Thanks to this blog I get asked to take part in many campaigns, surveys, research projects and so on, but every so often something comes along that I feel a strong inclination to be part of. A little while ago I was introduced to the What I See Project: a global online platform that recognises and amplifies women’s voices. All over the world, women are answering the question ‘What do you see when you look in the mirror?’ in order to share their story and feel empowered by relating and understanding others stories too. The brainchild of Edwina Dunn, the What I See Project is a non-profit campaign that has the objective of celebrating women from everyday life whose stories would otherwise go unacknowledged. Edwina wanted to share the real and honest stories from women about their
struggles, achievements and inner thoughts, allowing them to express
themselves freely through a website that appreciates them for who they
Over the course of a year, the What I See Project is asking women from all over the world to share their diverse and rich experiences. They’ve already seen more than 500 contributions from over 350 women in 11 countries since they launched in February this year. There are some truly inspiring stories on their website already, and you’re invited to create and share your own contributions to keep this inspiring project moving forward. Big plans are afoot for this great campaign if it continues to be as successful as it has been. You can see my contribution here or below, but make sure you check out all the other fabulous contributions too.
