I did it!

Masters Degree Ceremony at Ely Cathedral

I am proud to tell you  that I after three long years I completed and passed my MA in English Literature!

The ceremony was at the beautiful Open University venue of Ely Cathedral in Cambridgeshire – the cathedral is amazing and the grounds were magnificient – and to top it all off, it was a lovely, hot, sunny day!

 

I thank all my friends and family who helped me to attend and those also who supported me throughout the journey, and also all my students and fans who never let me forget my own catchphrase ‘If I can do it, anyone can!’- so I had to do it!

Life is a bed of roses – only roses do have thorns – you have to learn to lean on the people who love you, have faith and keep going, no matter how tough it gets.

All Women’s Day and the lady Mayor Elizabeth Kangethe!

I was a guest speaker at Dagenham Library celebrating ALL WOMEN’S DAY where I read extracts from my books and talked about what inspired me to become an author. It was a wonderful day with so many astounding women talking about their various enterprises and achievements – in particular the esteemed lady Mayor of Barking and Dagenham herself Elizabeth Kangethe who was interested in ARTY TARDY! What an inspirational lady she is!
