If a woman becomes a teacher, she transforms the knowledge from the books and induced for learning life from her own experience, if a woman becomes a doctor or a nurse, they help in treating the ones who are unwell. Let us not forget the story of Florence Nightingale. If a woman becomes a social worker she helps in providing advice, support to families to solve the problems they are facing. If a woman is a news reporter or a scientist, she spreads awareness in our society. Your circumstances don't matter and should not be a hindrance to your dreams. Fight against your obstacles like a swimming fish that is alive. JK Rowling will always remain a role model for and her life story will be an inspiration to all those struggles in their life.
