I am pleased to be involved with the ‘Women of Newport’ Project and Barnabas Arts House welcomes women of Newport (and men, of course) to its doors. Kamila is a powerhouse of talent, ideas, words and energy and wherever I meet up with her I want to sit her down and get her take a deep breath and give herself five minutes peace. In many ways her enthusiasm and ongoing creativity reminds me of myself 30 years ago. Where has that enthusiasm and creativity gone in me? Nowhere. It is all still railing around in my head at 65!

”Newport City Ladies are back! This time with two teams, not one!” by Kamila Jarczak

Since July 2019 I have supported our local women’s football team Newport CIty Ladies FC and it was an amazing time to watch them grow, play, laugh and build up friendships.

I really enjoy being involved with them and I am happy to provide fresh photos for them and share their progress on our Women of Newport social media.

I class myself as a feminist, but understand that many people, women included, fear the term and the ideology.

I was introduced to Kamila by a friend of mine Jo as a super busy woman ( Jo, you must know me very well! ).

It took us  awhile to arrange to meet but I have to say – it was the most exciting and best time I had during the lockdown. Kamila is a person you can talk to endlessly, about anything.
