F.L.O.W: Financial Literacy for Women, -an initiative of Whole WoMan Network

 

“Money has some rules attached to it. And if you follow the rules, you’re going to have more stability in your life than if you don’t follow the rules.

Doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman.

The rules are the same: You need to have a plan for how you use your money, you need to have a healthy credit identity, you need to have emergency money and some insurance.

I think it’s really important that we come to realize that life is about balance, or even more so, how to integrate all aspects into a fulfilling and enriching experience. It is not zero-sum; life is not all or nothing.

It’s not spending every waking moment thinking about money or spending no time thinking about money, Managing money isn’t really that hard.

It requires some discipline and there is some detail involved, but in reality it doesn’t take that much time and the payback is huge.” ~Gail Vaz-Oxlade

#EducateAGirl #EAGNigeria #MyEAGExperience by EAG Scholar, Dorothy

One day I was browsing through twitter and I saw an advertisement targeted at girls between the ages of 18-24 years, who were interested in a 4-day Journalism & Leadership training to be held in LAGOS.

According to the organizers, there would be free transportation (from anywhere in Nigeria, to and fro) free accommodation and feeding. And I thought, Ah ah, just like that? In Lagos? 

I was skeptical about applying, but I still went ahead and did so. I was selected a week after. Excited, I packed my bags and left for Lagos like I knew where I was headed. The training was scheduled to hold at Virgin Rose Resort, Victoria Island. That was about all I knew.

Eve Ensler’s VAGINA MONOLOGUES is coming to Toronto!

“When you rape, beat, maim, mutilate, burn, bury and terrorize women, you destroy the essential life energy on the planet…..The heart is capable of sacrifice. So is the vagina. The heart is able to forgive and repair. It can change it’s shape to let us in. It can expand to let us out. So can the vagina. It can ache for us and stretch for us, die for us and bleed and bleed us into this difficult, wondrous world. So can the vagina….”

#WWNetworkAfrica™ Reflections | The Fabulous Style Statements at the #AMVCA – Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards

I simply love events like the ‪#‎AMVCA2016‬ (Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards).

I DONT THINK IT’S VAIN AT ALL TO LOOK GOOD, especially with the right intentions in mind. When people take the time to glam up and look great, it is a sort of evangelism, I think 🙂 A huge congratulations to all the nominees and winners. And I’d like to also say thank you to all the ladies (and gents) who brought on their ‘A’ game! Beauty is magical.
