I’d like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to attend the Girl Shaped Flames talk. I attended the session hosted by Sonia McDonald. This was a wonderful talk. Sonia is a great public speaker, she was very interactive with the audience, and gave wonderful practical advice which I  was able to immediately implement into my life. Thank you so much for the opportunity to attend the event. Very much appreciated.
