Visit Didi’s Website “Thank you Rosie Peppy Parke! To be a recipient of a SIP award is an amazing feeling. It is an encouragement for me to continue to work hard because I am making a difference in someone’s life. In addition, the SIP award is allowing me to address my own stigma as a woman in the workforce. I get disheartened because I think I am working in vain. I have felt like I was being taken for granted and like I did not meet a “certain standard”. On March 30, I will proudly say, these depressing thoughts were once a part of my past. The SIP award is a confirmation of that! I hope that this event will inspire me to encourage other women, especially young women, to strive for what is in their hearts and not what the “world” wants them to be.”
