What does empowered women, empower women mean to you?
Bambina: "I think that we women don’t guard our success jealously; we are always happy to help another woman find her voice and reach for her goals."
Bambina: "There are stories that need to be told. I simply helped Not a Daydream tell their story to a larger audience."
How can we empower more women?
Bambina: "Apart from providing employment for women, it’s important that they learn financial literacy so that their earnings are protected and wisely spent. I realize many women lead a hand-to-mouth existence, but knowing how to manage your finances, no matter your income level, is empowering."
What does supporting local mean for you?
Bambina: "Elevating locally sourced, designed and crafted products, but insisting on excellence."
If you can share one piece of advice for female enterpreneurs, what would it be?
Bambina: "I wouldn’t presume to dispense any advice. Journalists are often terrible entrepreneurs, unfortunately."
