I really enjoyed reading this piece. I am a 27 year old, post-graduate qualified, professsional, chartered acccountant, and I am female.
I have been labelled as ambitious from a young age, and not in a good way, in a way that made me hate the word or being mentioned in the same sentence as it.
I have made it through that critical stage and now I love and embrace that word, my husband is a strong man, who is encouraged by a strong woman, and the myth that you cannot get a man if you are ambitious have been busted.
I now blog about my life and my experiences to help other women to not fall pray to that ugly myth and to embrace who they are, who they were made to be and what their true potential is.
