22 Amazing women who influenced my career

I want to pay homage to 22 of the wonderful women who have sown into me knowingly and unknowingly. 

I am having one of those mind-blowing months, where seeds that have been planted for years are finally blossoming and it’s nothing short of magical. So it feels fitting that I honour the women that planted those seeds.

It is always important to recognise who fed into your career, the goals you set, the boundaries you have made and broken. But as you will probably know by now, women are at a disadvantage when it comes to having a spotlight placed on their hard work. So please use the links below to look into the worlds of these incredible women, and maybe you will see why they had such an impact on me.
