Anika says: One thing I would tell young woman about self-love and self knowledge is:
All the inspiration that we spend so much time searching the world for is actually within ourselves. I think that as women we spend so much of our time feeling so much pressure from media and from our surroundings to fit into a particular stereotype that we don't realize that we are already queens.
Self confidence starts from within, sometimes it helps to give yourself pep talks or stick post-its up, whatever you have to do to build that confidence, because that reflects on your outside appearance as well as reflecting on your confidence.
There is more than enough room for every single person who wants to succeed, to succeed. Its important to focus on yourself, keep a positive circle around you and put out positive energy, because energy is contagious. The most important thing I would tell them is: "Don't give up before the miracle happens".
