I am thrilled to announce that I have been invited by a girls' school buzzing with creative and academic vitality to inspire at their International Womens Day event. I will be alongside the CEO of Women For Women, Brita Fernandez-Schmidt and Paralympian, Wendy Smith.
The school had spotted me previosuly in the press and wnated to get me to share my unusual and inspiring story saying the audience of students, media, parents and governors were sure to take something away from it. I will also be singing a song from Handel's Opera, Semele and If I Loved You from Carousel.
I will be looking to do more for the community in terms of sharing my story for inspiration and strength.
Below you can find the upcoming event in the press and a larger version in the right column.

Footwear Today is one f the world's oldest footwear magazines for the industry. Packed with trends, forecasts and industry knowldege.
When I was approached by them after winning my prime minister endorsed award, I was pleased to hear that they wanted to feature my work as according to them it doesn't just relate to my footwear work, but doing good elsewhere!

I was emailed earlier this week with a lovely message from one of the Country's leading Bridal Magazines for the Asian Market. They sent me a screen shot of my Bollywood shoes featured in their magazine under the stag and Hen section. They were sad that they hadn't noticed the shoes earlier, otherwise they would have been featured in the main section! Still a lovely mention.

This really is an honour and to be honest, there are far more inspiring and aspiring women out there than myself. Though none the less, last night, I received an invite from Pinky Linani OBE last night to join her invitation only and exclusive, Women of the Future Network.
The Women of the Future Network (previously Inspirational Women’s Network) is an exclusive network of high potential and high achieving UK women. The network was created in 2007 and includes some of the UK’s most pioneering and talented women. *Thier words - not mine!
Thank you for this.
