end of the day. Be a different Girl There are many who believes when females assume leadership roles, they frustrate their followers with bad attitudes. There are many contributing factors but as a generation calling for change and women participation in top decision making, I'll urge us all to be good … #Leadership #HajjFawzie #Girlpower
