Fabulous quote from one of our guests at our last Read to Lead meet-up on Power, Politics and Women; the 2nd and final part of our 'Becoming' series - a 2 part review of Michelle Obama's best-selling memoir, Becoming.
Congratulations to Ena Abenabe, winner of the next book on our read list, Oyinkan Braithwaite's 'My Sister, the Serial Killer'.

If you missed Friday's Read to Lead, then you missed a great evening of candid, informative, and engaging conversation.
We kicked off with 'Becoming Me', the first part of Michelle Obama's best-selling memoir, 'Becoming'. We touched on topics from affirmative action, to the perceived entitlement mentality of millenials, and outliers for whom the stars always seem to be aligned.
Thank you to all who attended and to our moderator, Dr. Damilola Akinsete. You were all absolutely amazing. Congratulations to Jennifer Obulo and Martha Ogbole on winning our free copies of 'Becoming'. Our next meeting will pick up where we left off as we plan to dive into the second part of the book, 'Becoming Us'.
