By: Heidi Powell-Prera, Photographer/Journalist

On April 14, we were invited guests of the 3rd annual Women to Watch International awards program. Five outstanding women were presented with awards recognizing their unique achievements. The Lifetime Achievement Award went to Mia K. Wright. Tsunami Awards went to Abby Hamden, Kay Makishi, Sonita Sidonia Lewis, and Carla Jackson.

Keynote speaker for the event was the best-selling author, international motivational speaker and renowned wellness expert who has travelled to 50 states, 51 countries and six continents helping people to become healthier, Ms. Donna Richardson Joyner.

Donna is the only council member who served under President Bush and President Obama on the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition. She has been invited by President Donald Trump to serve on the President’s Council Foundation Board. She was an ambassador for First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move Initiative.” Donna has starred in over 25 award winning videos including best-selling “Buns of Steel” which sold over 10 million copies. She starred in best- selling videos ESPN, Nike, Sweating in the Spirit, Body Gospel and her own line of videos. From “Buns of Steel” to “Tiny House on Wheels,” Donna continues to be a strong leader and innovator.

Donna is a TV Contributor for CNN, MSNBC, FOX, ABC, TBN and other networks. She was the producer and host of “The Donna Richardson’s Mind, Body and Spirit Show,” and the “The Sweating in the Spirit Show” on the Word Network. She also was the former co-host of the ESPN Fitness Pros Show” and wellness expert for NBC “Today Show.”

Entertainment was provided by Ricky Davis, “The Classic Man,” and Mona Moore, gospel recording artist.

All in all, it was a lovely Sunday afternoon, and we left inspired by these outstanding ladies and Ms. Joyner. We look forward to working with Women to Watch International in the future.
