We all do it – ignore the stories swirling around us, encapsulated in the intentions, actions and  language of the people around us. We fail to be intentional about how every facet of life like threads intertwine with each other to form a tapestry that becomes life, the life that happens to us. So you see, what we claim we have no control over actually springs up from the interactions of intentions, motivations, actions, reactions and forces as subtle and basic as hope, patience and art.

Under the wings of the Ink Africa Initiative, we are running Hostel as a series which will convey the real life stories of different, unique women whom the author met during the course of her formal education. The stories will be told from a place of a true yearning for understanding of otherness and humanity fits into different beings to create an unintended and perhaps, unperceived harmony of experiences that will someday be termed “history”.

We hope that you reach into yourself and find a place within that these people’s stories resonate with, and that you can learn see and imbibe patience, love, hope and courage in their most raw and unlikely forms.

Hostel is written to address mindsets and social values as reflected in the experiences of young African women in Nigeria, from the authors point of view.

Have a great read, express your thoughts, reach out to us and share this experience with women and men who you think need a lesson or two to learn.
