I was absolutely thrilled to be the MC for the 2016 Women of the World (WOW) Festival in Katherine. It’s the third time the national festival has been held in Katherine and it was filled to the brim with inspiring speakers, interesting panels, stunning creativity and lively debate.

The WOW Festival is a global festival originating at London’s Southbank Centre that celebrates the formidable strength and inventiveness of girls and women. Since its launch in 2011, WOW Festivals have taken place around the world, facilitating discussions about challenges for women in Cardiff (Wales), Alexandria (Egypt), Hargeisa (Somaliland), New York (USA), Karachi (Pakistan), Dhaka (Bangledesh) and elsewhere.

I thoroughly enjoyed MCing this year’s event and thank the organisers for having me involved.
