Thesis Project - "Becoming Her"

Female Power is what a female usually gets from their mother originally. We learn from our moms and mimic them since we are kids. Mothers’ small actions can affect young versions of us so much that they build who we are right now. We are generally like our moms, especially in the career ambition aspect. In terms of career ambition, mothers serve as powerful role models. Daughters witness their mothers navigating the professional world, overcoming challenges, and pursuing their goals. This exposure instills a sense of possibility and determination, inspiring daughters to pursue their ambitions with confidence and resilience. We inherit female power from our mothers and will also pass to our daughters. This inheritance of female power from mothers to daughters forms a legacy of empowerment, nurturing successive generations of women to embrace their potential and wield their unique brand of female power.
