This was a truly inspirational evening. I was invited to be part of a panel of women as a guest speaker. A panel of ordinary women who had achieved and done extraordinary things.
They stated that "Our Inspirational woman of the day is - Dr Erinma Bell MBE, She's a peace activist, the 1st woman ever to have her sculpture in Manchester Town Hall, she was awarded an MBE for voluntary services to the community. She is the subject of the opening chapter of Prime Minister Gordon Brown's book and is recognised as one of the most influential people in Greater Manchester." The other women on the panel were Hannah Miraftab a professional dentist with her own dentist practice, Kiln Lane Dental - plus she was also on Real Housewives of Cheshie; Zoya Imtiaz - founder of Angelic Desserts and Winners at the Asian Wedding Awards 2018 - ; Mari Rostern - leading expert in skincare, owner of Bloomstr, Specialist in Environ Treatment; Misba Khan - member of an all women expedition team to the North Pole and Winner of Rising Star Award 2018; Fatimah Vadia -professional make-up artist and nominee of British Muslim award 2018.
Hannah chased her dream of wanting to own her own dentist practice and has finally achieved it by age of 20. Zoya Imtiaz discovered her passion of baking at age of 16 and now at the age of 18 has her own business called Angelic Delights. Mari Rostern has a love for skin, skin without make-up and aimed to show people how healthy and good their skin can look without make-up and she does just that. Misba Khan was truly amazing. She climbed Mount Everest with an all female crew (including the film crew) in temperatures of -38 Degrees! Faimah Vadia resigned from her architectural job to follow her dream of make-up artistry. She is now spear heading the campaign #beautyiseveryonecampaign. After hearing the stories from the women on the panel each Women took away jewels of knowledge, wisdom and overstanding to enable them to move forwards and upwards in their businesses or lives.
