Make It Happen

Empower Yourself And Make Your Dream A Reality

· entrepreneurship,women's rights

Dreams come to us in many forms, but they don't become our reality unless we make it happen! How can we do this? We do so by taking steps in the direction that feels right to us, we find the path that works best for us and that we feel guided to pursue. And most of all, we strive to keep going, even if we are unsure of where it might lead. I never sought out to write a book or become a published author, but then came an opportunity to do so with Golden Brick Road Publishing House for a co-authored book titled, I'm 30, Now What?! Initially, I didn't know or think I had much to offer, but as I went through the writing process, I came to realize that we ALL have our own amazing story to tell. What excites me the most however are all the amazing opportunities that have come about in my life as a result of being an author.

Full disclosure: I love being in front of people. I have been public speaking (for fun) since grade five and acting on stage since grade seven, and to this very day, I love doing both. I get this surge of nerves, excitement and of course an adrenaline rush which occurs right before I get on stage - and that, my friends, is my favorite kind of high. Last week, I was asked to be a part of a fundraiser for a shelter in Toronto that helps women escape domestic violence. I was asked not only to donate a few books towards the cause but also to be one of their guest speakers. This was the first time I was asked to be a part of an event, and I didn't go looking for it! What's interesting to note is when our book was initially released, the proceeds went to UNWomen, which is also a similar but international cause, so I was elated to be a part of something directly in my community. Doing what I love while serving my community?! YES PLEASE!

When I was trying to pick a topic to speak about at the event, I decided to choose female empowerment. I feel like in today's socio-cultural climate, women need to be reminded how amazing and empowered we are and can be. This is also a theme throughout my book, I'm 30, Now What?! It's about women having choices, which I completely align with. As a woman always striving to empower myself and those around me, I wholeheartedly believe that WE CAN DO AND BE ANYTHING. This event was about getting women back on their feet. It was full of great music, dancing, and eating delicious food! It was put on by an event planning company called Nic Nacs Events, as this particular shelter once housed the founder, Nathalyee. I didn't know this until she spoke about it and I couldn't believe it! This woman is a force to be reckoned with! She just had her FIFTH child, started this her event planning and catering business not that long ago, and still made sure she was able to give back to a place that helped her rise up. Now, that is empowering!

I sat in awe of this strong woman and felt ever so thankful for our introduction to eachother. I was there to empower and speak to these women, but listening to Nathalyee share her story, and seeing what she has done for herself and her community was monumental. You know how people say you are the best of the five people you surround yourself with? Yeah, she's one of those people you want to surround yourself with!

For more information and to be a part of next year's event contact Nathalyee at info.nicnatsevents@yahoo.com or go to www.nicnatseventscatering.com
