Dr Uchenna Okoye; the clinical director of the London Smiling Dental Group and official dentist of Channel 4 TV programme; ‘10 Years Younger’ dropped by to tell us why the I’mPOSSIBLE conversation appeals so much to her.
What interested you to take part in the I’mPOSSIBLE conversation?
It’s a great idea, an opportunity to share and also encourage other women. There’s not many forums like this in the UK for women, certainly not for women of colour. A fabulous idea!
What are you most looking forward to about the event?
Hearing what others have to say, brainstorming ideas, inspiring and being inspired.
What do you hope the audience will take away from the event?
That ANYTHING is possible. No short cuts, the bottom line is focus and hard work. Women need to support each other more, as no matter how successful we are, we all have the same issues. For instance; I am eating cake right now; I’m supposed to be on a diet so I have failed – eek! But, tomorrow is another day and I will start again .
Who on the panel are you most looking forward to meeting/ sharing ideas with?
Everyone! A diverse panel with different backgrounds and I am sure different stories to tell. Really looking forward to learning from everyone.
The February edition of the I’mPOSSIBLE conversation supported by Pearson plc. is part of a series of intimate events staged in central London where a panel of British women of colour, from all walks of life, come together, to share their stories on the theme of ‘how I became POSSIBLE.’ It’s a purely inspirational and empowering event which gives a platform for British women of colour an opportunity to share their journey on how they became POSSIBLE with no interruptions or apologies.
