Nuria — Lahore, Pakistan

Nuria on Face Time

“The women here are so strong, so amazing…My mother in law went to Harvard Law at age 40. I find in my circle of friends that women’s rights are always discussed. However, sometimes I get a bit irritated,” Nuria continues. “As a woman, you get a lot of attention here whether you want it or not. The attention acts like an infringement on my freedom. Men stare so much that one does not feel comfortable going alone.”

A little snippet from Flora’s story from the web site: “My divorce was the best thing that ever happened to me. My divorce caused me to learn about life and the importance if being self-sufficient and economically self supportive that I successfully put all my ducks in order and now I am who I am. Every day I strive to learn new things about myself and how I can better those around me. I’m am proud to be 40 — I’m healthy, happy and fabulous and most importantly proud to be 40!”

Monica — Las Vegas, Nevada USA

Monica -- Las Vegas, Nevada

Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Monica knew from an early age what she wanted to do. “I remember the actual moment when I knew what I would do for the rest of my life,” she says. Monica was attending a private school and it was career day. Her teacher brought in her extremely handsome fiance; the students knew of him through the teacher’s comments and photos, but Monica felt there was something else familiar about him. “Once he came in the classroom, I knew instantly where I recognized him from – he did the news on Channel 7. At that moment, I knew what I wanted to do for a living – I wanted to be a news anchor.”
