Strange but true, I am not a pictures person. A few days ago, Morounfolu and I were discussing women; how they cherish pictures and I wonder how I will make my future wife understand that pre-wedding pictures are not my thing. I hope and pray she understands and we do not need to visit a marriage counselor because of this.
Quite unusual, I felt different this morning. I woke up and I felt the need to take a picture with the portrait of the most important person in my life at the background, wearing the most expensive suit I have at the moment.
The portrait at the background is a gift I got for her to celebrate her on Mother’s day, 2016 and the purple tie was a show of solidarity to all the females in the world. My mom is the greatest role model in my life.
She is a pillar of strength and the most stubborn and independent woman I know. She had to raise four children largely by herself and she can boast of four graduates.
On International Women’s day and always, we should always remind ourselves that we will not be complete without women. In consequence, At SHEFFA, we have a wonderful array of activities lined up throughout the month of March.
First, we will continue to post articles and contents that address the challenges women face in our chauvinistic society throughout the month of March, we will continue to celebrate women, their success stories and ultimately, their immeasurable contributions to society.
Second, all the articles posted by our freelance writers on the blog today will be centered on women and we have included the International Women’s Day, 2020 picture in the posts.
Third, we will unveil the latest addition to the SHEFFA family today. She is Hope Idada Ayomiposi, she is a content creator and a social media personality. Her first post will be discussing marital infidelity amongst other issues women face in marriage. Please follow her on Instagram: @sell_with_stories
Four, we have started sharing pictures of women who have inspired us in no small way on our official WhatsApp group. How does it work? If you are on the WhatsApp group, you are encouraged to share a picture/pictures of women who have inspired you with the hashtag: #Each4Equal.
Lastly, you can still participate in our International Women’s day activities even when you are not in our official WhatsApp group, ask me how? On the last day of March, I will share a post on the blog which is a compilation of 31 influential women sourced from friends and families of our wonderful blog. All you need to do is to send a picture of that person and why she stands out.
Conclusively, women are the reason the world go round. Please join us at SHEFFA to celebrate them the way they deserve. #Each4Equal.
Happy International Women’s Day.
God Bless Our Women.
God Bless Us All.
