Hello all, another week is here. I stay in my mental wellness advocacy realm and want to kick of my sharing this week with a poem I wrote titled: Because I am Human
Because I am human, I have feelings
Because I an human, I have thoughts
Because I am human, I seek to love
Because I am human, I seek to know
Because I am human, I want to be treated as one
P.S: I think if we all embrace our humanity, it wouldn’t be ok to treat anyone as a less human even if they are going through a mental health crisis or challenge for example – that’s my perception, don’t know what others think
Marie Angele Abanga (simplified to 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 and an etc! 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 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.
