Each of the women interacted with the audience, delighting and amazing them with first-hand insights about their entrepreneurial experiences. They also autographed copies of the book for those present and took pictures with several of them.
Author of Dare to Be, Ms Cobbah, highlighted the authenticity of each of the women in pursuing their dreams, challenges encountered, how they persevered and developed their skills and their faith which kept them going. She also emphasized the hard work involved for each of them and the struggles they had to go through.
