“I am proud of the women I work with and I am proud of myself. Proud of pushing hard and fighting for my girls. I am really determined. The women make me determined. I don’t do what I do to make a difference, I do it because they deserve it. I know what it looks like when a woman reclaims her mauri (essence). I work with women who are really brave, and yet are so judged.
We need to stop being so judgemental, we don’t know people’s lives. The junkies, the down and outs, no matter how distasteful we find them we need to have compassion for everyone.”
