Thank you @therealruthecarter for starting this challenge to finish out #WomensHistoryMonth in a fun way while showing the world anything is possible when women unite! So I stretched my hips and accepted this challenge of singing, dancing, and lip syncing to my favorite female empowerment song! We have all been through something in this life. We’ve all fallen and didn’t want to get up. We’ve had our hearts broken. We’ve all experienced failures. All women share these common truths and we can ALL rise when we stick together and uplift each other. Let’s keep this going and laugh and have fun along the way. I nominate @chrissyteigen @jessicaalba and @traceeellisross to keep this challenge going! ? @therealmaryjblige #WomenDancingTogether #WomenDancingTogetherChallenge

Kenya is home to 44million people and 88% of them live in the rural areas and rely in the produce they get from farming to sustain them. With drought being a result on seasonal rainfall, it becomes almost impossible to live sustainably on the small scale farming.Communities in arid and semi-arid regions face immense challenges, including drought, hunger, malnutrition, and poverty. Food is listed as one of our basic needs and it is inhuman that many die of hunger. I am honoured to be listed as a @globalsurvey17 ambassador representing Kenya. My Sustainable Development Goal is SDG 2: Zero Hunger. We spoke earlier this week about what is happening in #Turkana and i would love for us to talk some more about next steps and solutions. I believe there is more that can be done, that we can do, together. Its not only a select few who can take action, it’s our world, our people. What do you want your world to look like in 2030? In the meantime, click on the link in my Bio to take this year’s survey. It’ll take you all of 5 minutes. . . #17throughoureyes #17goalstotransformourworld . . . Dress by @lcwaikiki
