The mining town of Linden welcomed the Living with Intention motivational tour with great enthusiasm.The four-time bestselling author/Impresario, Sonia Noel was right in her element doing what she does best, which is to inspire.On Sunday last, she was asked by Pastor Selwyn Sills to give brief remarks at his church Praise Tabernacle AOG. Later in the afternoon, Francine Major hosted a book signing ceremony for Living with Intention at Major’s banquet hall. Mayor of Linden, Waneka Arrindell and former Mayor Carwyn Holland were present at the event.In addition, Holland read an excerpt from the book while sharing how much he has been personally inspired over the years by the work of the Guyanese fashion icon.The highlight of the tour were visits to schools in the mining town. Noel visited the St Aiden’s, Christianburg and Amelia’s Ward Primary schools.While there, she encouraged the children to be intentional about their next move and even if they do not get into one of the top schools, they all possess greatness.She was also thrilled to meet Stephon Campbell, a young child who has an icicle business and shows a strong sense of entrepreneurship. While meeting the young man, she reminisced that as a young girl, she sold plantain chips, sugar cake and pastries to assist her mother due to financial constraints.During the visits at the schools, the children were very interactive and receptive. In addition, Noel met with the students of six secondary schools who assembled at the Lichas Hall.Vanessa Kissoon, a former parliamentarian, introduced Noel and also read an excerpt from the book in the chapter titled Conviction. It was a very animated session with lots of humour.There, Noel urged the students to give the world the best version of themselves, as she shared her personal triumphs and failures. She further encouraged the secondary school students to use their 24-hour day wisely because the decisions they make today will affect their future tomorrow.The students won themselves complimentary copies of the book. The book is available on Amazon; at Makin Style Boutique in Robb Street, Georgetown; and at Francine Major in Linden.Noel is expected to be back in Linden on Saturday for a march to stamp out violence against women.
