So I was nominated for The Power of A Woman award and I won!
The brand new, annual Awards ceremony celebrates the achievements of phenomenal black women in the UK. It showcases the achievements of black women who demonstrate exemplary passion, perseverance and determination by crashing through barriers, breaking boundaries, blazing trails, and setting new precedents and trends across sectors.
Do you know how good this win feels? I always say a nomination confirms that you’ve made someone smile, laugh or think, and that’s a good thing.
The Power of A Woman awards were created in memory of the Founder’s late mother. Freddie Nwaka told the emotional story of his mother Angela Nwaka who for personal reasons had to put him in care at a young age and whilst this had an impact on him. Fred and his mother repaired their relationship and spent time together which gave him an insight to his mother’s strength and the challenges she face. What a powerful thing.
Congratulations to all the nominees and winners!
