Rise & Shine Queen!

‘And Still I Rise’ is the famous poem by Maya Angelou. Have you read it? It’s a reminder that no matter what we’ve gone through, we can still rise. We’ve read it at one, or two, of our previous conferences. For me and many others, the pandemic hasn’t been the only challenge that brought us low, and left us wanting to rise.

Yep, that’s right Rise and Shine.

Then I thought, it’s the Queen’s platinum jubilee. Although, I’m certainly not a royalist, I still think it worth commemorating because it reminds me of the queen within me. And there we have the theme for The Women Like Me L&B Conference 2022… Rise & Shine Queen.

The message to remember for today is:

Don’t be deterred by failure; redefine failure.
