Lilian stood in shock looking at the mail she had just received from her boss. She was torn between following instructions and telling her boss that the candidate he instructed her to prepare an appointment letter for did not attend the interview. Her boss had made her part of the interview committee and the organization did not have many applicants for the vacant post. This made it quite easy for the committee to know every applicant by name. Also, the interview had come in three stages, two out of it was a physical interview. Lilian was lost at the emergence of [...]
Light beam. Losing her husband to the war, having to fend for three children, playing the role of the father and the mother, making effort to fit into the society as a woman, then a human, these burdens are shoulder crushing. Yet, Hannah told herself she would thrive. She would give her children the best, endure her mean boss because she needs the cash, give out what she can because there are people in worse situations than she is and just live life per second. She stepped out on a busy Monday morning after dropping her kids at [...]
For most people, the last day of every year circumspect around thoughts of events that happened in the present year and making plans towards having a better year the following year. Plans made are mostly based on lessons learnt in the present year. This act has become never-ending, many times an unproductive cycle. Don’t get me wrong, it is a great act to engage in. However, these plans are soon put under the pillow by most people after some days and activities in the New Year. It would later be looked at again in the middle of the year or towards [...]
Christmas for children is about getting that gift they have longed for through the year. A visit to Santa or attending a Christmas party would mean a lot to them too.

Juggling different responsibilities and hardly enjoying Christmas themselves. Yet, this defines the perfect Christmas for many adults, where every bill is settled, events run smoothly [...]
A stack of money, large bundles of them and a very robust bank account is the image that comes to mind when the word ‘Entrepreneur’ is mentioned. The words, ‘I am a businessman or businesswoman. I run my business. I resume anytime I please’, are what majority crave to roll out of their tongues. How convenient? This mind-set has populated our business market. Most people venture into entrepreneurship with little or nodifferent scheme from what is in the business market space. Our business market is filled up with more sellers than buyers. Tales of its impact are on our GDP, with [...]
The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil but by those who watch them without doing anything. -Albert Einstein Citizens of most African countries believe that there are senior citizens with the most power. Citizens who are more powerful than they are. This belief, unknown to many, has its root planted in our educational environment where young minds spend most active hours of the day. It is no hearsay that most teachers are comfortable teaching fast learners than patiently teaching slow learners. This act has given more power to the ‘elite learners’ which expels into the society in [...]
Measurement birthed comparison. What the measuring device is, never bothers us, as far as the result gives us a reason to compare. With age and technology, Social Media has become a measuring device. It has silently, yet emphatically dictated how we should live, what we should wear and eat, how we should look etc. This surreal standard that our screens have built has helped shaped a large pyramid of low self-esteem in our society.
