Woman of substance

Malawi’s Vice President, Joyce Banda, recently spoke at University of Arkansas, Clinton School of Public Service. I really admire the VP for the work she has done and continues to do through her foundation and various government positions to help the vulnerable in Malawi.

As she states in her speech, her “life mission is to assist women and youth to get political empowerment through education and business.” Though politically vulnerable after her firing from the ruling party recently, she continues to walk tall and inspires young women such as myself. She is a testament to the power of education and self belief; and the strength that comes from being economically empowered.

Be encouraged as I was by listening to this “woman of substance.” (My apologies in advance to any mobile users who are unable to view this video).
