Women of Many Hats!
On Tuesday, March 25 at the Eau Gallie Yacht Club, Oceanside Charter Chapter presents Women of Many Hats! with featured speaker, Ms. Seeta Begui, author, activist, radio show host and nurse.
“With every job that must be done, there must be an element of fun!” Seeta Begui embraces this quote from the Mary Poppins series of children’s books as she organizes her busy day. Imagine waking up in the morning at 6:00 a.m. knowing that you have an eight hour work day ahead of you, including the task of booking two guests for your radio show, while still needing to color your hair before attending an evening gala! It all goes without saying that time management is essential to our daily lives. Please join us on Tuesday, March 25 as Seeta shares her insights and experiences to make long work days more manageable and more fun.
Seeta was born in a village in Trinidad and Tobago where she grew up with eighteen siblings. Her published memoir, Eighteen Brothers and Sisters, available at Amazon.com, is an inspirational message of the power of sacrifices, mentors, education and training to make a difference. The book chronicles Seeta's upbringing, struggles becoming educated, and her accomplishments thanks to the teamwork of her phenomenal extended family and the angels in the right place at the right time to guide her.
In her memoir, Seeta is transformed from a scraggly three year old, to a battered wife, to the beautiful, accomplished woman of influence and means that she has become today.
Seeta has been a Licensed Practical Nurse since 1987, and specializes in geriatric nursing. She also managed her husband’s busy medical practice for six years until he semi-retired in 2012. After writing a column for Florida Today for several years, in March, 2012 Seeta developed a radio show, Viewpoint with Seeta and Friends to continue to have a voice in the community. The show, which features a new guest each week with new topics on every aspect of our community, is broadcast every Monday on AM 1300 WMEL and 1300 WMEL.com at noon.
Seeta resides with her husband in Satellite Beach, and is the proud mother of four grown children. Active in politics, she promotes social justice, prevention of domestic abuse, and the empowerment of women.
On a daily basis, we all wear different HATS – we are devoted daughters, sisters, aunts, mothers and grandmothers; dependable wives and girlfriends; tireless caregivers; and knowledgeable businesswomen. Because we have a lot of heart, we enjoy playing our many roles, letting the role define us sometimes at the expense of our own health. Sometimes it can be hard to stop and remember who we are as women, besides being everything to everyone.
Oceanside Charter Chapter challenges you to wear a hat that represents who you are, and wear it to this special evening! We will have a hat contest for the smallest hat, the largest hat, the prettiest hat, and the most original hat.
Promote your business by donating a basket for our raffle. For more information, please contact Terry Bassing, Event Chair at (321) 626-4853.
