Amina Kaja

High School Student

We shouldn't tear down other women just so we can feel higher. Putting out another flame doesn't make yours shine any brighter. Once I got over that jealousy, I started to see people as inspiration. I see what they're doing and I feel inspired and proud. I get this good feeling in my chest.
