How excited am I to be working with the fabulous Dr Marina Nani and ensuring that we get the word not just out there but loud and clear about YOU.
From a very young age I struggled with finding my authentic identity, always loud, always proud. At home I was told ‘you can be whoever, whatever you want to be’ at school I was told and made to feel that there was a ceiling attributed to my colour, culture and my heritage.
The signs and the conversations were conflicting. I went to a all girls Grammar School where, the very strict and studious, forever spinster (her words) headmistress told us that we could be captains of Industry, Astronauts, Doctors, CEO’s, Scientists and if she heard any of us claiming that we wanted to be married housewives she would send us home – for good. I believed her – I could be anything. Except when I saw the careers advisor who told me that people like me were mostly needed in the nursing profession or the Hospitality industry. I cried,hard, I didn’t want to be in nursing like most of my family (Windrush generation) I wanted to be in charge. I remember that the post that came from the careers’ advisor was info about Truck driving. You’d like to think I made this up. I haven’t
This propelled me into making decisions based on proving my careers advisor wrong – I became a careers advisor for people with special needs (that’s what they called it then- soon realised that we all had special needs). Strange how life works isn’t it? I became a qualified counsellor because I had a useless one who told me that I had no reason to feel down and I should count my blessings.
There is a whole story in between then (1980’s) and today and some time I’m sure I will tell you all about it, like the time I hung my Pierrot dolls from the balcony (Horror upon horror).
Today I am chair of a local mental health charity, Director of a community gospel choir, a Transformation Master coach, Speaker and a visionary (15 year old Rosie would be so proud of me – in your face Ms Scott )
All of this leads me nicely to tell you how I get invited to speak about authentic living and the dangers (mentally and spiritually) of not doing so. It was at one of these events that I met Marina. Marina’s passion is all about supporting the visionaries, the solutionaries and helping you to realise your Sovereign, Rich and fulfilled living. Boy, do I know all about that. Her strap line and her whole being says ‘My passion is to broadcast your passion’
I have worked in media TV,Radio and print for the last 25 years and truly know the power of getting your story told.
So, when Marina asked I jumped on board. I am here to promote MTN and the many publications we deliver to as many people, groups and organisations as I can. In doing so ,my dear sisters, I will be promoting you too.
After all you are already authentically Sovereign.
