Today we are putting your talent as a photographer aside and talking about another passion project that you champion .... #SHE INSPIRES
“I love my life. Drawing inspiration from the extraordinary people around me is how I live the sparkly life of my dreams.”
It’s an annual initiative aimed at getting women to tell their stories of courage, kindness and generosity and inspire the women around them.
During International Women’s Month, the people of Harpenden nominate inspirational women in their midst and then vote for them. The People’s Choice is announced at the end of the month. pennybird and camera gifts a series of portraits to the winner to showcase their acts.
I started this initiative three years ago when I realised my mother genuinely didn’t have any idea of how many lives she had positively influenced during her lifetime as a dance teacher. It made me realise that everyone inspires people around them, but most don’t realise the impact of what they do. I want to change that.
I absolute adore meeting these incredible women, hearing, and learning from their stories. It’s so uplifting to discover them and realise we stand amongst such amazing humans.
