Bookmarked! | November Edition

Image Credit:
As usual, public life has been crazy, and lots have been going on! For instance, have we now negotiated the terms of a certain exit? And is it true that five became four after one of my favourite childhood girl bands announced their UK wide tour?

Despite all the activity that has been keeping traditional and social media buzzing, the world of communications and literacy has been somewhat a quiet month. But, the advantage of that is that Michelle Obama's release of her memoir, Becoming on the 13th November has remained the standout event of November.

Not an Author? This Is How To Support Black British Writing

Historically I've always shied away from events. I prefer networking through the web from the comfort of my home. But lately I've been physically placing myself in social settings and relying on my less bashful side to just make it work! One of my biggest strides in networking was recently attending the Black Girl Fest a few weeks back.

Women in STEM: Nafisat's Story

Finally ladies, our Women in STEM series concludes with Nafisat Tijjani from Kano in Nigeria. Nafisat is a lecturer in the Mechanical Engineering field. As a child, her dream was to become a doctor - a common dream for a child doing well academically at an early age in that part of the world. It was a general belief that for an individual to be successful in life, she or he must study a professional course, such as Medicine, Engineering, or Law. Find out what she had to say when we caught up with her!
