Harriet holds a Master’s in Business Administration from Ambrose Alli University. She has published a book, The Night After Wedding, where you will find in every chapter, a plethora of principles, ideas and practical techniques that will enable you to harness the tremendous power of preparation before marriage. Harriet tells us that Marriage is a journey and like every journey, one needs a map showing potential areas of contours, valleys, faults and folds, towards reaching one’s destination successfully without asking for much direction from people who could mislead you on your way. In recent times, some single ladies are not well informed on what marriage entails, and this has led to avoidable disagreements in many homes to the extent of dissolution. It has become imperative that single ladies should be adequately and properly educated especially before and even during marriage to be able to fulfill God’s will in marriage. As we spend fortunes and resources training daughters in academic institutions, we should also invest our time, resources and prayers in preparing ladies for marital life.
Harriet is an advocate and founder of Raising Daughters Foundation, and is currently raising awareness of a “discussion we shy away from,” which is the challenge of menstruation and the obstacles women have to overcome. In her article, she brings to light how “menstruation remains one of the back-burner as a global health and development challenge.” Harriet is launching a campaign for Raising Daughters Foundation, where sanitary pads will be donated to the less privileged ones. The foundation is based around the fact that when you hold girls and women back from progress, you hold the world back.
Harriet continues to strive to make a difference for women around the world through fashion, advocacy, skills acquisition, counseling and resources for women who desire knowledge and community.
