It is to give the voiceless person a voice

 Here is a short piece about:

What gives Me hope in the coming year. 

 Very often,  in fact , potential is all l see. In my own view no individual is  fully formed. On the contrary, each individual is a work in progress, alive with possibilities. And am drawn toward  helping more marginalised women  in Nigeria for this very reason. My goal is to help them experience success . All the while- l see the signs of growth despite all odds, a glimpse of excellence where previously there were only halting steps, a new skill learned with a promising future. For me , these signs of growth- invisible to some- are clear signs of potential being realised. These signs of growth among women are my fuel. They bring me strenght and satisfaction.

Finally, for me the most important thing- It is to be active. It is to be human and to be humane, it is to be considerate and empathic. It is to give the voiceless person a voice,

Hello Adewumi,
Thank you for sharing with us what gives you hope. You are right about many women teeming with possibilities but yet, unable to go further. May you be the hope they need to experience that success.

Dear Mojisola,
It is leadership like yours that ensures that real change is happening where it is most needed and for women who need support the most. We are not finished until all women are free, and free to live supporting ourselves and flourishing with all we have to offer. "These signs of growth among women are my fuel". Words from the heart of a true activist.
