Adaora Mbelu-Dania: Dauntless

I wrote here a while back that I would do a post on the amazing people who inspire me, so in the spirit of sharing, here goes!

Other than to share these awesome people with you (don’t say I never gave you anything), I also want to celebrate the people who have (and are still) inspiring me to be and do better and also to remind myself that I too can aspire to greatness. So without further ado, let us begin…

I was fresh out of service and I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do next. Everybody who knew me knew I had always nursed this idea about a career in the media industry. (more…)

For the longest time, right from my days in Secondary school, I always had people tell me I look like Adesuwa Onyenokwe (I’m serious, don’t roll your eyes). (more…)

No Strings: When Creativity Roams Free.

People of the world, have you seen that beats by Dre commercial with Dj Khaled, Pharrell Williams, Nikki Minaj, Michael Phelps and a long list of other celebrities and our very own Pinocchio! I’m sure you are wondering, err…Pinocchio? Yep, you read that right. (more…)

Beauty
