International Womens Day

At Chop’d HQ we’ve been working hard to bring International women’s day is a global celebration of achievements made by women. Drawing people together from a diverse background to campaign for change, and support women and girls in all that they face. To mark this day, we have caught up with some of the brilliant women that Chop’d couldn’t do without.  

What does International Women’s Day mean to you?  

“International women’s day is a fantastic way to celebrate the achievements of women near and far. For me, it is a day to celebrate the women who are making moves in the science and tech world, the women who are creating new fashion designs, the women who are raising their children, or studying, taking a break, working in a job they love or becoming the person they want to be. It is a day for empowering us to be the best version of ourselves and support others in whatever path they decide to follow” – Eloise. 

“International Women’s Day is a reminder of how much more needs to be done to achieve real and concrete equality in the workplace.” – Alessia 

“Womens day is every day for me, not just the 08/03. I have family and friends, so every day when I get up in the morning, I celebrate myself and those around me” – Mika 

What has made you proud over the last year?  

“A lot of things, I am proud of my friends and I for doing what makes us happy, graduating from university during a pandemic and kickstarting our careers in cities across the UK. I’m thankful to every woman that gave me guidance to get me to where I am today, from family and friends to teachers and colleagues. I am proud to be surrounded by amazing women who are kind, supportive and inspiring” – Eloise.  

“I am proud of my ambition and my strength; I never gave up on achieve my goals even though sometimes they seemed so difficult to achieve. My biggest achievement in the last two years is to have faced and overcome a great change in life and to achieve self-set goals in my personal and professional life” – Alessia 

“I have a family; nothing can beat that. I am a mother, daughter, sister, wife, and best friend. I am proud to be me. I am proud to help people in all that I do, to put a smile on someone’s face.” – Mika 

We’d like to say thank you to the Mika, Alessia and Eloise for taking part in celebrating women’s day and celebrating themselves.  

Happy international women’s day from everyone at Chop’d.
