The Valentine’s Day dinner office event was a lot of pressure for this introvert. So she requested a day off from work to go get her hair done before Valentine’s Day.
Everyone in the office was shocked. It was unlike her to cut her hair, but Pendo was fed up with pleasing people, so she made her priorities more important than her squad.
Leila decided not to go out because she had just broken up with her boyfriend two weeks before at her ruracio (traditional) wedding, and it hurt. Cooking was her thing. Leilah made her favourite recipes and ensured they came out perfect.
She then made the latest cocktail trends on social media before indulging in a slow meal all by herself. Candles lit flowers all over her body, slow, seductive music, and all that. According to her, this was her taking back her power from the one who did her wrong. His loss, she said, as she slept on the couch after a good evening on her own.
Cindly is a lifestyle blogger and a fashionista of sorts. She decided a “day in the life” vlog would be ideal for today. She will meet her tailor as she awaits Valentine’s dinner. Here she will be hosting an all-women dinner, which will be a party for the celebration of womanhood.
Not to mention, Cindy is in a long-distance relationship and won’t see her man for at least 6 months. She can’t wait to take selfies and give her nuggets of wisdom.
Kelita is a single mother of two boys. This mother has decided that on Valentine’s Day, she is going to have a date with the twins. I know she is very nervous since this is the first time this is happening.
It is within her dreams to raise well-balanced human beings and males who will make an impact on society in a beautiful way. This is her gift to her sons, apart from education and good home life, which Kelita tries to maintain, even as she runs her Sacco and financial literacy online courses.
Bubbly, as her name implies, is a social worker. Only in her late 20s and she just finished college. She earned a distinction for her graduate degree in sociology. The irony is that finding a man for love’s sake was not one of the trophies she received during her four years at university.
One of her interests is empowering girls. In this sense, on Valentine’s Day, this woman ran a campaign to buy sanitary pads and pants for the girl clubs she manages in three high schools in Kenya. She decided to spread love on this romantic day.
Change The Narrative.
Stay Empowered, Authentic & Inspire.
For more than two decades, the women’s empowerment movement has done its work. It’s time to honour your forefathers and let the world know how proud you are to be a woman.
Expressing what you want is now a natural thing. Being true to who you are will remain a lifelong stronghold. Thus, finding the motivation for why you do what you do will remain a lifelong yearning.
