Yerima and The Nigerian Senate Did Not Change The Age of Marriage

Posted in: , ,

Yesterday, several people in my social media networks sent me links to a couple of change.org petitions which urged the UN and other Human Rights Organisations to stop the Senate, the House of Representative and the Nigerian government, from altering the constitution in a way that would allow for child marriage.

Love Letter To the Woman of my Dreams by Iweka Kingsley

Posted in: , ,

Dear You,

If only you knew the rush that comes with thoughts of you, even now as I write this letter, I feel it. As often as I feel it I want to let you know, but if I did we both will have time for nothing else, except bask in a place where only thoughts can dwell.

Winning Image at Job Interviews - Posture and Body Language

Posted in: ,

From the moment you walk through the door, your body begins to speak; mind what it says! Step in with confident strides, walking like you would be doing towards a beautiful lady you have been “eyeing” for a while. I am sure you won’t do that walk with feet dragging, hunch back, and hands behind your back or folded across your chest; you literarily “puff up” and enlarge your personal bubble.
