Give a motivational message for the audience/women who are reading this.
To quote Laurel Thatcher Ulrich: “Well behaved women seldom make history.” The quote itself has an interesting history, but at face value, it reminds me to model my leadership after the many strong women who paved the way for me to have more choices in life. I hope through the FemTech Association of Asia we are able to inspire more women to start (FemTech) businesses or simply to take a first step towards better health.
