“My mom is the biggest role model in my life. Her support made me into a better woman. My topic is breastfeeding in public. As a strong supporter of women’s rights, I have a lot of empathy towards the strong mothers who have to deal with this issue in public, struggling daily just to feed their children. Although breastfeeding is a natural way of feeding, it is usually shamed in public, and if it is done in a restaurant/business place, the owner usually kicks out the mother due to others feeling uncomfortable.”
