The Every Woman Inspired (EWI) Expo was an opportunity I felt I couldn’t ignore. EWI 2013 allowed me to work alongside and spend quality time with some remarkable women: Rasheda ‘Ginger’ Malcolm, Patricia McKenzie-Thomas and Marcia ‘Culture’ Gordon. These generous, humble, beautiful yet incredibly powerful women created an event that provided me with a life changing experience; the type that is etched in your memory for the rest of your life!

I had the opportunity to deliver my workshop entitled ‘The Return To Princess, Wonder Woman & Goddess
~ Exploring The Powerful Female Within Us’
. This was a writing and personal development workshop which produced phenomenal results. I also recited some of my published poetry at the launch/opening event of ‘Every Woman Inspired’.

The expo also attracted the likes of the current Miss Jamaica UK Gemma Feare, a remarkable, talented and very inspirational young woman who delivered a powerful keynote speech.

A full Jamaican breakfast slowly digesting in my tummy. The tropical rainfall has stopped and the sun is now doing what it is meant to be doing. Yay!

I am here now in Montego Bay, Jamaica, preparing to head to Kingston for what aims to be a fabulous three day expo: The ‘Every Woman Inspired’ Expo, 22-24 November 2013, Alhambra Inn & Restaurant, Kingston, Jamaica.

Hope to see you there!
