In today's society, as women we often times allow what we see influence what and who we are. On "autopilot," we forget to practice self-love, self-care, we forget what it is like to have fun, sometimes we even forget who we are; we lose ourselves in our day to day life routine, surviving instead of living. #shehaspurpose will serve as an encouraging platform that will promote self-love, positive affirmations, virtual networking events, research that has been shared to educate women about mental and emotional health, supported by real-life experiences.
