Please forgive me. I launched the blog without even taking a minute to introduce it. So here it goes. I started The Only Space earlier this year; it took longer to start than I expected, mainly because I wasn't too sure about what it was that I wanted to achieve by starting this platform. After much deliberation, spreadsheets and emails, three months after having the idea, I decided to get going.
For as long as I can remember, I have always cared about women's empowerment. My beliefs, like many others, are a result of my experiences. Good or bad. They have all shaped me in to who I am. My painful experiences as much as my pleasant ones. I believe that as women, we have the right to tell our stories. It is more than a right, it is a duty; we need to tell our stories, especially if we have the freedom to do so. There is a beauty in knowing that you are not alone.
I want to use the blog on TOS to provide a platform for women from all backgrounds to come together to share their experiences. I want this to be a safe space for women to find: their voice, courage and a solution.
