By Estefania Renzi and Silvina Gerbaldo, YWCA of Argentina
We Estefania Renzi and Silvina Gerbaldo are volunteers of YWCA Carlos Paz and Cordoba. We would like to thank YWCA of Argentina and former world president Mónica Zetzsche, for the opportunity to participate in a training in the city of Buenos Aires, 800km from our city. This training made us reflects on how to grow as committed people with our dreams, giving our best and also benefiting the YWCA with our future leadership.
Some of the things we learnt were:·
- “The pursuit of happiness is within ourselves and we must learn to make the impossible possible.”·
- “Our growth has cost but we can see the results along these days.”·
- “To give of ourselves, however minimally, to another person can work miracles for those in need.”·
- “We understand that happiness is achieved with the simplest and simple things and opportunities we face, we need to grasp them.”
We also thank Accionar Entrenamiento de Argentina for having taught us that one can leave their limitations and achieve their fondest dreams. With our message we want to encourage all those young girls who are daily struggling to find themselves, that you are not alone and that there is a movement that can support and sustain the achievement of your dearest dreams. Having shared this experience together, it has strengthened our friendship as YWCA sisters and made intergenerational leadership possible.
We look forward to sharing many more experiences together.
