It’s a different world…

It's a different world

It’s a different world from where l come from
In this world men open car doors
And women walk the pets
what a different world
From the one l grew up in
We both do the groceries and why not the cooking?
Could a world be this different?
I had only nursed my fantasies
With precious glimpses on the internet
But then fate thrust me in that world
By circumstances far from funny
I sacrificed all I had
to try my luck in this new world
It so happened that l was ready
to overcome my threatening insanity
And do all it takes to adapt to my new world
l am glad to say l must have come a long way
And that this different world is indeed my current world

Gratitude all the way
Gratitude all the way

Marie Abanga aka MAG likes to describe herself as a “Jacqueline of several trades”. She is an everyday woman and mother with a zigzag profile. Let’s give it a try! She is an Activist, an Author, a Coach, a Consultant, a Feminist, a Lawyer, a Lecturer, a Prince 2 Project Manager, a Psychotherapist, a Philanthropist, a minister of the Word of God and...! She just loves to sum it up by saying she is a person of passions and a tale of talents. Her life’s journey has filled over 6 books already and her three musketeers keep her busy at home. MAG is also the founder and CEO of the association Hope for the Abused and Battered, and the Country Director of the Gabriel Bebonbechem Foundation for Epilepsy & Mental wellbeing. The plethora of life's experiences and shenanigans she has lived through and learned from in near 4 decades of existence, have equipped her with such an arsenal to coach, train and motivate just any and everyone. She is so charismatic, dynamic and full of life, going by her designed mantra of 3Ds: Determination; Discipline and Dedication. These sum her+her quest to be the best version of herself and impact others perfectly. She attributes all her wealth of knowledge to her conscientious attendance of both informal and formal school.
