More Than Just A Pretty Face

Written by Jenn Sadai When will men realize that women are more than just objects to be admired or criticized for our physical appearance? I’ve been on both sides of it, and don’t appreciate either. Recently a potential business connection added me on social media, so I accepted it. After he sent me a harmless hello, he immediately switched gears and started flirting with me. Instead of addressing me by my name, he sends me a private message saying, “Hi {Read More}

When Women Work Together!

Written by Jenn Sadai I recently joined a local group of female entrepreneurs and I am beyond impressed by what they’ve already accomplished. In just a few short months, the organizer has united over 200 women from a variety of industries using only social media and her personal connections. She hosted an informal social at her house and has even planned an amazing sales opportunity for all group members at a local club. More importantly, she’s created an environment where {Read More}

Our Diverse Universe

Written by Jenn Sadai We live in an incredibly diverse and exciting world! Have you ever stopped to think about all the different types of wildlife, plant life, and human beings that roam the earth? From our climates, to landscape, to bodies of water, every aspect of our planet is unique. People are the most diverse beings on earth. There’s a vast variety of skin tones, hair colors and textures, eye colors, and body types. Some are born with additional {Read More}

There’s No Excuse For Abuse

Written by Jenn Sadai Abuse comes in many forms, from many sources and most often, both the abuser and the victim find a way to justify it. I made up a lot of excuses for the way my ex treated me. He had a hard life; he struggled with mental illness, and didn’t mean to do the things he did. Deep down he was a good guy who couldn’t control his response to all the hardships in his life. He {Read More}

Fear & Violence In America

Written by Jenn Sadai As a Canadian who’s never owned or seen a gun in person, I’m baffled by the gun culture in America. The only people I personally know who own guns are either police officers or hunters. The thought of owning a gun for personal protection seems extreme and unnecessary. In the United States, there is said to be more guns than there are people (Washington Post, 2015/10/05) and the main purpose for gun ownership is self-defense. A {Read More}

I Just Need To Pee!

Written by Jenn Sadai Public fear over allowing transgender individuals to use the washroom they identify with is completely unfounded. In fact, according to the Human Rights Campaign, the American Civil Liberties Union and National Center for Transgender Equality, there is no statistical evidence of Transgender individuals participating in any harassment or violence in public washrooms. On the other hand, there are many reported incidents of transgender people being physically and sexually assaulted in public washrooms. Throughout history, homosexual and {Read More}

Woman vs Woman

Normally, I love social media and feel blessed to be a part of a positive and vocal worldwide community. In the past few years, I’ve met many strong and empowering women on Facebook and Twitter.  I’m inspired when I see these women supporting and encouraging one another. I was exceptionally proud of those who chose to get involved in the women’s march, because millions of women put outside their personal differences and agendas to support the universal rights of all {Read More}

Two Wrongs Don’t Make a Right!

Written by Jenn Sadai I’m embarrassed to admit the horrific level of bullying that is happening in my own backyard. I’m from a relatively small city in Canada that only makes the national news when we do something awful. Our most recent shame was a viral video of teenagers verbally and physically abusing a nineteen year old woman with special needs. If you’re not aware of the video evidence of this particular bullying incident, it went viral due to the {Read More}

If You Don’t Have Something Nice to Say…

Written by Jenn Sadai I find myself reciting those words, “Be the Bigger Person,” in my head quite often. So many people, especially on social media, are quick to judge and attack without warning. Although my intent is always to spread kindness, I am opinionated about politics and social issues that affect the world we live in. I openly share my thoughts on certain subjects and it’s never my intention to offend anyone who disagrees with me. However, having a {Read More}
