WOMEN WHO INSPIRE US in all areas of life - Anna Hemmings, guest speaker on June 9th. At the peak of Anna's career she faced chronic fatigue syndrome. Never giving up hope was fundamental because "when you give up hope you lose everything. I used my dreams and ambitions of competing again at the World Championships and Olympic Games to keep my spirits up and inspire me. Even in the worst times and moments you can always chose and have control over your attitude" It was this attitude that pushed Anna to achieving her 4th, 5th and 6th World Championship title!!
Empowering women politically, economically and emotionally are key to changing the mentality towards women in developed and developing societies and creating an environment that ensures women are appropriately supported.
