Single Mom’s striving for Excellence and Winning!
On June 9th, 2018 myself (Kennishia of Kyree’s Kreations) and Kaann Howden of Little Wish Celebrations held the first ever Single Mom’s Excellence Brunch! The Brunch was nothing short of amazing, actually it was more than a brunch, it was the start of a movement! We laughed, we cried, we discussed the challenges we face, we encouraged each other and bonded in a safe space, a no judgement zone – it was just us, authentically and openly us!
We were extremely grateful to have an amazing panel lineup, Adeela Carter of The Carter Strategy Group, Makini Smith of A Walk in My Stilletoes, Mirlo Liendo an entrepreneur and advocate for women and youth. Siobhan Bent of Mortgages 4 Moms. Catherine Nikkel the owner and primary ghostwriter at Content Ghosts and Nicole O. Salmon a leadership and lifestyle coach who hosted our panel discussion. Our guest speaker for the afternoon was Beverly Kimotho of GTA Thriving Single Moms and Redeem the Time 4 Life.
The Brunch was held at a beautiful bright and open space, decorated with beautiful flowers from Express Yourself Weddings. Stunning balloons from Balloons by Dina. Stationery designed by Castlefield Design and decor elements by Amri Events. Oh and the amazing food was catered by the one, the only Chef Kareema of Taste So Good Catering.
