My Life As A Woman: World Edition

In May 2020, I started a project called the “My Life As A Woman Project” with the intentions of collecting the stories of a few women from around the country. It escalated into collecting stories from women around the entire world, from a total of about 200 or 201 known countries, and dozens of islands and territories, and resulted in about 530 women contributing their knowledge and wisdom to the project.

I had hoped to get the book out by the following year for International Women’s Day on March 8th and that goal was accomplished, as the project and book…

The human brain is not built to read. If you have a look at a diagram of the brain, there’s no “reading lobe.” Instead, you’ll see many different parts of the brain all working together to perform different actions and processing information all at once very quickly. As students or any readers read, they create new neural connections. These pathways are progressively strengthened through repeated reading practice until word recognition becomes automatic and instant. …

A broader look beyond the surface!

Women empowerment is undoubtedly the hottest topic of the 21st century debates! Gender fights can be traced back to decades and even centuries. Men and women have been trying to prove themselves since the beginning of time. However, the respective topic was only restricted to discussions back then. And practical implementations have started recently!

Now, women are visibly growing and supporting society. They are given freedom of speech, expression, and making choices. They can study whatever they want and wherever they want. They are working in the fields of their respective preference and choice. Women have come forward as phenomenal…

When you’re going through a bad patch or depressed, what do you do about it? Browsing social media in order to look at memes to forget your problems? But as you can imagine, what happens if social media browsing becomes too boring, which indeed, happens after a while. You may feel yourself just utterly alone and depressed. Social media is often a very temporary outlet that helps release endorphins that make you feel good for a very short time, but it does not last.

What has long been forgotten by so many, as they are not used to it, however…

Putting together this project, the My Life As A Woman Project Initiative, I am writing this now less than a year later. Our world started with a pandemic during an election year, and it seems, the world is divided more than ever over two leaders, one who lost, and another who won, and the world awaits for what is coming next. Friends are no longer friends and family seems to not talk to you. The world has very much changed… even cancel culture eventually make its way to us all. …

Netflix The Queen’s Gambit has taken the world by storm.

The critically acclaimed mini-series stars Anya Taylor-Joy as Kentucky underdog Beth Harmon — an orphan-turned-chess-prodigy, climbing the grandmaster ranks amidst the male-dominated milieu of the 1960's.

The series stays pretty faithful to its muse, a book by the same name, written in the early eighties by American novelist Walter Tevis. The Queen’s Gambit is a “tribute to brainy women,” Tevis clarifies to the New York Times, “in the past, many women have had to hide their brains, but not today.”

Although Harmon herself is only a genius work of fiction…

Messaging thousands of women on Fiverr, first asking if they would be on board for a project like My Life As A Woman, was somewhat scary and exciting at the same time. What other reason might I have to speak to women around the world? Each woman sharing her story with me and you was a gift to us, to everyone who reads it.

Getting to talk to so many, hear their stories, have casual private conversations that I could never share, but much of the gist of it is within the book. I could have never imagined what these…
