Good Night Sister Aramide

Posted June 25, 2020

Good night great legend of our time,Ambassador Aramide Oikelome.You came,you saw ,you conquered! Through your good works you have left your footprints on the sands of times.Three lessons we learned from you: i)Be humble for no one knows what tomorrow holds ii)Love unconditionally and  make everyone feel valuable because you never know what personal battles they have to fight behind the scenes iii)Be diligent in your service to humanity for through the works of your hands you will be remembered when you are gone.

We started as fellow journalist colleagues,sharing our passions for women's reporting.From Accra ,Ghana in 2011 to New York in 2015 and in  Lagos Nigeria  2016 you finally  joined our global sisterhood of love-World Pulse! .Our three encounters led me into the presence of a pillar of love,tenacity and dedication.A woman who gave her all in service to humanity yet didn't seek the limelight.Thank you for all you did for World Pulse.Thank you for being an embodiment of all that which she stands for.

Sister Aramide,l was always in awe of you not only because of the work you did but above all for the humble,authentic and judgement free person you were.Your eyes were focused on your journey without distraction or envy of others.It's like you knew time was not on your side!Thank you for how valuable and loved you made us feel.Your memory will forever remain fresh in our midst.We will always love you.

Adieu great change maker, rest peacefully in the bossom of our good Lord whom you loved dearly.

Dear Sis Yvonne,
Ashia again.
Reading through this shows just how long and strong your friendship has been.
I understand it is not easy and I pray for strength for you and all who knew her up close.
Thank you for sharing these lessons you learnt from her:
'Three lessons we learned from you: i)Be humble for no one knows what tomorrow holds ii)Love unconditionally and make everyone feel valuable because you never know what personal battles they have to fight behind the scenes iii)Be diligent in your service to humanity for through the works of your hands you will be remembered when you are gone.'
I so agree with these lessons because they resonate with me and it makes me feel just how much of a gem World Pulse and humanity lost.
May her memories comfort you all in these trying times.

Sending hugs and love to you.
