“Admire who you are, believe in yourself, have faith in your capabilities bring out the power within you and shine in your full glory. We can, we Are Sheroes.”

These are the words of Krystle Penza, Mvintage founder and designer, in her message aiming to empower women in our society and increase awareness on breast cancer.

“We never cease to be amazed by all the wonderful, brave and loving women in the world. The mothers who find the smallest of ways to make our lives a hundred times better. The friend that reaches out just when you need her, without you saying a word. The women who fiercely protect and stand up for the most vulnerable members of our society. The ones who with just a smile, can make the world a better place. The ladies who face incredible challenges head on, without looking back. The women who are determined to win – determined to make a difference”, said Penza

All women are SHEROES

Mvintage is sharing the story of five amazing Maltese women, who are all Sheroes in their own way. Each SHERO represents a superpower quality that makes her even more special. These superpowers are kindness, faith, love, protection and admiration.
