IBOGIRL BOSS OF THE DAY: MRS BIODUN DA-SILVA

 It is images and covers such as these that ought to motivate every young woman to strive for success and while many may argue that Kylie Jenner is not worthy of a Forbes Cover because she already comes from "wealth", I think she ought to be commended for what she has been able to do for herself. It would have been easier to simply be content with being a "rich kid" but she decided to go out on her own, build herself an empire in the process and now she is set to be the youngest female billionaire in the next year. If that isn't considered motivation for you then I'm not sure what could be.

STAYING MOTIVATED

We all come to that point in life, regardless of age , when things stop making sense to us for a bit and we can't really identify what our purpose is or where we fit in. Nothing is adding up, very little brings us joy and the motivation to do anything at all is simply lacking. But the question is why do we feel this way sometimes? I probably asked myself this question everyday for the first few years of my 30s and I came up with 2 possible reasons:

SCD & THE IMPORTANCE OF GOOD NUTRITION

 It goes without saying that fluid intake is very important for people with SCD as this helps prevent the sickle cells from sticing and causing pain. However, the importance of a good and healthy diet can not be over-emphasized because eating well helps sickle cell sufferers with the much needed energy boost required to catch up with their peers. Good Nutrition for people with sickle cell is necessary to promote health and prevent complications and their diet should consist of plenty of calories, vitamins, minerals and protein. Folic acid supplements are usually always also prescribed by a doctor to help produce new cells and I know that this is something my brother and sister have had to take everyday of their lives without fail.
