Wetinhappen.com.ng: One last word for the African, Nigerian and Akwa Ibom woman out there
Pat: “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams” Eleanor Roosevelt. Keep your dreams alive and don’t let “anybody” kill your dreams. For the vision is for an appointed time, though it tarry, the manifestation must surely come, but you have to keep the candle burning, the fire ablaze, and the flag flying. From Princess Pat Akpabio to the World “only God can make a man out of Nothing”. I’m living my dreams, live yours because it’s entirely yours. Much love and soul!
Thank you for your time
Pat: You’re welcome!
