To Women, From Women: Words of Encouragement from the Women of Jelli

With the culmination of Women's History Month last March, let us take a moment to reflect on the extraordinary journey we've embarked on together. From the pioneers who shattered glass ceilings to the everyday heroes who defy expectations with grace and determination, each of us carries a story of strength, resilience, and unyielding spirit. To bid farewell to this month of celebration, here are some words of encouragement from the hardworking and creative women of Jelli. To women, from women.

IANNE, Ecommerce

“Growing up as the eldest daughter, I've always been my own worst critic. I'd constantly beat myself up over the smallest mistakes and crack self-deprecating jokes to cope. But as time went on, I started to see that being so hard on myself wasn't doing me any favors. If I can look at someone else and genuinely appreciate their beauty, why can't I do the same when I look in the mirror? In a world that can be tough and unforgiving, especially towards women and young girls, the least we can do is show ourselves some grace and kindness.”

ANRI, Ecommerce

“Being an only child, independence was a requirement and not an option. As I strove for perfection, this often left me feeling like I came up short, both for myself and others. Over time, I learned a valuable lesson: the people who truly matter celebrate your journey. And while it is true that we may not please everyone, being satisfied and happy with ourselves is certainly the greatest fulfillment.”

APRIL, Social Media

“It can be challenging being a woman, but let's remember, ladies, that we are tougher than many might believe! Always hold onto your power, empower yourself, and uplift other women!”

AZRAE, Project Management

“I identify as Aromantic-Asexual which means that I experience little to no romantic and sexual attraction. People would come at me and question my identity all the time, that I’m simply undesirable as a woman or that I’m too young and will eventually find a man to marry and understand the desire for child-rearing.

There are different notions on what a woman is, labels like “wife” or “mother” that they claim would legitimize your womanhood— ignore them. Redefine it based on what speaks true to your soul and reclaim the narrative!”

With these inspiring words, let us carry the torch of empowerment forward, inspiring one another to embrace our uniqueness, chase our dreams, and rewrite history with every step we take. Here's to the women who continue to shape the world—may your legacy of courage and empowerment echo for generations to come.
