As I begin my 36th year today, there’s so much to be grateful for.
Reflecting this morning, I will admit that life has been kind to me.
Doing an amazing job that comes with its own shade of ups and downs but above all giving me such an incredible privilege and honour to touch lives through storytelling- some of which have been tough, demanding, sometimes dark too but above all exciting and self-revealing.
And in the context of that and after an experience of Nervous Breakdown last year and speaking openly about it on several platforms, I also now want to extend same space to all the people doing great work but haven’t had time or get so immersed in work that they forget to look after themselves. So this is the birth of my Podcast “How are You with Amaka Okoye”.
I am inspired by the great women and men in the frontlines who have keyed in and happy to let out some air and breathe in the space that this podcast offers.
For me, life is beautiful and we should have the chance to live it to the full
This will go up on my website amakaokoye.com and other platforms as well.
Cheers to 36!
Cheers to the beginning of something new and exciting!
