Weston super Women
Weston super Women is a film project that highlights the Wonderful Women of Weston.
Weston super Mare is a town on the up, despite having a reputation as being deadbeat town, the town is full of life and creativity.
The women interviewed come from various backgrounds and yet they all have one thing in common, a fire in their belly to create transformation.
The ‘Weston super Women’ films are heart warming, inspiring and create a historical line for Weston’s history for where we are at this point in time.
If you’re a ‘Weston super Women’ and fit the bill we would love to hear from you.
The first five women have been filmed, we are filming the next five in January.

2 - Send a photo
3 - Send a short biography describing your personal and profession journey highlights and lowlights. Including how long you have lived in the area and other places in the world you have lived.

The film will be used on a ‘Weston super Women’ Facebook page and as a Vlog on ‘Weston super Women’ website page. You may also be included in future events. We would love you to showcase yourself as an entrepreneur and promote your business & services on our platform whilst joining our ever growing community of amazingly talented women.
The Back Stage Team
Producer and interviewer Becky Walsh moved to Weston when she first left home at the tender age of nineteen. Once leaving Weston she lived all over the world. Having gained a reputation both in the personal development field as a self help author and as a TV and radio presenter, she has returned to Weston to bring her knowledge into the town.
Becky’s TV show ‘Anything goes with Becky Walsh’ aired across the ‘Made TV network’ weekly.
Before this she hosted her own show on LBC radio a late Friday night call-in advice and talk show, she then went onto Hay House Radio online and is now a freelancer for BBC Radio.
Becky does a live theatre show hailed as a cross between personal development talk and a stand-up show, where people laugh their way to personal 'light-bulb' moments.
She’s a Hay House author of the book ‘You DO Know – Learning to act on intuition instantly’ which is published in four languages, as well as four more published books and one fiction book under the name Rebecca Stone. Becky is a sought-after speaker and has appeared at the world-renowned seminar ‘I can do it’,as well being a coach and script editor for TEDx speakers. She also writes for Huffington Post and Psychologies Magazine. Becky has a private practice as an intuitive catalyst in London, Bristol and worldwide online.
My personal motivation for starting this project is to get to know women
who are living and working in this town and through their eyes to see
and understand this place better.
This town “happened” to me.
I just followed my partner after he had moved to the UK because of his job. I
came here in April 2016 with my head full of hopes for an amazing job
opportunities awaiting me in Bristol but the reality was much more
challenging.. The only job I managed to find was at Bristol
Airport that had nothing to do with what I am interested in. I kept on
searching but in the meantime two years had passed. I moved to Weston super Mare and when I finally quit my job, I discovered women’s networking meetings in Weston super Mare and met a lot of amazing and brave women whose stories I would like to tell
I’m originally from Poland but I studied and lived in Italy, New York,
Buenos Aires, Costa Rica and Amsterdam. I adore living in a big city so
living in WSM is quite a challenge to me ;-) I design wall stickers and
promotional merchandise for businesses.
