June Sarpong Interview

This blog forms part of the Throwback series of blogs. In 2018 my blog malfunctioned and many of my posts disappeared from the web. At the time I was still recovering from my breast cancer ordeal and just didn’t have the heart to repost them. Now, I am in a much better place, I have decided since I know these blogs are helping others, they must be reinstated. This was originally posted in March 2018.

Taking questions from the audience

So this night is best told in photographs. I cannot express to you how elated I feel after interviewing June Sarpong. She was so warm and accommodating. It truly felt like I was having a chat with a friend. Well done to Sandy Joseph and all the organisers for curating such a fun and important event. June I wish you every success with Diversify – it’s a book everyone serious about creating a diverse world, should read.

A full house, pregnant with questions
Many women spoke about how they could relate to issues brought up in the book
