I would like to thank Zonta International and the donors for this incredible honor. It is a real privilege to receive recognition alongside such successful women around the world. In a changing business landscape, it is important to address issues like raising female status in the industry. Personally, initiatives, such as those by Zonta, are very encouraging and have boosted my confidence, as well as my determination to accomplish even more.
