Share Your Story

There is an African proverb that says, "Until the lion learn how to write, the story will always glorify the hunter"
Everyone has survived something. Everyone has a story to tell. Everyone has something in their lives that someone else can learn from. You are not too empty to offer bones, you are the fresh that can be a strength and source of inspiration, peace, happiness and love to others. 
How much longer will you wait until someone shares your story? Arise from the corner that you are hiding, let your wings spread out and fly without doubt, let people see you, hear your story and fly with you to the amazing places, beyond their dreams. Let them be inspired by your daily breathe of fresh air and allow them to live in your life through sharing up your life and experiences.
You might be familiar with the term, "Do not judge me unless you know me" but are you willing to share that part of yourself with other people so they can get to know you and learn something posit…

Young Women Empowered

By: Nancy Lazaro
Many young women face a number of challenges including violence, discrimination, early pregnancy, child marriage and sexual violence and dropping out of school. In many communities young women have inadequate access to quality education, health services and little access and control over land. Bad cultural practices widen the inequality gap amongst young women and men.
The beauty, strength and wealth of each country can only be seen through the women it raises. Women have full potential and capacity to build countries and break the circle of poverty of which many of African families and communities are exposed to. When women are empowered, it is an assurance to families, communities and nations that development and growth are on the rise.
Africa needs to break the circle of poverty that has been transforming from one generation to the other, and this can only be possible through empowering young women, economically, politically and socially. The first step is through enh…

Phenomenal l Extraordinary l Masterpiece

I never thought that happiness will ever be a part of me. Life seemed not to have a meaning. I looked at my friends and I envied their smiles, I wanted to be more like them. My days were darker than my nights. It was on Sunday morning when all I could hear was the sound of birds singing as I struggled to get out of bed. I stood in front of the mirror and my eyes were swollen because of the painful tears that were shed few hours before I slept.  I looked awful that I ended up breaking the mirror into pieces with an empty bottle of perfume that was at the dressing table. I moved to one corner of my bedroom, sat against the wall and broke down into tears. “I can’t take this no more, I cant. Why, Why Why???” I said in the midst of my tears. I spent at least twenty minutes on the floor and it did not bother me cause that was my daily routine.  I thought my dreams were over and all hard work I had put was in vain. As I was sitting down on the floor, I saw a piece of paper, pulled it out of …

Quote For the Day

“I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life." I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one. I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People l…

Nelson Mandela: The Pride of Afrika

Today I remember Mandela. The leader of leaders, the pride of Africa. He made me believe that whatever you put your mind into, you can surely achieve. Madiba, a hero whose legacy brings hope and walks us through the oath of our dreams. He reminds me that giving up is never an option no matter the situation as he said, "It always seem impossible until it's done". He was a leader whose thoughts are still leading majority of leaders. Whenever I think of him, I think of many other great leaders who took the stand for their countries. I think of Mwalimu Julius K. Nyerere, Patrice Lumumba, Jomo Kenyata, Samora Machel, and many others, who gave us back our home, our motherland, our Africa.
These great leaders always remind me that leadership is not a piece of cake, it is about sacrifice; taking responsibilities; servanthood; standing for what you believe in and what's good for the people; being fearless; and mostly, leadership is about putting the needs of others first befor…

Believe in Yourself

Believe that you are placed in this earth for a reason. You are here to serve a purpose greater than yourself and God trusted that you will deliver. You do not want to let Him down just because you cannot believe in yourself. Believe that your hands can do miracles and the particles in your brain have all you need for the tasks ahead of you. Believe in yourself and live a purpose driven life.
Understand that everyone has their opinion on something and respect their opinion but do not let their opinion take away your dreams and make you not be at peace with yourself. Failure begins when you start pleasing other people, so live your life. It's not easy to believe in yourself especially when there is too much noise around you and that is where strength comes in and your vision revealed. Believe in yourself when no one believes in you, and if you are a dreamer like me, most of the time people will not believe in you. In her book, Isabel’s Hand Me Down Dreams, Isabel Lopez says, “If yo…
