What is the Challenge Accepted Instagram movement?

To change any problem, we must begin at the root: the seeds that are planted to create the thoughts that lead to these horrific actions. . We must redefine masculinity and how it’s viewed. We must begin to educate our sons and make no differences to our daughters and mothers. It’s not an easy road but the more educated we become on the issues, the more our empathy can change society around us. —————————————  Herhangi bir sorunu değiştirmek için kökten başlamalıyız: bu korkunç eylemlere yol açan düşünceleri oluşturmak için ekilen tohumlar.  .  Erkekliği ve nasıl göründüğünü yeniden tanımlamalıyız. Oğullarımızı eğitmeye başlamalı ve kızlarımızla annelerimiz arasında fark yaratmamalıyız. Bu kolay bir yol değil ama bu konuda ne kadar eğitimli olursak, empatimiz çevremizdeki toplumu o kadar değiştirebilir. . #femicide #pınargültekin

Zeycan thinks that we can also be the victim one day and our monogram picture may also be in the social media posts just like the other women that have suffered violent deaths and it does not matter how privileged we might think we are.  So this trend was started to spread awareness, empower women, and let each other know that the pain of all women is the same and we all are hurting together.

The glam never leaves, it was always a part of the plan… so was PHILANTHROPY. . I’m often asked, •how did you get into philanthropy? •what happened, I thought you would be a designer? •You should be a designer instead, will you? . And my answer is always, “Philanthropy was always the end-goal. Fashion and beauty pageants were a path to gain influence, doing what I love, and with that name and influence, I would one day start a foundation in my name to formally bring light and awareness to global social issues that often get ignored. . I was always planning for the route to the destination but the destination found me first. Sure, I still did try to do fashion (and will again in the future), I worked very hard for both pageants I was in, but it’s often not about winning or the success of it, but the effort and what it teaches you ⭐️ . I personally feel dressing nice & knowing the ins & outs of fashion as well as professional interview training and etiquette has helped me facilitate a better career in philanthropy. Nothing was wasted, nor did I go on a path of not knowing what I wanted. Everything worked together to bring me here 💫 . I thought I’d have a private foundation in my late 30’s or 40’s, but I got it 15-20 years before, unplanned. . I’m always asking myself, “What now? You got what you wanted far earlier than you expected”… so now I feel it’s time to honor what I’d say I’d do to know it wasn’t in vain. . Life has an interesting way of making things happen, one thing I know is that if you consistently put the effort towards something, you will be blessed with better & more. Sometimes God (or if you call Him the Universe) needs to see how committed you are first before the blessing arrived. . Trust in the unknown, there’s plans better than you can imagine 🌟
