Book Lovers: Giselle Rufer
CLASSY AND FABULOUS
‘I am a woman who was born a dreamer. At times, my dreams were the only things that carried me forward. It’s important to have dreams but it’s more important to realise them. Through my journey was long and often difficult, virtually all of my dreams have come true. I know that there are many more to come, for age has no corner on accomplishments” Giselle Rufer, Creator of Delance
Butterfly in a storm by talented author Diana S. Zimmerman is The True Story of Giselle Rufer, Creator of the exclusive Delance Watch for women, “a symbol of strenght, unity and authenticity, for all women who want to contribute to the future of humanity.”
When she launched the concept of “women empowerment” and “women who are making a difference in the world”, not many people could understand the meaning of it, but if there are so many women now who want to change the status quo is because women like Giselle paid the price for progress. Her story holds the magic of a future world, a story that becomes part of who we are. There are stories that impact us in more ways than one, and Giselle’s story saved many lives already.
When she lost her father (Delance) Giselle was eight years old. Little she new that few decades later she will become a legend.
True philanthropist at heart, Giselle, thinks like a queen: failure is just another stepping stone into her own greatness and she is not afraid to graciously offer her wisdom, her talent, her vision to change the world and make it a better place for generations to come.
There are only one thousand Delance Women in the entire world, “an exclusive community of exceptional women who believe in themselves. The very women that Delance was designed to honour, to tell their story and recognise their unique talent”
Judit Polgár, chess grandmaster who is considered the strongest female chess player of all time, Annette Lu Hsiu-lien, the Taiwanese politician who authored “My Fight for a New Taiwan: One Woman's Journey from Prison to Power ” are just few of the women who received the bespoke Delance Watch.
I look at my Delance watch and I know time is not money, but life. I know that nobody can tell me who to be, what to think and where to go next. Most importantly I am aware that I have today to make the difference, so I am writing this article to inspire you.
As Giselle signs my copy of ‘“ Butterfly in a storm”, a quote by Coco Chanel comes to mind: “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”
