#OneDayIWill

It was International Women's Day on March 8th as I am sure everyone knows. :P
Got pretty excited about the Google Doodle. (http://www.google.com/doodles/international-womens-day-2016). Also, got curious.

So I sent the following text to some people on my list -
Hey!
So this is in regard to the Google Woman's Day Doodle if you'd seen it. They'd asked a group of women to complete the sentence starting with #OneDayIWill...
It was a good exercise because these women actually paused to think about their dreams.
So, today, I want to ask you the same. Complete the sentence.
Think about it for a day or two or whatever and get back to me.
Basically, yeah, I will compile and put it up. And it will be a list of all you stand for and all you want from life.
I hope you'll participate.
Thank you. :D
