Women Who Empower Us - Celebrating International Women's Day


This International Women's Day, we're celebrate women who empower us and remind us how much potential and power we hold, through supporting one another.


These are some women whose stories and words empower us..


"If you can, you must" - EM CAREY

Known as the girl who fell from the sky, Em Carey was involved in a skydiving accident in Switzerland and was told she would never walk again. Throughout her recovery, she wrote the words, “if you can, you must” as a reminder that if she was ever able to run again, she must. Em now lives by these words as a constant reminder to grasp every opportunity that life presents her with, and encourages others to do the same. You can shop the Francesca x Em Carey If You Can You Must Necklace here to wear as a daily reminder to live life to the fullest.
