But still I refuse to live my life in fear

I hope that by doing these things I advocate and show others that it can be done,
and not to stop doing something that you dream because of fear,
whether it be small like putting your hand up to complete a presentation,
or bigger such as travelling the world solo.
Wow, that was an amazing post. So nice to see a woman with enough confidence to appreciate chivalry. I admire your courage and bravery, not just in the face of a machete but every day on the road alone! You are an inspiration!
