Empower: make (someone) stronger and more confident, especially in controlling their life and claiming their rights.
You saw this one coming.
This week's WCW is the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner, the incredibly powerful Malala Yousafzai.
She comes from a different world, one where at times women aren't allowed to attend school. She fights for women to receive education, speaking out and even getting shot at for her beliefs.
Now, in all honesty, you're probably thinking, "but I just own a business, I have not won a Nobel Peace Prize. How is she like me?"
It's that devotion to something she believes in that we can learn from.
Malala isn't afraid to stand up for what she believes is right.
As someone with big dreams, you shouldn't be afraid to stand up for what you believe in either.
Malala also isn't afraid to push barriers or fight people who tell her "no."
You shouldn't have to either.
Do what you think is right and we'll help get you there.
It is a focal point of our movement to empower others, especially women. We invite you
back this same time next week to see what person local or abroad we will be
highlighting for the week!
