I Love inspirational women speakers — especially ones by women of color! As most of the time I can relate to their cultural struggles and life experiences. I am always on the lookout for inspirational content from these figures, be it in the form of a podcast, book, video or conference. Recently, a friend shared a video of Jumoke Adenowo on an episode of King Women with me. This was my first time being introduced to this #fearlessQueen and I Immediately got hooked! Her thought provoking concepts of societal expectations on what it means to be an African woman, and her experiences in challenging the African ideologies and norms was a breath of fresh air and made for an engaging and insightful episode.
Jumoke Adenowo, is a well respected and multi-award winning Nigerian architect, entrepreneur, philanthropist and author.
Below, I have highlighted a few quotable moments and notable takeaways from this episode that resonated with me. I hope it inspires you to take ownership of your life and to never settle for anything less than you deserve.
