One word summed up the feedback following the SIP Talks: Stories Inspire Passion event recently held at Mary Hall: wow!

As 13 speakers spoke passionately about their life journeys, the audience embraced the spirit of the event. Although each talk was different, the messages offered were inspirational: embrace your inner child and let it shine, see risk taking as an opportunity, celebrate one’s uniqueness, find beauty in things and people around you, and allow passion to find you.

SIP Talks: Stories Inspire Passion created a buzz throughout the community by those who attended. Natasha Bergman, a Grade 12 L.V. Rogers student who attended the event, remarked “It is inspiring to see a room full of women with a lifetime of stories come together to listen and share their experiences. As a young woman just entering the world, I was honoured to hear and learn from these adventurous, inspiring individuals. It was an event I won’t soon forget.”

Lois Arnesen, charter member of Canadian Federation of University Women commented: “The event flowed very well from one stage to the next; the atmosphere was festive. Oh yes, the speakers, they told us personal stories besides what inspired them.”

The evening culminated with a musical performance by Sophie MP and Amanda Cawley, Selkirk College music students, our next generation of inspiring young women.

The CFUW Nelson and District Club expresses its gratitude to the community for attending and supporting local scholarships for young women. One doesn’t have to go far to see and appreciate the valuable human resources right here in the Kootenays.
