I have been around much and I sincerely miss dropping you some lines.
The series of activities around the world, especially in the political circles have consumed much of my time.
However, my mind is away from politics for a moment and fixated on the role of social change agents.
My quest took me to my dear friend, Ololade Ajayi, a Nigerian feminist, compere, and advocate for human rights who has started a podcast to tell the stories of survivors and victims of sexual and gender-based violence.
The podcasts help connect them with resources to heal from the physical and psychological abuses they have experienced.
As an advocate for women’s rights, she is a volunteer for various NGOs that provide support to victims of rape, female genital mutilation, and gender-based violence. She believes her poems will be used in challenging norms and stereotypes surrounding politics and feminism.

Shortly after, I headed to my niece’s status, where she has been promoting her World Youth Day event; July 15, 2022.
Derayo Animashaun, founder De’rayo Vocational Institute and a bunch of other business owners will be hosting the the youth to hours of skills acquisition for free.
Another social enterprise that will likely see another lot on their way out of poverty. Follow link to register for the training: WYSD

Remember to make someone smile today with your random acts of kindness.
