All the women were questioned about their success stories, the challenges they faced to reach where they are today. They were also questioned on who was their pillar of strength and in the end, each of them sharing their wisdom guided young minds on how to be successful. It was an enriching interaction and the students were really inspired to follow their dreams. A token of appreciation in form of a shield and an appreciation certificate for contributing to the society and being the “women of substance”.
