Selamat Hari Kartini! 🧚🏼♀️🇮🇩
On this very special day for Indonesian women, I’d like to say something about 2 special women in my life 💞
I’m always very proud to say that I was raised by women, and they are none other but these 2 lovely ladies who I luckily have as my mother and my grandma - and I happen to call them both Mama! 👩👩👧 •
They have taught and shown me that a woman should be independent in so many ways, including decision making. Since I was a kid, they always support me to build my own character, get educated, speak up my mind, and do whatever I want - as long as I’m responsible over my own choices. They made me believe that a woman can be smart, strong, successful, beautiful, and kind-hearted at the same time - which I believe is the true Kartini spirit! 💪🏼 ~
