Happy International Women’s Day!
Growing up, I was told “Girls like you shouldn’t become doctors.” Later as a surgeon, I had to hear “Women have no place in the operating room” and “But you’re good looking, why do you want to work?” Words meant to hurt, condescend, or make me second guess myself – all that made me do was work ten times harder, and push myself to be a million times better. I’ve used situations like this as fuel to make me stronger and tougher.
Women make amazing, detail oriented, meticulous surgeons. They communicate well and make amazing doctors. Not only that, but women put their heart into the things they do, and love and sacrifice for people they care about in ways that are incredible. Women can do anything they set their hearts and minds to. On today, March 8th, International Women’s Day, I wanted to celebrate the achievements and strength of women all around the world.
Me and my team at MD GLAM have decided to run our biggest promotion to date. To celebrate women, starting today 8am until March 18, 8pm you’ll receive 30% off your entire purchase on MDGLAM.com. Use code GIRLPOWER30. A portion of all proceeds will go towards charity that supports women education.
Respect and admiration to all women ❤❤❤
