Six Brown Chicks, 50 Most Wanted:Women of Distinction

Imagine my surprise a few days ago when I was notified that I had been selected as one Six Brown Chicks, “50 Most Wanted: Women of Distinction”! I didn’t even know I was up for the award! Myself as well as 50+ other women were selected by an anonymous all male professional panel.

The diverse background of all the honorees was so inspiring. It truly was a great event and such an honor to be an honoree. There is nothing better than being recognized for all your hard work; to be chosen out of more than 1200+ nominees was nothing short of amazing. Perhaps the best feeling is being supported by others! I was so happy to see quite a few of my friends made the list as well.

Check out a few pictures from the event below:
