I love Women! Incredible women like my mother who nurtures me, still, who teaches me to be wise, delicate yet powerful, empowers me to be ambitious…the wonderful women I meet on my journey, from the mango tree market in Kodo village, in Northern Nigeria, to the Shea butter co-operatives I discover and the hardworking women farming and creating foods that inspire and nourish my body, mind & soul!
She’s an icon!
The woman selling mangoes by the bushes, pounding away to feed her children, to secure their future.
I pray for us all to reach within for the incredible strength we were created with to inspire, to teach, to lead and to nurture.
This year the campaign theme for International Women’s Day is #BeBoldForChange
Be the change that you want, by being fair, ambitious, supportive and inspiring. Be bold, be brave and be the strong woman you were born to be!
