"What I wanted to do was connect women of color globally to define  the world on their terms," said Simone Bresi-Ando, far right, founder of I'mPOSSIBLE, whose career and motivation conversations started in the U.K. via Google Hangouts and events. With her social enterprise, Bresi-Ando seeks to educate, connect and empower young women of color by celebrating, highlighting and promoting the achievements of women from all ethnic backgrounds, showcasing their life stories and successes.

"There's something Lupita N'yong'o said that I just can't get out of my mind. The phrase she used was 'the seduction of inadequacy,' and it struck me---stopped me in tracks," said Bresi-Ando. "We are so used to being seduced by inadequacy. What I want to ask you today is, could you please stop it? Now, we can be seduced by the possible."
