CULTURAL EMPOWERMENT

The Cultural Empowerment page is all about cultural appreciation and awareness while acknowledging the accomplishments of women. Some people are familiar with all the aspects of their culture, while others do not have a clue. Taking the time to learn about other cultures with respect and courtesy is just as important as being proud of your own history and background. For some, embracing a unique culture or heritage may not be a huge part of who they are. Nonetheless, it’s imperative to educate yourself on your heritage and embrace everything that comes with your family’s culture.
