On Saturday 9th October 2010 my fellow students and myself attended The Great Hall at the University of Leeds to receive our Foundation Degree awards. This emotional occasion was the culmination of our previous two year's of study and a particular highlight for me was to receive my award from the broadcaster Harry Gration.

I was delighted and honoured to win a Student Award at Leeds City College's awards ceremony in June 2010. This was the Overall Student of the Year for the Beauty & Complementary Therapies Department at Thomas Danby Campus. This was in recognition of my outstanding achievement on the Foundation Degree in Complementary Therapies programme. The event took place at Leeds Town Hall on 24th June 2010 and was hosted by writer, poet and broadcaster Ian McMillan.

I was delighted to be presented with the ABDN Female Entrepreneur of the Year 2009 award at the Asian Business Network's 11th Annual Award dinner at the Royal Armouries last week. Averil Frederick of the Milun Centre nominated me for the award and Simon Brereton of the Sharing the Success (LEGI) team, who presented me with the award on the night, spoke of my drive and determination and the challenges I had overcome to achieve my success. The evening was hosted by Kulvinder Ghir of Goodness Gracious Me and the Kumars at No 42 who kept us all entertained as you can imagine!
Back in January I was invited to attend the LEGI dinner at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Leeds where Carl Hopkins, the Secret Millionaire, both inspired and entertained us in equal measure. Myself and three other local female entrepreneurs, Lyndsay Din and Siobhan Thomas have all utilised the service of the Local Enterprise Growth Initiative and we were invited along as three of the organisations success stories of the past year.
In October last year I embarked on my studies for the Foundation Degree in Complementary Therapies with Teesside University. Although this has not been easy so far it has made my practice much more diverse as I am now able to offer an even higher standard of service to my clients along with a wider range of bodywork techniques. These include acupressure and meridian techniques, ayurvedic techniques, no hands massage and hot stone therapy. Visit my website at http://www.rayoflight.me.uk/ to find out more.
I am now also offering on site therapies for the corporate sector as well as events and parties. I can also deliver workshops or presentations to your company or organisation on any aspect of complementary therapies that might interest you such as a reiki healing workshop, a talk on crystals or some simple massage techniques.
