20th Soroptimist International Convention
The 20th Soroptimist International Convention in Istanbul certainly lived up all the expectations of a great Convention, but for me the highlights came on Sunday July 12th 2015 with an all inspiring “Public Speaking Showcase”
Fresh ideas and Empowering Women was a theme effortlessly demonstrated by five highly capable young women, aged 18yrs to 22 yrs, setting out on their own paths from different countries across the world.
Our own Flora Garner representing England, Ciara Maguire from the Republic of Ireland, Alana Hughes from Northern Ireland, Rose Lakoro Pitoj from Papua New Guinea and Ton Yan Ru from Singapore were the chosen speakers. They each inspired Soroptimists from around the world with their ambitions, conviction, knowledge and vision for their own lives and those of women and girls.
