Why you should listen to her talk?

Don’t talk the talk, walk the walk, move from chapter to chapter in your life. I believe we cannot rely on yesterday’s success, but need to keep pressing onwards and upwards. What is the “next chapter” for us as Africans? It has to start with us looking within ourselves, pulling on our own unique strengths, whilst recognizing and learning from our mistakes, moving forward without wallowing in the past. Our children are our future, so we need to sow into them the positives attributes that will help us reap continual growth on our continent Africa. #FABA, For Africa, By Africans!

Quote from Gena West: “Your success is not dependent on anyone else’s failure. Keep running your race!”
