Award: Sonne Woman of Excellence in Literature
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.
