This past Sunday May 20, 2018, I had the pleasure of being the panel moderator at the Mommy & Mimosas event hosted by Nisha Hopkins, of Pretty in Power Coaching Agency and the Mogul Mom Society. The day was filled with sisterhood, a dynamic panel, good food, vendors and of course mimosas. The women were able to share, ask questions engage each other and learn from one another.
The panel included women who were entrepreneurs, authors, professionals all of them moms. The panelist and guest were able to engage a variety of topics and questions from dating as a single mom, to how to support your partner while you both chase your dreams. There were also moms in attendance who has lost children, and they too opened up and shared their stories as well.
The event started with speaker Raven Kay founder of She Who Wins Movement. The panel included Keyonda Pyles, from the blog arealurbanmom.com, Kenyetta Watkins of Just Like You Inc., a mentoring program for teen parents and high school students. Shenita Hurt, author of Divorced, Now What? and founder of ReNewHer LLC., Dominique Williams, author and empowerment speaker and of course the visionary and host Nisha Hopkins.
Nisha did a fantastic job of celebrating moms but also creating an atmosphere of sisterhood and an environment conducive to support, encouragement and growth. Even though I am not a mom, I could still relate to the issues and struggles that many of the women faced. The conversation flowed, the mimosas flowed and at times the tears flowed. It was an amazing day and a get demonstration of how African American women can come together, support, uplift and encourage each other. Nisha’s next mommy event coming October 2018.
