I feel like I am a little bit empowered

Hello everyone,

From the book Thank You for Being Late by Thomas Friedman.

But I had to ask: “What’s it like for you—parking attendant by day, Web activist by night—to have your own global blog, while sitting in Washington and reaching people in thirty countries”—even if the numbers are small?“I feel like I am a little bit empowered at this time,” Bojia answered without hesitation. “These days I kind of regret that I wasted my time. I would have started some three or four years ago, and not sent stuff here and there.

Can we say that "empowered" mean "inspired" in this context?
Thank you.
