SHEROES Is A Community Of Women Standing Up For Each Other

Last updated 5 Apr 2018 . 1 min read

A holistic network of super strong and determined women taking charge of their lives, while creating opportunities for all their peers, is what SHEROES is to me. Not just limited to being another job site or blog, SHEROES is an entire community of women standing up for themselves and each other.

I remember the first time I interacted with the SHEROES team – it was a ‘Work from Home’ Boot Camp organised in recognition of the shift towards freelance and flexible job opportunities. Unlike a lot of people (and almost everyone I knew) who instantly associated freelance with being lazy, in-between jobs or just another term for staying at home all day, Sairee and the SHEROES team set-up a session to encourage and empower women to make the best of this revolutionary shift.

Having heard enough people tell me what a huge mistake I was making after leaving a full-time job, interacting with Sairee and Monica that day was the refreshing and empowering conversation that I needed.

I had the opportunity to speak with the both of them after the session and their encouragement and enthusiasm were absolutely contagious (as it continues to be till this day).

Over the years through SHEROES meets, workshops and other interactive sessions, I have got a chance to constantly learn from and meet fabulous women that refused to back down from anything. It also gave me the chance to be there for my peers, whether as a non-judgemental ear or a motivational push.

What sets SHEROES apart for me is the motivational support and a sense of community that it offers women everywhere, without requiring a daily physical presence. The confidence and strength that you get as a young girl or woman knowing that someone has your back or that you have a network of strong women you can turn to instantly for help, is tremendous and goes a long way in encouraging women to be who they are and not what they are expected to be.

With SHEROES, not only do you have amazing women cheering you on and supporting you on your journey but also an abundance of resources empowering you to do so with your head held high.

And for me – this is where the magic of SHEROES lies.

Often we are so restricted by the kind of people we interact with and the world we live in that we accept many aspects as the norm even if we disagree. But with SHEROES – you have the opportunity to constantly grow, learn and give back at the same time.
