Speaking Reel

“To reclaim your free will as a human being is the most liberating thing in the world. In our culture we are raised to not think for ourselves but instead to follow orders never stopping to question who we are following and why? I want girls and women to begin to question why they have been raised to believe they are lesser than. I want to train them to become fighters, not with their fists but with their brains by using the power of the female spirit we all share!”
