“There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish.”Michelle Obama
Half the time, social media is associated with negative vibes from hateful comments to the body-shaming of women. But just like everything else, social media has its pros and cons. It is time we step away from the negatives and look at the positive vibes on the net as well.
It’s now simpler than ever to follow the lives of your favourite people who inspire you whether it’s on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or within the cybersphere in general, creating content that seeks to inspire others intentionally and unintentionally.
I have rounded up 4 favourite social media accounts that will inspire and empower you on the daily basis.
1. Peace Hyde
The media maven who doubles duty at Forbes Africa as its Head, Digital Media, and Partnerships, and as the magazine’s West African correspondent, recently co-created Netflix’s first African reality series, Young, African and Famous. Her social media platforms aim to inspire and motivate her audience with her content, sharing her journey and tips on the evolving media terrain, content creation, and entrepreneurship. Her love for food is evident in her Instagram stories.
2. Abena Brigidi
She is an investment analyst, author, speaker, and CEO of NIMED Capital Limited, making it simple for her followers to begin their investment journeys. Abena creates content on Instagram and her website, to stimulate the desires of young women in the financial sector and educate her audience about making the right money moves. Her Instagram handle @theinvestmentqueen says it all.
3. Ivy Barley
Ivy is the co-founder of Developers in Vogue and a program manager at Microsoft. She is also an advocate for women in tech. Ivy creates content that shares tech tips, career opportunities for women, and how they can build their resumes for those opportunities, you can still learn a lot even if you are not a tech buddy. Ivy is more of a Twitter bird. She hosts the weekly #SpaceswithIvy talk series chatting with professionals to deconstruct and demystify tech careers for interested new entrants.
The former Miss Malaika queen is putting Ghana on the world map through her business the Hamamat African Beauty and Hamamat village and she is not shy of her northern roots. Rather, she lets her roots define her as a woman from the northern part of Ghana. Hamamat is a staunch women empowerment advocator, pushing for black girls to unreservedly love their skin and believe they have a place in this world. Her social media content will whet your appetite for business and will treat you like royalty as her trademark #kingsandqueens hashtag suggests.
Let us know in the comment section who you follow in cyberspace for your daily dose of inspiration.
