A woman with perfect vision, striving to reconnect with the Goddesses of her ancestors and constantly searching for the lost spirit in a World where we constantly see people on a mission to unknown yet realistic destination.

Maria De Chirikof, a strikingly beautiful woman, who is ceaselessly energized by her pride and joy; her four lovely daughters, an epitome of crystal clear conscience, a perfect role model to everywoman especially to the determined African woman living where women and girls are treated as pieces of property.

An indigenous American woman, though invisible to others but ever visible where she keeps coming back day after day, opening the door into the family house of Pulse Wire to reflect on variety and passions for inspirations, her doting word is Justice must be entrenched in every system.

To be remembered for good is an indication of a good and godly character, she is a woman who will roast your yam in your absence be rest assured that your portion will not be utilized as the firewood for roasting hers selfishly.

Undeterred by the past but forging ahead as she watches the bright light from the end of the tunnel in her favorite spot at, sitting with a plate of spaghetti, fresh fruits and vegetables balanced on her laps at Earthquake Park that has a view of the inlet and Sleeping Lady.

The essence of her celebration, “a woman who brought justice back into the world” while in reality she will most likely be remembered as “a good woman who cared”

With humility and perfect defiance to those we ruthlessly work to eliminate the traces of their hands in the lives of women and children do we present Maria De Chirikof to the World.

Olutosin, what a beautiful portrait you have painted of Maria. Your interview is just as rich as your subject, filling the page with all the vibrant colours that make up Maria's personality. You have created a portrait of someone I want to hang out with as the sun sets, a friend whom I would trust with my children, and a woman who would fill their heads with all the wonderful stories from her cultural heritage. I'm not sure if they are your words or Maria's, but I just love the description regarding the yam. It's at once poetic, humourous and touching.

I am excited to read your next interview. Best wishes...

Dear Love,

Thanks for the comment, Jennifer knows how to partner those we close to the souls, Maria is a good woman. The yam adage is a saying in Africa.

Love You so much,
