I am a stand for the advancement of women with my primary focus on African women and women of Black African descent.  I am leading a movement for women to have a voice at the policy making table (social justice) and economic development (entrepreneurs).  I declare war on scarcity, fear-based mindsets for I know the power is within us to love deeply and live in abundance.  I am redefining the word “Beautiful”  Knowledge is beautiful.  The application of knowledge is transformational.  I am committed to living life to the full.

“I could not at any age be content to take my place in a corner by the fireside and simply look on.”
Eleanor Roosevelt - US diplomat & reformer

Before you begin a thing, remind yourself that difficulties and delays quite impossible to foresee are ahead. If you could see them clearly, naturally you could do a great deal to get rid of them but you can't. You can only see one thing clearly and that is your goal. Form a mental vision of that and cling to it through thick and thin.   Kathleen Norris
