Misred honoured by Facebook




Misred honoured by Facebook. Radio and television personality Samantha ‘MisRed’ Musa flies Zimbabwe’s flag in this edition. Available for free in digital and physical formats, the book provides inspirational real-life stories for future generations and young leaders.

As part of its celebrations on International Women’s Month, Facebook last week announced the launch of ‘LeadHERs: Life Lessons From African Women’, a collection of beautifully inspired stories and life advice from 19 women who are breaking boundaries in fields such as media, entertainment, politics, education and business.

Each chapter focuses on a personal experiences and life lessons on how these women have navigated their path to success, alongside the challenges they have had to overcome along the way. ‘LeadHERs: Life Lessons from African Women’ is aimed at encouraging, inspiring and guiding the reader — no matter the background, age or ambition.

‘LeadHERs: Life Lessons from African Women’ follows on from the successful 2020 launch of ‘Inspiring #Changemakers: Lessons from Life and Business’ in South Africa. This 2021 book is further brought to life through a series of beautifully illustrated artwork specially commissioned from four female artistes from across the continent — Massira Keita from Côte d’Ivoire, Lulu Kit-ololo from Kenya, Karabo Poppy from South Africa, and Awele Emili from Nigeria. With over 5,000 copies printed, the book will be provided for free to a number of Facebook’s local training partners including She Leads Africa, Fate Foundation, DigifyAfrica, Siyafunda, Smart Ecosystems for Women and cCHub.

Misred African heritage book

These will be distributed across 15 countries, including South Africa, Nigeria, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Liberia, Senegal and Kenya — in schools and to beneficiaries of training offered by Facebook partners.

Nunu Ntshingila, Regional Director, Facebook Africa, said: “At Facebook, we know that African women are at the helm of shaping the future of our promising continent — they are change-makers, mothers and CEOs.

This book is a celebration of just some of the exceptional African women who in their own right are trail-blazers, motivating and inspiring people and advocating for good across Africa, and the world. We’re excited about their individual stories, inspired by challenges they’ve endured and how they’ve risen above these, and importantly how they’ve turned these into important life lessons to help inspire others.”
