Last weekend, I was nominated and honored to receive the 2017 Powerful in Pink award. The event is a breast cancer awareness fundraiser that honored outstanding women in the community and breast cancer survivors.
This amazing event was created by Crown Capital Group. If you know me, then you know I fully support positive events or forums that are able to bring creatives and forward-thinking people together. If I wasn’t nominated, I would have supported this event for that reason alone. It was powerful, as the name suggest, to see the strength of women who have fought or are fighting breast cancer. It was equally powerful to meet and speak with the other women who were nominated as outstanding women of the community. I think as women, sometimes we’re reluctant to celebrate our achievements and strength. Personally for me, I have a difficult time acknowledging success because I don’t feel successful. It’s refreshing to know that others see your work and appreciate it. It was truly humbling and an honor to be recognized. Many thanks to Terrence Armand.
