During a conversation with the female founders of technology, Meghan, who has vigorously campaigned for the empowerment of young women and girls, she said she hopes to do the same for young men.
Mother of Two Naadiya Moosajee, a South African engineer, social entrepreneur and co-founder of Women in Engineering, revealed: & We recognized the importance of not only education for girls, but also role models for boys – that we women are those who are influential and against whom boys can look up, & # 39; People reports.
& # 39; We both have sons and we thought we were not only role models for girls, but also boys – and not just our sons, but generally also in public. & # 39;
She added that having Meghan & # 39; did not feel hierarchical & # 39; because they were & # 39; women together and talking about the struggles we have, as well as the things we need to do to get ahead and grow and change our societies & # 39 ;.
Matsi Modise, founder of skill training company Simodisa, said Meghan is determined to continue to defend the issues that are dear to her, despite being a member of the Fold.

& # 39; She talked about being a mother and having duties as a duchess and fulfilling what her heart desires – and that it cannot just fade away now that you are a duchess, & # 39; Modise said.

She said the Duchess urged them to continue with their new ideas and talked about how to keep pushing and moving forward, knowing that they will do it for others who will follow.
& # 39; She didn't mean she was royal, but life in general if you have challenges, & # 39; Modise added, admitting that she was a little & # 39; impressed & # 39; felt from Meghan.
& # 39; She radiates grace and she takes on this task with so much grace, & # 39; said Modise.
