Meet Sylwia Gargala Qasim!
I am so grateful that I met Sylwia, not only because she has such a bright light, but because her passion for her purpose is met with big action and dreams. While Sylwia has a day job, she took the opportunity that the pandemic provided to make a difference in the world, most especially for women to take their power back. I’m thrilled to introduce you to one of the co-founders of Bonds Magazine, Sylwia…

What does your business do?
Bonds Magazine is an online publication run by women. Our goal is to provide a platform for women to share their stories, experiences, and to inspire women to speak their truths.
What should we know about you?
We are very passionate about equality and women’s issues. We focus on different stories; some are directly submitted by women who want to share their experiences and others are interviews we conduct with women who inspire us. Through storytelling, we are working to help bring women’s issues to light and keep the conversation about equality going.
Why do you love what you do?
We love that we are addressing the imbalance of women’s voices that are missing throughout the ages. For centuries, stories and narratives about our society and women have been written by men. Many of these stories portray women as weak, as hysterical, as temptresses, as somehow intrinsically bad. Think about the story of Eve, she was curious and brave but still today she is portrayed as the origin of sin. Imagine the kind of impact that story has on a little girl’s psyche. Bonds Magazine is a channel to reclaim the truth which is that women are bold, brave, and strong.
Tell us about your superpowers
We are building a community and our superpower is our ability to bring women together and engage with them so that they are actively participating in creating new and powerful narratives. Life is challenging and finding a support network can make a tremendous difference along our individual journey.
Is there a special offer you’d like to share with readers?
We invite women to submit a story to us about something that is important to them. We love knowing what women are thinking and feeling and publishing those stories. We also offer support in the form of our Coaching Corner so if anyone needs guidance in any area of their life, they can send us a question or a problem they are facing and we offer a fresh perspective.
We’d like to offer a 45-minute life coaching session with Sylwia to the first three women who reach out via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
