Thank you Maureen, because of you I have been able to reignite what the essence of my womanhood really means. I won’t stop because I feel like it; I will continue because I must, even if I end up an ‘hidden figure’. Hidden Figures is a powerful movie and I strongly recommend that every single blog reader watch it: male or female. 

Hidden Figures is a 2016 American biographical drama film directed by Theodore Melfi and written by Melfi and Allison Schroeder, based on the non-fiction book of the same name by Margot Lee Shetterly about African American female mathematicians who worked at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) during the Space Race. The film stars Taraji P. Henson as Katherine Johnson, a mathematician who calculated flight trajectories for Project Mercury and other missions.”—Wikipedia

My Number One Lesson

There is nothing as formidable as a confident woman. 

Hidden Figures - Taraji P. Hensen

Take it or leave it, this fact remains. 

Years ago, we would equate ‘confident woman’ to ‘proud’, ‘uncouth’, ‘egoistic’ and oh well, everything negative. These days, the awakening is ‘rude’ and intense and all-round positive. 

Right within us, we have many of the things we need to survive and prosper, to impact and cause a revolution but we withdraw into ourselves for fear of failure and other people’s opinions. Damn all of that and be the best Engineer, the best Cook, the best Seamstress. Be the best Writer! Be the best ‘anything you find yourself doing at any point in time.’

Develop yourself, learn aggressively, pursue your dreams with all of your passion and your might. Unapologetic-ally own your dreams. Strive for excellence and remember that you can do more, that you can be more and that it is never enough. A confident woman is never afraid to be the first. Yes, there will be that tiny little voice to warn that you are a peanut sized instrument in the midst of men and experts in vast, insurmountable fields but you can once and for all shuuush it and move on like it’s your last leg to gold.

I really would like that you watch this movie. Hidden Figures is for every woman in every corner and still in the spirit of the International Women’s Day I dare you to #beboldforchange

    Finally, a blogger gets to talk about Hidden Figures. I like that you do movie reviews. Taraji Henson was awesome in that movie. I liked her acting. I also liked Big Bang Theory's star in the movie. Buhahahahahahahahahaha, he looked so serious and 'normal'

    1. Thank you Olaoluwa. Thank you.

      Sheldon of BBT looked so weird in such a more serious movie. I was looking at him through the eyes of BBT. Ahahahahahahah…. Even his face in the movie made me laugh! Gosh. I haven't gotten over his BBT acting.
