My Woman Crush Wednesday is Uche Pedro. Founder and managing director of Bellanaija.com
Uche Pedro started Bellanaija as a hobby in 2006. when the website started growing, she could have remained docile and continued exactly what she was doing as she was doing it, she could have made money anyway. What she did was dive in more strategically, putting deeper thoughts and meaning into her website, changing the look of it, adding more segments but basically still maintaining her chore values. Hence creating a website that will thrive long after she’s gone.
You may have noticed, the messages passed on from her website are socially influential as well as entertaining, always with an undertone of positivity, inspiration and class. Obviously this website was not founded based on boredom alone, there is a very smart brain behind it.
During her feature on the Oprah Winfrey show, she reiterated how beauty must go right along with brains, according to her, “It is very important for a woman to be smart, driven and educated.”
Is there any wonder she got the award for best blogger in Africa?
