Hello beautiful people,
Today I will be highlighting Danielle in this weeks “The Power of Women Empowerment”.
1. Tell us a little bit about yourself + what it is you do and where can we find you on social media?
My name is Danielle Sanders.
I’m a 43 year old single mom of three.
In addition to working full time, I am a writer, spoken word recording artist and blogger.
I have 2 websites; www.thesumofmanythings.com, which is a lifestyle, wellness.
Personal Development blog for black women and www.blkwidowsweb.com , which is a music blog documenting “house” and dance music.
2. What does women empowerment mean to you?
Women’s empowerment means sisterhood.
It’s a community where women uplift, encourage, correct and support.
3. What do you love about women empowerment?
When women link up in positive spaces with intent and purpose, that’s a powerful thing. We can change our circles, our homes, our communities.
Women’s empowerment is POWERFUL because it creates a ripple effect in our lives and the lives of others
4. What is something you’re willing to bring to women empowerment?
I’m willing to bring authenticity and a willingness to trust.
I say authenticity because it’s imperative that we get real with one another when seeking to link up and support one another.
I have to be able to show you who I am (good, bad and otherwise) and vice versa.
I have to show my fellow sister that I trust her and that she can trust me as well.
We don’t have to be perfect to empower.
We just have to be willing.
Too many of us, look at one another with mistrust without truly knowing one another.
Women’s empowerment requires us to live by the mantra, “I am my sister’s keeper”.
I don’t believe we can be effective if we don’t first listen to one another.
5. How are you showing up for yourself and other women?
My website, The Sum of Many Things, embodies women’s empowerment.
I’ve been able to create a community of women who support, encourage, correct and uplift.
I have a facebook group which is an extension of my website, called “Safe Spaces of Sisterhood”.
My website and Facebook community seeks to provide women with a “safe space” where we can take care of ourselves first.
A place where we can be “poured into” instead of always pouring into everyone else.
I believe that the 1st step to empowering women starts with taking better care of ourselves mentally, spiritually, physically and emotionally.
6. What are 3-5 things you value about being a woman?
My heart and my ability to love even after heartbreak
My intuition which guides me and assists me in my decision making
My strength and capacity to bounce back from adversity with grace
