Messages for International Women's Day
On March 8, people around the world celebrated International Women's Day. FIUTS Student Board members spent the day on Red Square, inviting anyone who stopped by their table to write a message to the women in their lives.
It was inspiring to meet so many people who had messages of encouragement and gratitude to share. Here are just a few of the messages, along with photos from the day!
"For all the women who blazed the trail for me. Thank you."
"People do not define you, you define yourself! Believe in yourself."
"Thank you for breaking down barriers, and helping me do the same."
"THANK YOU for believing when they doubt you, for standing up when they push you down, for fighting like a woman!"
"Thank you for your inspiration and unconditional love."
"You illuminate my world."
"Thank you for being you, and for pushing me to be a better person."
"We rise. We don’t sink. We dream. We prevail."
"Believe in yourself! Strength & power!"
"Always love yourself, you are amazing!"
"You are all an inspiration to me."
"I love you all. Dream big!"
Way to be us! Happy Women’s Day

"No one can decide what is right or wrong for you. You are powerful, you are capable, you are strong, you are EVERYTHING."
"Mamá, gracias por todo. Te amo. (Mom, thank you for everything. I love you.)"
"They tried to bury us. They didn’t know we were seeds."
