Hello everybody, so I feel it is time that I talk about Saturday just gone. For those of youwho do not know I was asked by the wonderful Donna Kennedy to talk at the Womens Empowerment Summit, which is an amazing day that brings women together to empower each other. Donna only asks the top speakers to talk at this event, people who are regarded as experts in the world of empowerment. Some even had to come from different parts of the country. To be considered as a top speaker was a real boost to my confidence.
I had prepared a really good speech and on the day itself I was more excited and proud at coming so far. When I arrived the room was packed. I think I began to get a bit nervous because I was bursting to use the loo and went every 5 seconds, I was like a yoyo 😁. After lunch it was my turn to take to the stage and I began walking up with Patrick, Donna Kennedy and Pat Slattery behind me. As I was waiting to go on stage, my heart began racing. I started breathing heavily. I was nervous, more nervous than I have ever been, but I felt ready. Standing up on stage as I presented myself to the audience I looked at every single person, and took it all in. Then, I began my speech.
Even though my speech was already created a few days beforehand, I wanted it to seem more natural, and so I made sure that I gave out all my energy. I could see the women in attendance gave their beautiful energy back in reply. This was such a powerful feeling. Towards the end of my presentation everyone stood up and sang along with the song that I had put on, and then came the moment that I will never forget, everyone began chanting my name. I have no words to describe how I felt in that moment. All I can say is that standing there on the stage, witnessing that reaction by the audience, I was blown away. As I walked back to my seat, women began hugging me, in tears, and thanked me for my presentation, and inspirational and empowering strength. I felt so overwhelmed. I sat down on my seat at the back of the room and could not stop the tears rolling down my face. When Patrick looked at me I had two black eyes from my mascara running 😁 I felt incredible. I was so tired and wanted to lie down, as I thought “This is exhausting work” I am so proud of myself and I’m proud of Patrick too. We are a team. He is the best 😁
We met wonderful people, and people who want to work with me in the future 😁 This one event has opened up a world of opportunity to me now. Thank you so much to everyone who has believed in me so much and always saw the best in me. 😁😁😁😁
I am truly so happy and grateful. It was just amazing day. Then, I had my Nanny’s party that night. Brilliant!! 😁😁😁😁
