Entrepreneur, author and philanthropist, Maureen Eno is known for her desire to empower women and children in need throughout the world. She founded “Life By Her Design”, a consulting firm curated to empower the everyday woman through self-development coaching, sisterhood in communities and through stories told by influential women around the world.
In her work as founder also of “Echoes of A Kora”, she has helped over 100 underprivileged young boys and girls attend primary schools in her native Ugep, Cross River State, Nigeria, with year-long basic school supplies and housing. Maureen has interviewed change makers and entrepreneurs on a global level.
Growing up, Maureen always imagined herself writing stories through poetry and literature for pretty much anything and everything. She always found herself creating more stories about life in Africa, which she encountered through her many extended trips with her parents and siblings. As she grew older, Maureen started to notice the almost absence of factual information influencing the minds of the world about Africa. She wondered why it was so hard to find more real stories of how truly poor, dysfunctional or corrupt Africa is. “I wondered why I couldn’t find stories of the traditions and diversely rich culture elegantly wrapping the whole length of the continent”, she told www.calitown.com
This delectable lady attempts answers to all of this with her inspired responses that have found expression in her written work(s) for African children. Without baiting an eyelid she maintains that her goal is to create a blistering impact and ginger awareness as she showcases the richness of her Nigerian roots along with stories of other countries across Africa.
“Koton and The Courageous King Of Kindness”, the twenty six paged book, is loosely based on the relationship between her mother, grandfather and her experiences with raising her little brother after Koton’s father passed away. The story represents what it means to love and live fearlessly. It also exposes children to more cultural diversity and a pristine tenderness that is sublime. Written with an easy free flowing style, the book delivers in accurate purpose and eye appeal lettering, something to delight the kids with as well as give them an identity that is not a token. Beautifully, the book comes with an added pep; a children’s colouring book and importantly, it can be purchased on amazon.com
