Story of my Life #MaaHoonNaa – Ladies Only at Khar Social


About the event:

“I’m a single mother. What’s your superpower?”

As YOSO & Festivelle, we are constantly looking out for means to empower women. And so we’re organizing a storytelling event, especially for our brave mothers.We want to showcase stories from women who have taken charge of their lives as mothers and as child bearers, all by themselves. Together, let’s try and change the narrative that is imposed upon the modern woman, that makes them believe that they ‘must’ wait for the right time, for financial stability, for a husband or even for the right person to come along to be able to have a child.
These stories would be related to any positive experience in a single mother’s emotional or actual journey – from wanting to be a mother to actually being one. This event is for all the single mothers out there, who have done it all and continue to win every day with their children!

We would like to think of ourselves as a medium between these kickass ladies and a number of women who shall attend the event and watch their stories online in order to empower them to take their life choices into their own hands.
