Being an Eritrean woman means having a bloodline of resilience, hope, faith, and determination. I come from a country who by logic should not have been able to win independence against Ethiopia. We were outnumbered, outgunned, and betrayed or abandoned by every ally. However, Eritrea produces determined minds and women who only kneel down for two occasions; to pray and to shoot. Being Eritrean is my biggest blessing. – Asmeret S.

Being a Latina woman to me means using every obstacle as energy to make me stronger. It means lifting up other Latinas and empowering them so that they can become successful. For me, it also means staying humble, and never forgetting my roots or the importance of family. Evelyn P.

To be a Hmong Woman to me is to be a strong Hmong Woman who believes in herself and her dreams as a Hmong-American Woman. To me, that means to uphold my aspirations and commit to myself and beliefs. At the same time, to uphold the history of my people and understand the language, history, culture, and traditions. It also means, to act like a Hmong woman to help my family and fill my role as the eldest in my family. Lastly, to help other Hmong women follow their dreams and goals and understand what they are worth and capable of being/doing. – Nkaujyeej Y.

Being a Somali woman entails a lot of struggles that have contributed to make me the strong woman that I am today. As a diaspora there’s been that sense of not knowing where I belonging to, that’s why the definition of home has changed for me multiple times growing up. Even though I haven’t been to Somalia I’m very grateful that my parents have taught me about my homeland and it’s beautiful culture. That’s why I’m proud to say home is where the heart is!!! – Hafsa H.
