Women and Their Unlimited Potential
Women who want to overcome challenges lead a very interesting life. Look no further than Esther Nenadi Usman for proof of that. Women have an unlimited potential waiting to come out, and, when it does, they have a tendency to change the world.
Who Is Nenadi Esther Usman?
Senator Nenadi Esther Usman is the former finance minister from the southern Kaduna state in Nigeria. She broke the mold as a woman becoming a minister, and a minister in economic and financial affairs as well. Not just that, being from Kaduna, she was bound by many traditions, which she decided to overcome – for that is the power of woman. Esther Nenadi became Esther Nenadi Usman when she married her husband. While that is not shocking in itself, what is unusual considering where they are from, is the fact that Nenadi is Christian and Usman and Muslim. Esther shows in this the unlimited and untapped potential of women, and for that, she is a role model.
Challenges to Be Overcome by Women
Women’s empowerment and feminisms are now subjects that can be openly discussed. Women like Esther Usman stating that further equality is necessary is not new anymore. What is new, however, is that they are being listened to. This is what Nenadi Esther almost forced to happen. She understands like no other the challenges still faced by so many women, and young women in particular. The unequal access to healthcare, education, finances, ownership, and more continues to be concerning.
By raising awareness of this, she is fulfilling her potential of being a true, unique, and powerful woman. But mainly, she is fulfilling her destiny of being a role model for other women, who have the potential of achieving the same greatness. Like many other people, Esther Nenadi believes that a woman’s greatest downfall is believing that they must support men, that men will somehow fail if they are not supported by a woman.
In reality, this means that they sell themselves short. Men should be raised by powerful women who show them that their failures are their own to hold. Powerful women, meanwhile, should show their men that they are independent, reliable, intelligent, resourceful, and more. Women like Esther Nenadi Usman are one of many women in Nigeria who are committed to this.
Throughout history, there have been strong, powerful women. Women like Esther Nenadi, Rosa Parks, Nanga Parbet, Jacqueline Cochran, Helen Keller, Oprah Winfrey, and more. Those women are not somehow “special” or different to other women. They simply stood up for what they believed in and hoped that, in so doing, other women would follow suit. And they have been incredibly successful at achieving this, although much more needs to be done.
For Nenadi, what still needs to be done is ensure that the next generation understands the importance of equality. She wants to make sure that the young girls of today become the strong women of tomorrow. Hence, she continues to focus on equal access to education, healthcare, and finances, thereby building her country up.
