International Women’s Day is coming up on Sunday, and is dual part call-to-action and celebration. By definition, it’s “a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.” That future part is key, because it’s a day of looking back, but also one of thinking ahead and moving forward.

This year’s theme is #MakeItHappen, and it calls for equal pay for women, increased financial independence, more women in tech, science, and engineering careers, more women in senior leadership roles, equal recognition in the arts and sports, and growth of women-owned businesses. There are reasons to feel optimistic about the progress that’s being made on a daily basis by females across the globe.

Leading up to Sunday, YouTube launched a campaign called #DearMe, in which women are invited to share advice with their younger selves, in an effort to inspire and empower females young and old and in-between.

What do you wish you’d known then, that you know now? What have you learned throughout the years that would have transformed the way you thought and felt about yourself in high school?

We wanted to participate in #DearMe too, because the spirit of the campaign is positive and refreshing and important. Magnet Media is a female-founded company and we all feel empowered to think, create, and express ourselves here on a daily basis.

Watch our #DearMe video below, featuring CEO/Founder Megan Cunningham, Business Development Directors Drea Bernardi and Rachel Steinberg, Animator Soo Min Yoo, Junior Strategist Kathryn Bernal-Silva, Account Support Representatives Kerry Gittle and Erica Spera, Producer/Director Amanda Huelse, and Junior Accountant Lyanne Lara.
