Nikon Singapore decided to feature yours truly on their Facebook page today as part of International Women’s Day. All I can say is, thank you.
The theme for International Women’s Day 2019 is Balance for Better (#balanceforbetter), which is an appropriate theme for me as exactly one half of Bows and Ribbons Photography. We are, after all, a husband and wife team, working together in every aspect of our business, household and small family.
So when Nikon Singapore approached me for a feature on their Facebook page as part of their event commemorations, I was excited, and also a bit nervous. I took the opportunity to find out more about International Women’s Day and what I could do to encourage gender equality and help build a world that better balances the roles and responsibilities of both women and men.
As a part of Bows and Ribbons Photography, I work with my husband, who gave me all the emotional support I needed to start Bows and Ribbons Photography and become a full-time newborn photographer. And as a woman, I do my best to embrace gender equality at home and at work. I try to live every day to its fullest, doing what I love and being grateful for every little success achieved along the way.
I would like to thank Nikon Singapore for including me and Bows and Ribbons Photography for their International Women’s Day feature, and together with everyone who has supported me along the way as I embarked on the journey to do what I really loved.
