“I am attending Lift Effects Extraordinary Lady Speaks Conference and STAR Awards Ceremony on 17 June 2017”-Muzvare Betty Makoni

I am so excited to announce that I will be attending Lift Effects Extraordinary Lady Speaks Conference and STAR Award Ceremony on 17 June 2017. Shhhhh but I have to say this is five days before my birthday and so when you meet me please say happy birthday lol.  This is an event I would never miss as it comes at a time when I want to be inspired and share inspiration. If you have not done so please register and get your tickets on www.lifteffects.org. All information is on this website.

Right, some more information I would like to share is about the Founder and CEO of Lift Effects, Sandra Nelson. She is an amazing woman who through leadership and exemplary living as a Christian has dedicated her life to supporting the empowerment of women. She is a Deaconess for her church but out here in the world, she is an inspiring woman leader gifted with calmness, love, passion, and generosity. Sandra does all in her capacity to give something and no matter how big or small. She is a great listener and so during this conference, she listens to every woman. There is something for me o emulate through her leadership style.

Last time I attended Lift Effects I wore the wrong colour of the dress. Honestly, ladies, there is a time one has to dress up and lift their head up and just be confident. My red top and black skirt betrayed everything. Dress code is green. I have seen green mixed with white. It is a colour that when it comes together it shows life in its fullness.

I was honoured to present an award to the overall winner.  That was an honour.

And to our charity Girl Child Network Worldwide, Sandra Nelson donated. This year she chose us as her favourite charity. We are so delighted.

Your Story Matters Event in London- About meeting Ash White

I get the honour to be invited to speak at many events in UK and worldwide.  Your Story Matterswww.yourstorymatters.com  Speaking Event as in the flier below was just a unique event for me.

I met women of substance  at Your Story matters on 24 September 2016, who shared inspiring stories and one of them was Ash White. Did you hear what she thought about me? Below is her story and hope it inspires you. I was inspired by Ash`s story too.

 Ash just reminded me to make it urgent to meet women like her. I have assisted thousands of women and girls all my life and what Ash wrote as a testimony on my speech let me wanting to inspire more. Thank you Ash. Please enjoy the story below by none other than her:

I have never met anybody like Muzvare-Princess Betty Makoni before. What a precious jewel! This was my first speaking engagement and I was mind blown that I got to speak alongside women so influential! I never imagined that the Lord would open such a door so soon! Thank you again Rhoda Harriet Khataba

Muzvare explained about when she received the official royal title of Muzvare and that it means ‘Her Royal Highness-The Princess’. She explained that when you address her as Muzvare you address the whole community including her husband who people tend to forget about as he is not in the spotlight. What a beautiful display of honour!

This lady is a world renowned gender activist and her STORY will have you in tears!! She became an orphan at 8 or 9 after her mother was beaten to death so she became the parent to her 6 siblings straight away. What a strong woman, a phenomenal woman phenomenally. There is so much more to Muzvare’s inspiring story than what I have said so please look her up and check out her 600 page book ‘Never Again’.

Of all the things that Muzvare said that blessed me yesterday there are 2 things she DID that ministered to me personally:

1. She cried- When she broke down talking about how her young brother was drowned. I cried too and felt further release from my own pain. I was always told I was too sensitive when I was younger and to see such a pillar of strength break down in tears moved me so much and gave me permission to cry also.

2. She affirmed me!! Muzvare took notes on all of the speakers and had a message for all of us individually and she said to me ‘My sister, we believe you’. All I could say was ‘thank you’ while tears streamed down my face.

You don’t know how much I wanted to be believed for years, always felt I had to fight to be heard while the truths of my life were hidden.

All the speakers stories left me with something but Muzvare…I really was in the presence of royalty and could feel it from when she first walked into the room.
