I love women. Being the son of a powerful woman and brother to four amazing, resourceful, glass-ceiling shattering women, my respect for womankind grows everyday. But you know what? It’s easy to celebrate power and strength of women without realising that powerful women don’t just happen; they first start out as girls who are nurtured to believe that nothing is impossible.
The UN in 2012, declared 11th October as the International Day of the Girl to highlight the importance of paying attention to the needs of girls globally so they can grow into the Oprah’s, Michelle Obama’s, Beyoncé’s and Antonia’s (a.k.a. ‘Mummy’ in my household) that will continue to shape our world.
A week ago, I was proud to honour in invitation of The Bardou Foundation, @idriselba and the Prince’s Trust to celebrate this day with a private dinner at the Albert’s Private Members Club in London. It was a beautiful and inspiring evening for an all-important cause. I often look forward to fathering a daughter and knowing just how much this generation is working to make this world better for women and girls, I’m get more and more excited by the day.
P.s. I know I need to work on my paparazzi face. 😩
