We have had hugely positive and complimentary feedback and comments, which is greatly appreciated. Just one example as follows:
Thank you for the invitation to the launch and for letting me be a part of your project. I thoroughly enjoyed the launch yesterday evening: it was well attended & very professionally carried out A feather in your and your team’s cap. Keep it up.

A special mention goes to our esteemed guest speaker – Dr Norman Rosenthal and his enlightening presentation on ‘Migrant Women Finding the Gift of Adversity’. Norman was the inspiration for this launch event and is owed a huge thank you for that.
It was such a fantastic setting in Regent’s University, both inside and outside (our grateful thanks to them for everything) and the weather was perfect. Many stayed until 8.30pm and there was a lot of good social conversation and introductions taking place. We have seen wonderful pictures of those who visited the beautiful Regent’s Park and the cafe afterwards.
Migrant Woman Magazine Launch Photos:
We can now see that Migrant Woman is more than a magazine. It is the beginning of building a growing community of shared interests, aspirations and making useful connections. We had such a variety of nationalities attending and it was interesting to note that many describe themselves as British and their country of origin. Not only that but you absolutely looked the part of aspirational and successful migrant people representing high level positions, CEOs, directors, business owners, artists, doctors, psychologists, as some examples. We were also graced with the presence of the Mayor of Barking & Dagenham Council and the Albanian Ambassador.
A good number were also magazine contributors, as writers, or in an interview. And nationalities / mother countries included Chile, Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, Asian, Albania, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Spain, and France.
