She emphasized the importance of choosing the right partner for life because it plays a significant role in the success of a woman's professional life. " You have to choose your spouse well and share ambitions at the beginning of your life together ".
For Marie-Chantal Kanyinda, a woman can be successful in her career and still be present in her home. The story of her journey was enough to show women the importance of involving and considering the family in all decisions related to their careers.
Mrs. Espérance BILAU, the second speaker, is the symbolic figure of courage and determination for some. Her fascinating journey has demonstrated how a woman's perseverance positively impacts her children's success.
As a farmer, she was able to give the best of herself to survive and give meaning to her children's lives. She relied on her predecessor's idea to show women that the choice of a good partner is necessary for a successful career.
