A Fermanagh woman has won two awards at the recent Women Changing the World Awards.

Emma Weaver of Mental Wealth International has been named the Health and Wellbeing winner and the Wellness and Wellbeing Award winner of the 2024 Women Changing the World Awards.

The Women Changing the World Awards presented by Oprah Winfrey’s all-time favourite guest, Dr. Tererai Trent, celebrate and recognise women achieving outstanding success in areas such as sustainability, humanitarian work, leadership, advocacy, tech, product development, education, health and innovation.

The awards are designed to recognize the growing number of women leading the way in making the world a better place for us all and inspire other women to answer the call to action.

Ms. Weaver was thrilled to win her award, she said: “It was truly an honour to win this award which is globally recognised, the other finalists are absolute trailblazers in their field and the competition was such high standard, when I started my journey with Mental Wealth International, I never expected to be nominated for such an award never mind to win two.”

Dr. Trent explained “These exceptional women are here to awaken hearts, give permission to recapture dreams and inspire the women of the world to come together to forge a brighter path for all. The rising of women is the awakening of everybody.”

It can be challenging to create change in the world and Ms. Weaver advises those wanting to make change to "be unapologetically yourself, do the work and be intentional in all that you do".

Ms. Weaver is committed to continuing to make an impact through her work and her vision for the future is to ensure everyone can access timely and appropriate mental health support when they need it, mental health first aiders in every single workplace.
