Sarah Ali Choudhury, 4Dorset’s contributing editor, was presented with a WAW Honorary Award and inducted officially into the Hall of Fame on International Women’s Day, 8 March.

She received the award at the prestigious conference gala and dinner of Women Appreciating Women (WAW) at the Holiday Inn, Bloomsbury, London, which involved women from all types of business backgrounds.

WAW is a global movement, established by the visionary Dr Pauline Long, to bring women together to appreciate one another and to support each other without boundaries in business, humanitarian projects, activism, professionally and personally in all aspects of life.

Some of the phenomenal women who have been presented with WAW Honorary Awards include: the First Lady of Jamaica, former Vice President of Zimbabwe Dr Joice Mujuru, veteran Hollywood make-up artist Kim Elba, CEO of Diana Awards Tess Ojo, visionary leader Dr Viola Edward and founder of Ann Frank Trust, Gillian Walness MBE.

Sarah said, “The theme was ‘Unbeatable as a Team’ and I am to be included in the book ‘WAW – 100 Most Inspirational Women In The World’.

“It was a great honour to be presented with the award by Dr Pauline Long and to be at such an inspiring event with women from across the UK and overseas. Listening to the real life experiences and meeting some of these incredible people is literally life changing.”
