• 16 inspiring African women series – Part 2 of 4

Hello, Bonjour, Sawubona, Jambo!

A very warm welcome to my digital Queendom: House of Nzinga.

My mission is to create content that will inspire, inform and entertain you.

But first, click here to find more about the blog, my blogging journey and inspiration behind the blog’s name.

Now that you know me a little better, so come on in, make yourself comfortable, find a quiet spot under the large palm trees adorning the Queendom and go on, read 1 or 2 or more articles.

If you are wondering which way to go, I suggest that you start by reading my 4 part series about inspiring African women, to unleash your inner Queen. Click here to read the 1st Part , here for Part 2, here for Part 3 and finally here for Part 4.

Warmest regards,

Patricia Yumba Muzinga, Founder and Blogger-in-chief
