Our latest issue is finally here! In the spirit of celebrating mothers this month, we talked to Anthonia Akitunde, founder of mater mea, a site that celebrates women of color at the intersection of career and family. Anthonia talks to us about mater mea filing a void in the representation of black women in media.
We also spotlight MBA Mama created by Divinity Matovu, a single mother of two. MBA Mama is for “women pursuing graduate business degrees that would show MBAs, and the world, that being an accomplished professional and an amazing mother are not mutually exclusive.”
Get inspired by Nasozi Kakembo, the creative force behind xNasozi , a home décor and lifestyle brand. Nasozi shares with us how she manages to balance motherhood and a successful business.
Our food contributor Amanda Gicharu shares a special 3 part recipe ‘Pamper-your-Mother Brunch’ that you can prepare for your mother for Mother’s Day.
In the “ Soul of a Poet’ feature, get to know poet Naki Akrobettoe who talks about the origin of her love for poetry. We also chat with creator and writer of new British web series, Housemates, Monique Needham, as she explains how the lack of diversity in British media motivated her to produce her own web series. Patrice Cameau, founder of C.O.O.K.I.E, a platform that helps women business owners thrive, shares tips for aspiring entrepreneurs.
