One word...WOW! Is that even a word? I do not know, but how else can I describe the quality of work we witnessed here in the past fortnight? What about the incredible way you all described your role as a woman in today's world? From mother, to wife to grandmother, to fashionista ...one WORD came through on all 73 entries "STRENGTH" . Yes as women we are STRONG and we KNOW it! I personally visited ALL 73 entries as did the Design Team, and read each and everyone's journalling and I discovered just how strong us women can be from all walks of life and from every part of the world. I thoroughly enjoyed your work everyone and I loved learning so much about all of you and in many way I saw my self in so much of your journalling.
This leaves us with one little problem..HOW on earth is the Design Team supposed to pick only a few? This challenge was by far the hardest for the Design Team to pick their favorites. It is virtually impossible and I just want you to know that everyone commented on the outstanding standard of entries. Keep up the good work everyone and please do not be discouraged if you did not win this time.
The winner of this challenge, which was a favourite amongst all the Design Team for her incredible work, attention to detail, as well as her very deep and meaningful journalling and blog post is ...
Sabrina Sulaiman from Singapore
