Book Review: #GIRLBOSS


“People only have as much liberty as they have the intelligence to want and the courage to take.”
Today I am reviewing #GIRLBOSS. I guess all the recent miserable weather has provided me with ample opportunity to spend my evenings curled up indoors with a book rather than going on merry galivants.  (Thankfully the weather has taken a turn for the better!)
In which genre can I comfortably categorise #GIRLBOSS? Is it an autobiography?  Or perhaps a motivational read?

Book Review: We Should All Be Feminists


My next book review is on a piece from my all time favourite author. I love literature from African writer!. Allow me to introduce to you Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Ms  Adichie is a Nigerian novelist whose first novel, Purple Hibiscus, had me hooked from the first paragraph. But it was really her novel Americanah which won her the accolade as my favourite author. She executes the art of storytelling with such finesse and mastery.
And for those of us in the African Diaspora, with a longing to know our roots, we crave stories that will bring us closer to motherland. I consider it a personal privilege to be able to read Chimamanda’s work which brings characters and places and things to life so that you can literally taste, smell and feel the words you are reading. Her vivid descriptions colour the narrative and pulls you right into the heart of her scenes. 
We Should All Be Feminists, which is an extension of a Tedx talk she held in 2013 is her latest piece that I read, and I must say like all her other creations I just couldn’t get enough of it once I cracked the book open. I gulped every single word of it in one sitting.  Although I should have trusted that this would be just as good I was skeptical about reading it for two reasons:

Here We Come



Finally! We have arrived. And by we, I mean you and me.
You may recognise me from my other blog souljournersstory.com, a blog I loved and nurtured like my child. However, I have done a lot of growing since then, and I guess I simply outgrew SoulJourner’s Story.
2016 has seen many winds of change, which have blown me in even more directions, and the experiences I have gained have armed me with so much bloggable content. And madelinewilsonojo.com is the perfect place for that!

I plan to move some content over to this website, but my aim is to bring you better material – particularly material which focuses on equipping women in the workplace and in business with communications tools so they feel empowered to deal with business partners, clients, managers and colleagues.
In short, I am an advocate for everything that educates, empowers and inspires professional women.
I am also a copywriter providing great written content for your advertising and promotional platforms, be it your website, brochures, or press releases.
Are you a woman wanting to do better and be better? Are you in higher education, in full or part time work or in business? Then stick with me. I promise you won’t regret it.
