In observance of International Women’s Day, Women Across Borders – Rising from the Ashes has launched its book on Amazon with free downloads.
This is the third anthology that will be launched by Guyanese fashion icon, Sonia Noel. Women Across Borders – Filling Purpose and With a Mission was launched last year with co-authors from Africa, France, Suriname, Venezuela, USA and Guyana. The anthology will be at a special price for the rest of Women’s History Month.
Women Across Borders – Rising from the Ashes is an anthology featuring 11 courageous women, who will give us a front row seat to part of their journeys. Life sometimes throw you a curve that puts you in the valley and you may ask why me? Why not you? In life we have season and we need to celebrate every stage.
These women from different parts of the world rose from the valley and climbed back to the mountain top. Their stories will motivate you and encourage you: no matter what challenges us, we all can rise from the deepest valley, our mountain top awaits.
“In order to rise from its own ashes, a phoenix first must burn.” ? Octavia Butler, Parable of the Talents.
Some of the co-authors shared their inspiring journeys at INSPIRE YOU at the Pegasus on Sunday last.
The co-authors from Guyana are Walerine Mc Leod, Renneann Hodge, Sherri Garraway and Dr Colleen Bovell. The others co-authors are Dr Safeefa Mohammed (Trinidad), Lynette Laveau Saxe (Massachusetts, USA), Hilda Bournes (Mississippi, USA), Shanon Paar (Arizona, USA), Jaymie Bowles, Phillipa Morrish, and Sylvia Ward.
“I encourage people to tell their stories and admire these women who are not afraid to be vulnerable while sharing their journeys to motivate others,” Noel stated.
How to write and publish your book workshop will be hosted in April. Maya Angelou said “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you”.
