This February, all month long, we’re honouring the work of 28 inspiring leaders. Women who are drawing upon and celebrating their culture while making a lasting difference in their community using their gifts. From authors and teachers, CEOs to entrepreneurs, not-for-profit directors, artists, and more, these women are changing the face of leadership.

These are truly women to watch and veza community is so pleased to share their brilliance.

May their stories inspire YOU to rise.

Meet Baksho Ghangass.

Baksho is a 57-year-old wife, mother, and former nurse.

She gave up her career to be a stay-at-home mom to give her daughter the best possible chance in life. Her daughter was born with special needs and with Baksho’s dedication and love, has become a self-advocate, speaker at large conferences and a published author.

Baksho is now a Board Member of the Semiahmoo House Society supporting individuals living with special needs, an avid international volunteer with trips to Nepal and an advocate in general for individuals with living with disabilities.

So tell us, Baksho…

What inspires you most? What motivates you to get up every morning?

The promise of a brand new day. To start over. To fill my day with love, service, appreciation, and gratitude.

How do you feel that your actions teach or inspire others?

I feel that I teach by example, with commitment, dedication, responsibility, loyalty, and the courage to do your best.

Which of your contributions to date have given you the greatest sense of pride?

I am fortunate that both my children have been a delight to support and watch grow where both of them show me what dedication, passion and love can do to shape another’s world. I am very proud of my hiking achievements including Enchantments in the Washington that is such a surreal place after a 18KM hike either way.

We hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know Bashko!
