e14th successful gathering

030WILLEMSTAD - The 14th Annual Women Conference in Curaçao: 'About Legacy and Female Leadership' was another successful gathering of people who want to move forward in life with what is available, who know that there is much more to have and who are willing to work on relationships to achieve their goals.

The conference took place in the Willemstad Room at the Curaçao Hilton Hotel and started on both days with body work to be ready for the whole experience.

Day starter was Victoria Wild followed by Master of Ceremony Alba Chatlein LL.M.

Initiator and organizer Reyna Joe welcomed those present and encouraged them to use this forum to work on relationships and not to just network. 'In the end we all must have our story to tell and real relationships to share it with'.

Conference advisor since the beginning sister Norma Angel PhD, MM asked the participants to know why they were at the conference and to understand that it does not make a difference where they are from. She then lighted the conference light to have the official beginning of the conference.

The next part of the conference was the Outstanding Woman Award Ceremony that recognized the work done by the late Mrs. May Henriquez that strengthened the language of Papiamentu and contributed to making it a strong communication tool.

The tremendous speakers were anthropologist drs. Su Girigori from Curaçao, Ivonne Pinedo LL.M. from Miami, Florida and mental health expert Kenneth Cuvalay from St. Eustatius who shared their views on legacy by sharing their experience on how to be ready to tell your story or to have your story told.

There were also two additional presentations by beautician Chantal Vogelland from The Netherlands and general practitioner dr. Justine Heyden from Curaçao, both gave more popular female knowledge and information that was well received based on the amount of questions for them.

The closing of the conference on Sunday was with the circle work giving participants the opportunity to reach more into themselves.
