And on days when Lupita feels the need for a little uplift, she depends on mediation.
“It’s super helpful to me. I think it’s quite important to accept your every emotion. All too often we shun the negative emotions we’re feeling, because we’re part of a culture that’s about fighting it and getting over it and never really facing it. That’s what we do in order for the emotions to pass quicker. But sometimes when you resist how you feel, those feelings last longer than if you just accept that that’s how you feel,”
FEMALE EMPOWERMENT: Words for Work
“My hope is that programmes such as ‘Words for Work’ will help give young women the opportunity and confidence to share their voices.”
Lupita is a champion of the Words for Work literacy programme, which aims to boost the employment prospects of young women from diverse backgrounds by improving their communication and leadership skills and bolstering their confidence.
