JANET - WONDER WOMEN - The WAU Project
"I was happy when I was chosen to take part in Wonder Women - the WAU Project. I took body painting as a challenge as I was shy with how my body looks like, but after the painting I felt so confident - no matter the shape or size all women are beautiful in their own special way. I feel I accepted myself as I am, I love me and how I am. I can't be you and you can't be me, so be who you are.
My experiences as a mother and a woman have been tough and rough, I was put down and I've had to pick up some pieces to bring myself together. There are many women who are going through domestic problems or violence but they don't share with anybody what they are going through. But through sharing you get help and you can learn that even if you have been put down, you can stand up again. You can learn the tactics of standing up for yourself. Go to the mirror look and look at yourself, do you see who you really are? Create the person you want to be, don't ever let anyone intimidate you. You are so special, know that within you. "
