Editor’s Note

The Virtue of Commitment Is Excellence

In my maiden note as executive editor of Nigerian Parents Magazine, I promised our readers a top-notch readership experience. Judging from the responses we received, it was obvious that we met that goal. Your letters came from as far out as Australia and from as far in as Kenya. You made it clear that Nigerians want a media portal that will shift the focus to their stories of success and triumph around the world. Nigerian Parents Magazine is that portal. I am grateful to many of you who wrote, called, or showed support in one form or another. You have made it easier for us to keep to the commitment we made. We understand that the virtue of commitment is excellence. This is the overriding reason why we must keep our commitment to our readers.

But the strive to create our own narratives continues. In this edition we bring new areas of Nigerian diaspora engagement. From social integration to our roles in our children’s education, from the highlight on network impoverishment norms to Nigerian excellence in the United States, we expect that you will continue to be part of the conversation. The goal is to build a stronger and even more prosperous Nigerian diaspora community. Nigerians have achieved so much as individuals, yet as a group, we get the bad end of the stick. Join us as we create a new narrative.

Also, in this edition, we bring you the story of Precious Henshaw. She caught our attention with her beautiful and inspiring art works. Precious started drawing at a young age, no sooner than she learned to hold a pencil. Our interest to profile Precious as a Nigerian Parent feature of the month is not just because of her breathtaking artwork, but also because she is a poster child for the axiom Nigerians are in all walks of life.

As we continue in our effort to create a new Nigerian narrative, we ask that you stay with us. Whether you are regular visitor to Nigerian Parents or first-time visitor, we welcome your suggestions on how we can improve your experience. We know that many of you first want to measure the commitment to the goals we have set, and let me assure you that Nigerian Parents is growing and expanding in reach.
