Last night, 8th December, Freya Rose Archer attended the 2022 everywoman Awards, an event that highlights and wholeheartedly celebrates women in business, their personal success and achievements!
Over the course of the event, female entrepreneurs were noted for their exceptional business triumphs and from thousands of entrants, the final 8 category winners were announced!
Leading up to yesterday's event, Freya was selected as one of 3 finalists for the Aphrodite Award, a category which alone received 1,000 entires. Standing beside her fellow empowered entrepreneurial Mothers, Freya was proud to be a part of the trio to receive recognition for their personal achievement as a founder whilst raising young children.

After a seemingly long, and rather nervous wait, it was announced that Freya was the 2022 everywoman Aphrodite Award Winner! - the honour is awarded to a woman who founded her business whilst raising a child/children aged 12 or under. Business must have been trading for a minimum of 18 months.
"I am absolutely thrilled to win this prestigious award amongst so many inspirational women. My journey as a mother and building a business has been incredibly rewarding, but at times also incredibly tough. This recognition means so much to me as its a celebration personal achievement - to be recognised by women i'm personally inspired by, within an especially authentic and empowering awards is an honour and truly exciting".

For those in attendance, it was incredibly moving and inspirational to see so many innovative and successful individuals share their personal stories and take a moment to celebrate being a women in business!
