Introducing Olutosin!!!!

The amazing Storyteller
Our stories strengthen our sisters....

Dear friends, here is your Olutosin joining the group this beautiful rainy day in Lagos Nigeria. I am first of all your your friend, your colleague, hey hey hey I am a part of the World Pulse mountain, a mountain that is made of sisters and lastly, I am that sisters of yours who happens to be delivered by another mother. We are one, Ubuntu.

I am a passionate writer, a midnight poet, and a committed change-maker. I love working with women and children, its the fuel that keeps my engine oiled and alive. I work with the riverside women and children in the riverine communities in Lagos state, Nigeria. These are areas where people are cut off from the mainland by a beautiful river that breathes night and day.

Oh yeah, I love making treasure from trash just to teach women that adding value to trash can turn it to a treasure, in the same way that an added value to a woman's life can turn her into a community asset, a role model and a voice for other silent women.

Lest I forget, I am a social innovator, I love creating new things out of useless things because I believe that nothing is useless and everybody can create reasure by just wearing a new Lens that appreciates everyone and everything.

Though I look forward to more empowerment programmes, but I believe that I am an empowered woman, a domestic violence survivor, who is free from all the shackles of societal oppression because I chose to face my fear and began to walk elegantly out of every situation that humiliates, dehumanises and oppresses women. Here I am, at your service in the Gender Based Violence Group.

Light and Love.

Olutosin,

I feel your energy in this post! This group is lucky to have you co-leading it, bringing a new lens as you say and bringing that innovative spirit to mobilizing women around this ever-important topic. I cannot wait to see the places you'll go as a Community Champion, and know that you'll bring much positive change to the World Pulse community and beyond in and through this role! We are here cheering you on, always!

Kind Regards,

Eliza

You are a pacesetter in many ramifications, and I cannot but celebrate knowing that you are co-championing a group that stands to benefit from your experiences and capabilities. I know you can and will move this group to great heights.

I celebrate you today even as I echo this reality- 'Your passion always shines through your words and the things you committedly do each day to change the world for the best'. Keep soaring!

Best wishes,

Olanike

Dear Tosin,

I celebrate every place I find you, every opportunity to work with you. How wonderful to find that you have taken on co-leadership of this group, this subject so close to my heart. What a joy to have the opportunity to work closely here with you and all the others here, toward an end to all forms of violence against women. I am so encouraged to find solutions here, together.

Deep and ongoing love,

Tam
