There’s been the International Day of the Girl Child (October 11) and I finished off the month by attending Women Mean Business Live on October 31, a conference powered by a UK newspaper, The Telegraph.

My Pastor’s Message Pushed Me Into Acting – Theresa Edem Isemin

I was born in Akwa Ibom State. I am from a family of five – with three brothers and a step sister. My dad died when I was nine-year-old but my mum is still here with us. As a kid, I was very inventive and creative. I had a highly imaginative side and was a fast reader. Though I was reserved, I would still play rough with my brothers at home. At school, I was shy and always kept the play for home. Because I was the only girl; resulting from my parents waiting a long time to have me, I was very well-pampered. As a kid, I had many ambitions. I wanted to be a pilot, and then, an air hostess, an aeronautic engineer and even a musician. I guess I got the love of air from my dad who worked in the aviation line as well. Education For my elementary education, I attended Hillside Internati...
