OMG OMG OMG this is incredible … BBC unveiled their list of 100 inspirational and innovative women of 2017 and I made the list.
The list includes NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson and President Michelle Bachelet of Chile
It’s true when they say your brightest moments usually comes after your darkest times. Keep your head up and work hard through it. The same people laughing at you will celebrate you
Don’t let being a woman hinder you, I have and still have to fight to get people to respect and appreciate my work and not limit me because I am female so this really encourages me to keep pushing and breaking boundaries
Put God first, enjoy your life, love, be a good human and do what makes you happy. Don’t let anything hold you back because you are a mother, wife, young, older or a female “YOU CAN NEVER LEAVE A FOOTPRINT THAT WILL LAST IF YOU ARE ALWAYS WORKING ON TIPTOES” “Leymar Gbowee”
The list which contains only two Nigerian women, also includes mathematician, Anne-Marie Imafidon.
BBC also revealed women on the list would be part of the 100 Women Challenge that would tackle some of the biggest problems facing women around the world. It’s understood the women would come together in four teams to share their experiences and create innovative ways to tackle:
The glass ceiling – #Teamlead
Female illiteracy – #Teamread
Street harassment – #Teamgo
Sexism in sport – #Teamplay
Although the list contains only 60 names on it at the moment, it’s expected more additions would be made as more women take up the challenge in some way over time.
Also on the list, 7 other African women were selected and they include– Adelle Onyango (Kenya) Anita Nderu (Kenya) Chaima Lahsini (Morroco), Ellen Johnson Sirleaf (Liberia), Marieme Jamme (Senegal), Naomi Mwaura (Kenya) and Talent Jumo (Zimbabwe)
