Question: How will you empower young women and help them become more socially aware?
Steffi: “Hello, good evening everyone. Now, social media, this tool has been a driving force in all of us, but we have to draw a borderline so that this youth will not take advantage of the social media. We have to see social media like how it is, the way it is designed, and that is to unite people and never to divide us in the first place. We have to be responsible users.”
