When I was young, I wished I was a boy because in the Asian culture, girls are not not given as many freedoms as boys. My younger brothers were allowed to stay out later, get dirty, and play sports to their heart’s content.

I was a tomboy and all I wanted to do was play roller hockey with the boys, play baseball, and wear jeans. My parents finally acquiesced to the sports, but I was required to carry a parasol and wear white gloves to protect my skin. This was an embarrassment to me at the time, but now that I am older, I am grateful for all the lessons I’ve learned, the sun protection ☀ , and having balanced both my feminine and masculine sides.

Celebrate today with your girlfriends, female colleagues, and important women in your life, and continue with all the good work and energy that you bring into the world.
