Tack kära Sanna för ett fint möte ikväll... hoppas du tar god hand om dina talanger smiley, tummar hålles.

Jag måste ju vara en av de lyckligaste personerna på jorden, eftersom jag har infriat mina egna målsättningar för länge sedan och därför kan fokusera på andras.

Jag har en ny favoritförfattare, debattör etc. Nyfiken på vem hon är?

Thank you dear Sanna for a fine meeting tonight ... hope you take good care of your talents.

I must surely be one of the happiest people on earth, because I have fulfilled my own goals long time ago and therefore can focus on helping other people in there effords ... .

I have a new favorite author, debater, etc.
Curious as to who she is?
Here she comes ... hold on to your hats smiley.
Here name is
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’

I admire her for her warmth, her incredibly charming intelligence that reveals what is hidden behind the veil of illusion and for her creation as both a writer and debater.
Humor is one of her gentle weaponssmiley.

Beyoncé must love surprises. Because late last night, she unexpectedly dropped her fifth studio album, Beyoncé, on iTunes. It’s what she’s calling a “visual album,” and it features 14 songs and 17 music videos — including a song about her daughter, Blue Ivy, and guest appearances from husband Jay-Z, pals Justin Timberlake and Frank Ocean and her Destiny’s Child compadres Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland. But the highlight of the album (and yes, we are biased): The song “***Flawless,” which samples the message author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie delivered in a talk at TEDxEuston called “We should all be feminists.”

“We teach girls to shrink themselves,
to make themselves smaller.
We say to girls,
‘You can have ambition,
but not too much.
You should aim to be successful,
but not too successful.
Otherwise you will threaten the man.’
Because I am female,
I am expected to aspire to marriage.
I am expected to make my life choices
always keeping in mind that
marriage is the most important.
Now marriage can be a source of
joy and love and mutual support.
But why do we teach to aspire to marriage
and we don’t teach boys the same?
We raise girls to see each other as competitors –
not for jobs or for accomplishments,
which I think can be a good thing,
but for the attention of men.
We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings
in the way that boys are.
Feminist: the person who believes in the social,
political and economic equality of the sexes.”
