An Homage & Call to Women In The 21st Century

Confession: I am a reformed sexist.For a long time I held the view that on average, women are not as capable as men. This view was based on my experience; it was what I saw around me.

Understanding & Growing Your Creative Mind Pt. 1/3

This is a very difficult and abstract topic. Even though it’s one we know well, there is no question the core aspects of this concept are difficult to grasp.
