    What about the men then? How come we can’t win too?

    • Hahaha! CAW supports men too. We are working on the giveaway for guys in a few months. You’re the 4th person asking me this😂

    Being able to set goals and have aspirations that have yet to be reached in my family makes me a Contemporary African Woman. I am able to achieve what has yet to be done and close the gap between dreams and reality.

  3. I’m not African, but I’m black American. My roots are tied to Africa and I’m working on reestablishing that connection to the Motherland by educating myself on different cultures. I quit my job to be able to spend time with my son. From that step, I started making jewelry inspired by African culture. I am a Contemporary African Woman because I take strides to secure my future in every aspect. I create a life that I’m happy living. I not only survive, I thrive! A characteristic that is evident in every single Contemporary African Woman. 🙂

    • I love this😻! This is very inspiring! “I not only survive, I thrive!” – Yassss girlll👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 I’m stealing that😁

    What makes me a Contemporary Woman is that I know what it took to get me where I am so I work harder to get where I need to be. “No” is motivation to me. Negative statements push me forward. If someone says no I will work harder to prove them wrong because nothing will get in the way of all I have worked for. I live everyday pushing through, trying to get better in any circumstance with my family by my side. Previous failure will not bring me down. Living in this world has taught me to always finish what I started because opportunity only knocks once.

  5. Few women have played a publicized significant role in African development and I plan to be one. This desire was the impetus in my pursuit of a master’s in public administration, after which I lived and worked in naija for 14months serving widows and sexually abused youth with our team at Blessing O. Foundation Int’l.

    What makes me a Contemporary Woman is the fact that i strive for the best! Regardless of where i am in life, i know i can do bettter for myself. Growing up, making a B in a class was considered failure or an “okay” grade. Using this as a motivation everyday, I always strive for better things than i had yesterday and the days before.

    What makes me a contemporary African woman is How I represent my culture in my day-to-day life, how bold, courageous, and intelligent I am. Being an African woman makes me never to give up on negative comments or bullies rather it inspires me to keep pushing in other to excel in life. Being African woman is all about hard work and love, that’s why I enjoy being the pride of Africa. I do not compare in other to compete, but rather to motivate myself.

    I love my top. It looks beautiful on my smooth deep chocolate skin.
