This opportunity has provided me with skills and knowledge that will greatly benefit me in the long run. It has motivated me to not only pursue my future career but also to commit and achieve whatever I put my mind to, and to do everything with a purpose. I am truly grateful to have been selected for this programme.

Before GirlBoss Edge, I lacked the motivation and confidence to start. I went into GirlBoss Edge: with little to no experience or confidence. To my delight, I have come out of it a changed woman. I am no longer the doubtful girl, I am a Mana Wahine who will do the Mahi to be a Girl Boss. I have found a beautiful group of girls who have become my GirlBoss Whanau and who inspire and support me.
