The City has announced who the keynote speaker will be at the Women of Influence Awards next month.
 
The owner and designer of Cozy Intentions Tracy Persson has been selected.
 
Persson has been heavily involved in supporting women in the community by getting involved with charities, engaging the public through courses and workshops, and she's an avid advocate for Odyssey House.
 
She says she's always trying to help the women in Grande Prairie in any way that she can.
 
"I also started a Toques and Tampons campaign. We did our second annual campaign where we collect warm accessories and feminine hygiene products to donate to Odyssey House," says Persson. "As well, last year we received enough support for the Rotary House and Sunrise House."
 
Persson adds she gets inspiration to do the work she does from the women who supported her throughout her life.
 
"In points of my life, I've had a lot of support from women and gone through a lot in my childhood and early adult years. So I'm just appreciating that support and paying it forward," says Persson.

Extreme Cold Warning in place for 10th straight day
