In honor of Women’s History Month, Vashtie joined several other influential and creative girl bosses on a panel produced to honor their achievements in the entertainment industry and celebrate women everywhere.
Curated by event producer, DJ, and brand ambassador Majorr Smith, Vashtie sat alongside talented peers and friends Julz, Saada, Marley, Quiana, and Paulette. At the SoHo House in Lower Manhattan, the all female panel spoke words of wisdom to the crowd and each other, sharing their experiences as creatives and women.
Whether it was during the discussions of cringe worthy beauty standards, perseverance and overcoming adversity, or the importance of wellness and self acceptance, these women had a lot of things to say.
If you missed it, here are some of the best quotes from Vashtie and the rest of the girls:
“If we’re not supporting each other, we’re hurting each other. We have to stand together no matter what.” – Vashtie
“There can be multiple Queens and that’s okay.” – Quiana
“Don’t alter who you are because of someone else’s inability to see who you are or understand who you are.” – Majorr
“Passion is the underlying strength of a woman.” – Julz
“Now is the time for us to earn our stripes.” – Marley
“You can be bold. You can be sensitive. You can be girly. You can be a tomboy. You can be whoever the f*** you want and that doesn’t have to define you.” – Paulette
“Competitiveness is not necessarily a bad thing. Not when you’re tearing people down like crabs in a barrel.” – Saada
