Today is a day to voice out on creating a #BalanceforBetter
A balance world is a better world, today we celebrate women all over the world including myself, for it is a day set aside to celebrate women’s achievements, raise awareness against biasness, and take action for equality.
For the future is exciting, let’s build a gender-balanced world, everyone has a part to play at all time and everywhere.
From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We noticed its absence and experience and celebrate its presence.
As the theme says “Think equal, build smart, innovate for change” it’s a wakeup call to focus on innovative ways in which we can advance gender equality and the empowerment of women, particularly in the areas of social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure.
Today is a marked day for us, we should seize this opportunity to echo the consideration on how to accelerate the 2030 Agenda building momentum for the effective implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals, especially goal number 5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls and number 4: Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning.
Today I as a woman, am celebrating 10 women from all works of life, from a fish seller, Charcoal Seller, Vegetable Seller, Fufu seller and other petty business women I am empowering them into knowing that they are equal to every existing human being. So I encourage us all to rise up and work together into making Nigeria and the world at large a better place for all. WE CAN!!!
All been said, let us create a balance in the society.
For balance drives a better working world. Let’s all help create a #BalanceforBetter.

To every young girl out there; believe in yourself. Fight for your dreams. Be the best that you can be! You can be phenomenal. Don’t let anyone tell you you can’t do it. Don’t let anyone dim your light. You’re worthy. You’re worth it. You can win. You can be the best! You are the future! Women are the new wealth creators. Be determined to be one of those women. Stand up and be counted. And when you’re done, the world will not only celebrate you, the world will know you were here and you fought a great fight! ❤
Me? I’m just beginning my next level greatness and I want so many of you to join me.
Happy International Women’s Day! ❤

Sometimes, I just pause and give myself a good hug. I was ruthlessly ambitious. Crazy risk taker. Gentle Giant. ‘High Lander’ When Africa wasn’t a cool “thing” I stood for it and still fighting for it in my little GREAT way. My only issue, I am always way ahead of my time. Didn’t know been ahead, shakes tables and brings about Enemies…!!!! But if you understand I was born and proudly raised in Surulere, you will know I was built in the system. My roots are solid. ✊? #HIWD2019 FBF ❤️ to @forbeswomanafrica for the acknowledgement, I’m humbled…! @maiatafo we did it. Red suit never look so good.?
