I am honored to receive the “Woman of Action” Award from Canada!

A celebration of women honours me as a “Woman of Action”. Thank you for this award for female leaders but I would like to dedicate it to those mentioned who trusted in my ability and ” took that leap to an open mind”. Thank you. You made me want to be me to inspire. Xxxooo Cecilia
