Women of Influence, with Kate Meade for ACE Radio.

We are on a mission to find the most incredible women. Some we will know, others are going about their daily lives. Everyone has a story.

She is a CEO, She is a volunteer, She is a TV host, She is a doctor, an educator, a scientist, a leader. She is just getting on with it. What can we learn from her, what’s her message?

Join me to celebrate incredible, inspiring women and shine a great big beacon of light on their stories. Let’s learn from the women that are paving the way for us.

I love to learn and my favourite way is through storytelling. I am curious - absolutely fascinated - with people's stories. I can’t wait to get to KNOW the person in front of me and HOW they got to be where they are today.

Where did they grow up, what gets them excited, why do they do what they do and, when it gets tough… why do they do what they do?

    ABBEY DRINKELL - When words create a work of art.. The Abbey Design

    ABBEY DRINKELL - When words create a work of art.. The Abbey Design

    Abbey Drinkell is our youngest Woman of Influence. She is 10 Years Old.

    Abbey has always been a creative child and not surprising when both sides of her family are creative in various genres singing, performing, music, drawing the list is endless.  Although all these seemed to have skipped me (mum) but they have resulted in a melting pot of creativity for Abbey.

    Abbey has been involved in Primary Performers where she has participated in performances of The Mikado and Beauty and the Beast, done an Animation Class through One Day Studios.

    Abbey's all time passion is drawing and has been for the last 4 years, she draws in both digital and free hand and it is rare to see her without pen and paper or her ipad.

    Abbey hopes to one day create her own tv show and at the moment her drawing leans towards the comic style of illustration.

    To say drawing is an obsession is an understatement and she is constantly striving to better herself.

    Abbey is the designer of the first limited edition Women of Influence T-Shirt.

    Hi Kate. I just thought I would reach out and share my life and recent battle with you. I’m not expecting anything but would put it out there that if you need my story as a reference I would be happy to share. I have just been diagnosed with breast cancer. It is reasonably large(like my boobs) so it is a complete mastectomy of one breast and lymph nodes where it has also been found. Fortunately it hasn’t been detected in any other part of my body. It is very early days. I haven’t begun treatment but the mastectomy is on 22nd July. I don’t have much of a story to tell yet but I hope in the future my journey will help others. And CHECK YOUR BOOBS. Pass the word to all your friends. If something doesn’t feel right, get it checked straight away. Sorry to put it on you but you are in a position to get the word out. Keep up the good work. Love listening to you xo
