I celebrate an amazing woman today. A woman who has inspired so many. Lola Omolola is the first Nigerian woman who created a place where other women can share their untold stories regarding their sexual abuses, and other challenges they are facing. Lola founded the Female IN (FIN) group on Facebook in 2014. A group that connects 1.7 million+ women from across the world.
Lola completed her
primary and secondary studies in Nigeria. After moving to the United States,
she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism from Columbia College in
Chicago. Lola founded the Female IN (FIN) group,
searching for a way to create mutual support with other Nigerians after the
kidnapping of over 300 girls by the Boko Haram.
Lola’s work has been recognised by Mark Zuckerberg and other Facebook officials for creating a positive impact through the social media platform. Lola is now planning to move forward with FIN by providing centre where women can go to talk about their experiences in a safe place. Lola was featured in the 2018 Facebook F8 Conference.
Lola’s goal is to
help women who are struggling with life, but cannot tell anyone about their
issues because of tradition. In many countries like Nigeria, girls and women
are voiceless. So FIN is for those voiceless women who have nobody to listen
and encourage them.

It’s mental health awareness month. Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
