Today is International Women’s Day, and plenty of our favorite stars are taking to social media to share exactly what the occasion means to them.

Georgina Burke, a two-time SI Swimsuit star, offered up a few thoughts on Instagram on Friday that we think are definitely worth repeating. The Australian model shared a reel of red carpet footage of herself clad in a mint green strapless dress by Alex Perry complete with a bustier-style bodice and sweetheart neckline. In addition to showing off her glowy and glam look from a prior SI Swimsuit event, Burke offered up some reflections on her own personal growth.

“If only we could all go back in time and tell ourselves that we can and we will!” she wrote. “The growth of my journey still surprises me, but I want to show what's possible with a little belief and surrounding yourself with boss women. Anything can happen!”

Burke set her video montage to “I Am Woman” by Emmy Meli, and continued further: “Take it from someone who moved from schools due to heavy bullying by other girls and who is forever pitted against other women in the competitive fashion industry, remember there is enough room for everyone, and when you win, we all win! We just need to keep coming together and lighting the way for the next generation of women.”

Plenty of Burke’s 171,000 followers clearly resonated with her message, as they chimed in to the comments section with support.

“You are such a perfect example of radiating beauty from the inside your attitude and positivity 😊,” one person noted.

“Amen, Geo! Lift each other up!👏👍😍,” someone else cheered.
