Newry Chamber International Women’s Day 2021

Time :

Watch the recording of our IWD 2021 event with our incredible Guest Speaker, Deborah Somorin ACA as we celebrate International Women’s Day 2021.

Listen to her incredible personal and inspirational story of resilience, managing diversity and achieving her personal ambition of becoming a Chartered Accountant.

Deborah was born in the UK and raised in both London and Lagos, Nigeria. At the age of 10 she moved to Naas, Co. Kildare with her mother and younger siblings.

By 13 she was homeless, pregnant at 14, lost her mother tragically at 16, yet went on to achieve her Masters in Accountancy at 22. At the age of 24, she achieved her Chartered Accountancy Exams at the first attempt.

Following her appearance on RTE’s Late Late Show in 2018, she established the charity, Empower the Family, with the mission to support disadvantaged young people to successfully complete their University Education.

In her short career, she has received multiple awards for her social entrepreneurship and humanitarian work. In 2020, she was named on the prestigious international Forbes “Under 30 List” for her social entrepreneurship and humanitarian work.

Be inspired by Deborah’s remarkable story.
