Be A Duck!

Ducks are underdogs. They often go unnoticed because they move so graciously and tend not to wear their challenges on their faces. They paddle like hell under water but the part we can see just glides across the river like nothing is going on under. I can say in many cases I’m a duck. It…

What Validation?

  Happy Monday!  Hope you all had a great weekend. Let’s talk about validation! As human beings, there will always be people in our lives that matter enough to influence our actions. The things we say, do, the plans we make etc but at what point do we draw the line? Something I know I…

Adeola Shasanya – Afro Tech Girls

  The first time I met Adeola was in JSS1 (7th grade) in Queens College. She was super nice and we immediately became friends. She is always smiling which makes her very approachable and easy to talk to. Over the years, though we’ve been in separate continents, we’ve always been able to keep in touch…

Me Time!

Do You Know Your Worth?

Happy Monday beautiful people. I’ve had the pleasure of spending time with some amazing women recently and each time, the topic of knowing our worth came up. After it happened the third time, I figured more Goal Diggers need to hear this. So, DO YOU KNOW YOUR WORTH? Friendship: As I’m getting older, I have…

Lisa Laws

The Fixer. There are women you come across in life that defy what society has you thinking a man’s job is and Lisa is one of those women. Our interview happened over drinks and apps at the Soho House and when we were done, I just wanted to do more with my life. Who is…

China Panion
