Anita Erskine is an award-winning broadcast professional with almost 20 years of media industry experience and a desire to make immense social changes in the lives of women across the globe. She is also the founder and creative director of Brand Woman Africa, which is designed to empower women and girls by showcasing advancements in women’s issues and bringing attention to women accomplishing amazing things in Africa and beyond through popular media.
Anita would like to share the following with you:
“My biggest life lesson was learned during what I call The Bridge – that space between when I was a Young Professional Woman with a Dream and when I became a Career Mother and Wife with a Passion. It was the toughest time of my life. Which I can also say, was a beautiful moment of realization for me. On one hand, I was trying to keep my dreams valid because I knew there was a lot I could do professionally. On the other hand, my situation was helping me cultivate a deeper understanding of my purpose. I was also learning to develop a plan for what I was going to do for Women – Young and Mature included.”
With everything I have seen, been through and learned, I have a piece of advise for Women “You can have everything you want – you just can’t have it all at the same time. Focus on the eventual picture and don’t forget the Effort you need to commit to it!”
