My Mother, popular known as Professor Bamgboye by many or "MAMA" by her numerous students all over the world . My mother is an amazing woman she a trailblazer in so many ways, She was the first Professor and first female Professor of Chemisty in at the Univeristy where she worked. She was first female Dean of science as well; She was also the first and first female Deputy vice chancellor at the same University to metnion a few firsts. She reached the pinnacle of her career while taking care of 4 children even after her husband passed away.
Even with all the accolades and achievements, what I really love and adire about my mom is who she is. She is a child of God and she trained us in the way of the Lord from a very young age. I used to wonder why she took this "Jesus" thing so serious when I was a little girl....lol. She made sure her kids came first, you couldn't tell me we didn't have a genie in our home growing up, because everyday when we get back from school we just put our uniforms all over and maracleously they appear washed and iron the next morning like magic (Now I know who the genie was...lol)
For those that don't know, my mom inspired the name of my blog. She used to encougrage us to study the bible and memorize many verses, one of the many verses was Phillipian 4:13. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthes me".
My Mom is my Proverbs 31 woman.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
Her children arise and call her blessed
