Her Philosophy on Women
As Snowden writes in her new book, “I truly believe women are the future of the planet. With our social and emotional intelligence, ability to juggle multiple responsibilities, willingness to collaborate and find peaceful solutions, women have the innate ability to create effective social change. And since women control much of the wealth in the United States, women have the opportunity to make a huge impact. But this can only happen if we unburden ourselves from the overload of our lives. By liberating ourselves from overwhelm and living our dreams, we can embrace our magnificence and share our gifts with the world.”
