To close out the first full day of #WeAllGrow Summit 2018, attendees heard from four badass women about the power of storytelling. Presented by Red Bull Amaphiko, this keynote session focused on the importance of our past experiences and how they shape our future, as well as the need to use our voices to create change.
Lucy Flores, Carolina Rubio MacWright, Rosa Clemente, and Paolo Mendoza bravely took the stage to share their journeys. While all women come from very different backgrounds, each have spent their lives harnessing their voices to drive impact. Through their individual activism, we left with the same message - we cannot sit ideally by and expect change. We need to be the powerhouses driving the change because we are strong and powerful enough to shape society. There is no time to waste because everything we need can be found inside ourselves.
Here are some of the most powerful quotes from the session.
