"I gave my three year old daughter some worthless coins, and jokingly told her that she was rich. She went and hid the coins away, and I forgot all about them. Around the same time, my oldest daughter got a bunch of money from her aunts and uncles for her birthday. A few months later, we needed money for food, and I asked my oldest daughter if we could use some of her birthday money. She refused. I almost started crying, because I thought then that I had completely failed as a parent. But suddenly, my youngest daughter appeared, and gave me back the handful of coins that I had given her."

"After my son was born, there was a period of several months when I couldn’t find a job. I looked everywhere. My mind was a mess. I felt angry toward everything. The lowest point was when my son got diagnosed with malnutrition. I hated myself."

She initially said “no” when I asked for a photo, but another old woman walked by, and began speaking passionately in Ukrainian. Apparently convinced by the words of the passerby, the woman shrugged, and posed for the picture. After everything was finished, I asked my translator: “What did that other woman say?”"She said: ‘You must not refuse a photo, because you must represent the women of your land. Now go to eternity!’"(Odessa, Ukraine)

"What has been your greatest accomplishment in life?""When I was young, my best friend and I were taking an exam to qualify for pilot school. I knew all the answers so I raced through the exam, but my best friend was struggling with the math. So I leaned over and tried to help him, but we both got caught and were automatically failed. I didn’t get to be a pilot, but I’ve always felt good about trying to help my friend become one."(Korzhi, Ukraine)

"There is a stigma in this country around women with jobs. So I want to start an organization that provides girls in the Congo with examples of women around the world who have balanced family and career. Most men in this country think it’s only about money. They think: ‘If I make enough money for us to live, then my wife should take care of the children.’ The common belief is that a woman who works is hurting her children. People don’t realize that children also gain from the knowledge and experiences of their mother."(Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo)
