Celebrating Women

Sahle-Work Zewde

I celebrate a phenomenal woman today. An amazing woman who is a huge inspiration to me. A woman who has inspired so many. Sahle-Work Zewde is the president of Ethiopia and the first woman to hold the office.

Born in Addis Ababa, on the 21st of February 1950, Sahle-Work attended elementary and secondary school at Lycee Guebre-Mariam in Addis Ababa, after which she studied natural science at the University of Montpellier, France. A career diplomat and a veteran of the United Nations, she was elected president unanimously by members of the Federal Parliamentary Assembly on 25 October 2018.

Sahle-Work Zewde is the only serving female head of state in Africa. In her first address to parliament, Sahle-Work Zewde promised to be a voice for women and stressed the importance of unity.

She is truly a source of inspiration and a phenomenal woman!

My name is Adenike Omotosho. I have an unflinching vigour to inspire other women. I do this by celebrating the lives of phenomenal women around the world.
I believe as a woman I am fearfully and wonderfully made by God. I want every woman out there to equally realise they are special and wonderful.
I also believe in sharing knowledge to impact my readers cut across gender. Therefore, men would benefit from the other sections on the blog and they could even get motivated by the profiles of the phenomenal women.
Once again, welcome to Nikkyosblog where you get inspiration to aspire. Please do subscribe and do leave a comment. Thank you!🤗

It’s a great show of credibility, people know those whom are achieving goals through struggle in their careers and kept clean working records.
Young girls and women should understudy her and emulate her achievement.
