BEING crowned ‘Wonder Woman’ on March 23 is not daunting for Karawara resident Alicia Curtis.

It’s being held in the same esteem as all the wonder women in her life.

The mother-of-two was nominated for the 2018 Momentum Wonder Woman Award that will be presented at the International Women’s Day Luncheon to be held at Crown Perth next month.

“I feel like I have so many wonder women around me that I look up to,” Ms Curtis said.

“A wonder woman in today’s society is about having to balance so many different things.”

Ms Curtis raises two children, four-and-a-half-year-old Caitlin and 16-month-old Lachlan with husband Shane Fisher, while both running their own businesses.

The 34-year-old was just 19 when she started her business Alyceum, a leadership education business.

It was through this business she met Grace Mugabe who completed one of her leadership programs in 2012 and went on to start her own business that offers financial consulting.

Ms Mugabe was among several women, Ms Curtis’ wonder women, who helped her establish the philanthropy organisation 100 Women that has donated $400,000 to various charities since its inception five years ago.

100 Women was the second non-profit Ms Curtis founded, the first, now known as Millennium Kids, she established as a 12-year-old after attending an international children’s conference on the environment.
