The embellishment that lights up the ambiance with a bit of jiggle and dazzle from their presence and laughter, women are the supremacy to our very own presence.
I don’t think women would ever have enough justification to define how much they have impacted our society and the new culture that is creeping up, entirely through their marvelous revolution in the community.
Who are women in our community? Their diverse capability and power unleashing from their energy have surpassed any man-made glass ceiling world or concrete jungle judgments. I believe women in our community represent the jazz of light that if it was ever to stop, it would dim the exuberance we live on.
Here are the most successful women in our community that deserve this shimmer of a spotlight!

Chloé Zhao, a filmmaker, is the first Chinese woman and the very first woman of color to be nominated for best director at the Oscars. The Beijing-born director’s intrinsic talent as a novice to capture both the American landscape and those who exist within it has shone through in her films. Zhao, whose father was a steel plant manager and her mother worked in a Chinese hospital, says she attempts to mix Eastern and Western ideologies.
Nomadland, the third film by Beijing-born filmmaker Chloé Zhao, has risen as the film to conquer this awards season.
She became the first Asian woman to win the best director at the Golden Globes in March and the very first woman of color to be nominated for best director at the Oscars.
Chloé Zhao is the visionary director behind Nomadland, the moving tale of a widow who travels the American West in search of a better, freer existence, which won two Golden Globes in February 2021 and is sure to win more. That being said, some people might be acquainted with Zhao’s previous work or how her life colored the films she makes today.
Chloé Zhao’s previous three films were smaller, quite personal stories, clearly depicting how her filming techniques, especially her use of natural light and extreme closeups of her subjects, have influenced her work. All three of Chloé Zhao’s films are featuring people who live on the periphery of mainstream society and are often marginalised by the world. This isn’t a coincidence, as the award-winning producer has lived her whole life with the sense of being more of an outsider.
