On Saturday, 25 March 2017 women from Bavaria, Germany and beyond gathered in Munich to attend the Moving Women Empowerment Conference. The event was organised by the Edtextain e. V. / Sonne Intercultural Magazine.
The day’s programme drew to a close with the Icon Recognition Ceremony. The event hostess and co-founder of Moving Women Empowerment, Sarah Bomkapre Kamara, introduced the session with words which resonated with me. She reminded that everyone is a star. These words were the title of a speech poem “Everyone is a Star” I wrote back in 2013 for an award event in London, which I never got to speak. Instead, I read it to one audience of my husband in a hotel room wearing PJs.
Unaware, I was called to the stage as one of the women to be awarded. So I recalled the speech poem on my phone and read it as a thank you speech.
This moment was lined up so perfectly that I believe the universe and my angels have conspired to my wish that one day I would say “I am an award winning author” and for that I am deeply grateful to the organisers.
