E2 Inspired - Cynthia: Inspiring you to Rise Above

From your PC, laptop or phone every other Wednesday at 12:00

Come and join other members of the E2W community for a virtual chat, meet old and new friends and maintain a strong network. We are welcoming members and non-members to join.

For this week’s E2 Inspired series we welcome our special guest, Cynthia Fortlage.

At the session,

We all face challenges in our lives. Each of us experiences our own struggles; sometimes, it feels more than others. But how we deal with those adversities is what defines us.

Cynthia is a woman who has faced her fair share of adversity. She was born in Northern Ireland and grew up during the Troubles. She was bullied and excluded from social groups. She was told that she would never amount to anything.

But Cynthia didn't let the adversities in her life define her. She refused to give up on her dreams. She worked hard to overcome her challenges. She went on to graduate from university. She got a good job. She started a family. She made a difference in the world.

Cynthia's story is an inspiration to us all. It shows us that we can overcome any obstacle if we set our minds to it. It shows us that we can achieve our dreams no matter what challenges we face.

Join us for a special event to hear Cynthia's story and learn how she overcame adversity to rise above. You will be inspired by her courage and determination. You will leave the event feeling empowered to face your own challenges.
