In celebration of International Women’s Day this past Sunday, I had the chance to speak briefly with Yetunde A. Odugbesan-Omede about her powerful new bookA Young Woman’s Guide. I was truly inspired by her fearlessness at sharing her personal story as well as advice on how young women can put their best selves forward.
