When I signed up for the ‘Ruby writes’ competition, I wasn’t too sure what I was getting into, but it turned out to be an amazing experience. I was not only motivated to share my ideas and opinion with the world, I was pushed to improve on my writing skills and to believe in myself more as a woman. I’m forever and entirely grateful to African Rubiz and Dr Kemi Wale-Olaitan for this indelible mark that had being created in my life and I encourage every female undergraduate out there intending to participate in the new edition not to take it for a joke!
