The Power of Women Empowerment | Whitney

Life.

Hello beautiful people,

Today I will be highlighting Whitney 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 Whitney Whiting and I wear multiple educational hats: Project Associate for the NYU College Preparatory Academy, Algebra I (Common Core) and Financial Literacy instructor.

When I am not covered in chalk, meeting with community-based organizations, or passionately writing about saving tips-n-tricks, I am avidly rooting for the New York Yankees from April – October, then the Duke Blue Devils from November – March.

To follow all of my adventures, you can find me on Twitter: @ItsWealthyWhit or Instagram: @itswhitneywhit

2. What does women empowerment mean to you?

Women Empowerment, to me, is synonymous with creation – creating literal and figure spaces for women to vocalize frustrations, plights, and solutions for change; creating equitable, and yet realistic, systems that allow women to discover and reaffirm their talents, then subsequently create revenue streams off of said talents; creating non-competitive platforms that celebrate each other personally and professionally no matter where we may fall on societal spectrum’s.

3. What do you love about women empowerment?

I love that women empowerment challenges the status quo and further challenges one another to be cognizant of how we interact with other women (cisgender to non-gender conforming women as an example).

I also love how embracing women empowerment is, even when our allies fall short of our supportive expectations.

4. What is something you’re willing to bring to women empowerment?

I am willing to bring transparency and a willingness to give space when necessary.

Specifically, with financial literacy, I will work tirelessly to provide women with the financial tools necessary to transform their current economic environment to one in which they can feel comfortable about participating in capitalism (although the system is heavily flawed).

5. How are you showing up for yourself and other women?

In everyday spaces, I aid my fellow sisters in dilemmas, especially professionally.

On social media, I will repeatedly comment, like, RT, and share content across all spectrum’s to grant another woman exposure for her hard work.

6. What are 3-5 things you value about being a woman?

I value utilizing feminine guile to achieve the greater good.

I value our innate ability to nurture.

I value the fact that talent for creating trends, and our earned dollars, have built multi-billion-dollar industries.

I honestly just love being a women because I know some men can’t withstand most of the things I’ve been through and still put a smile on their face to make sure their children are great.

Women are under paid in the work community and still making it.

We are just all around powerful and we don’t fold under pressure.

Boundaries.

Life.

Today I was reminded why it’s so important to set boundaries.

If I am going to make the conscious decision to set boundaries for myself and others…

I am going to honor my choices without having any regrets.

I am going to take full responsibility for the positive + negative things I allow into my space.

By doing that…

I have to be intentional with my “no”.

Without explaining myself.

Without belittling myself.

Without feeling pressured to change my answer.

Without allowing anyone to emotionally drain me afterwards.

You have to know that it’s okay to speak up…

If you are a person who struggles with speaking up for yourself and allowing others to pretty much project anything onto you…

This might be a little overwhelming at first.

But I want you to know that you’re in charge.

You make the rules.

You’re not obligated to do anything you don’t want to do.

People aren’t entitled to have parts of you, you don’t feel the need to share.

& guess what?

You don’t have to explain why you’re doing what you’re doing, period!

When you set boundaries, you’re practicing self-care…

This might look different for everyone.

But that’s okay…

You are telling people I love myself.

I value myself and space.

I am worthy and deserving of healthy relationships.

I am choosing to honor my space and will no longer tolerate any form of disrespect when it comes to my space.

Period!

When I decided to set boundaries…

I was able to genuinely show up for myself.

I was able to cultivate a space where I didn’t need to run away from.

I was able to trust in my power.

I was able to have more confidence when I spoke.

I was able to honor myself and decisions.

This allowed me to follow my intuition.

This allowed me to not force myself to be in spaces where I didn’t feel comfortable.

I began apologizing less.

Feeling less guilty.

This taught me the importance of self-control and discipline.

This allowed me to push through uncomfortable situations.

During this time my resilience empowered me.

I was able to believe the higher power within me.

I understood that boundaries wasn’t a bad thing.

It’s healthy.

It’s important.

Everyone needs them.

Even if it’s setting them for yourself.

It’s okay.

Being a woman who is so secure in herself that she can uplift other women whether that’s by sharing her story, mentoring, and/or supporting others.

No matter what situation we face, our experiences can help empower others.

The support system, the amount of love and care for other women and girls, and the experiences of different lifestyles.

By admitting to myself that I am only human and I can only do so much, but also knowing that anything is possible if I believe, trust the process, and put action behind words.

If I don’t do my part, someone misses out on an opportunity as well as if the women that I look up to didn’t do their parts, I would have missed my opportunity.

Those opportunities can be as big or small as changing the way we think i.e. positivity over negativity, inspiration and motivation, encouraging self-love, or just being there to listen.

We all have a purpose and that purpose is to serve. To serve is to be fearless and to look out for others.

6. What are 3-5 things you value about being a woman?

I value my mental, physical, and more importantly my soul.
