Hello everyone. MUSLIMWERS is back and I’m sorry it didn’t come up as promised last week but hey, it’s back and even better.

So, I got some really good feedback about this movement/project. Especially how inspiring it has been to some people. Thus, I decided to do something new.

I took it beyond the shores of Nigeria! MUSLIMWERS is now an African thing because there many hardworking African Muslim Women who are doing well in their fields and you might just be inspired.

Don’t stop reading because you don’t want to miss the bio I have compiled for you. It is WOMEN, BLACK, AFRICAN, our own WAKANDA – BLACK PANTHER; our #MUSLIMWERS.

WARNING: If you’re not ready for a fuel of inspiration, don’t go further but who are we without inspiration?

Of course, there are women you don’t get to come across their page every day. But, you should because you need their stories to inspire yours. So I went round Africa to bring them to you.

Aminat OdunEwu-Seese is the founder and owner of Striving For Modesty. Originally from Lagos, Nigeria but raised in Chicago, Aminat noticed how difficult it was to find modest clothes that fitted properly on women who were tall and slim as well as the rarity of finding actual jilbabs in the US.

This realization coupled with her natural entrepreneurial spirit is what gave birth to Striving For Modesty. Thankfully, she didn’t want to only cater to tall or slim women but women of all body types. This is why SFM carries petite, long and plus sizes. Everyone is served!
