This is the autobiography of Eunice Atuejide, the 2019 Presidential Flagbearer of the National Interest Party (NIP) – a technology driven political party founded and predominantly run by young Nigerians under the age of 40. Eunice is the founder and National Chairman of NIP, and currently the youngest woman to ever run for the Presidency in Nigeria. She is very popular for her non-acceptance of the feminist tag – she claims with much emphasis that she is not a feminist!The Girl Who Said ‘I Can!’ is the story of Eunice’s life from childhood to the 2019 Nigerian presidential elections which she was one of only six women to take part. The book tells of her early days in the slums of Iwaya, her tumultuous relationships, her sojourn through Europe and America, and the journey to Nigerian politics. The books captures her life in very simple and relatable highly descriptive stories. It is a must read for Africans in the diaspora, young women – particularly of African descent. Women who rose from grass to grace will also find Eunice’s story compelling and so would those wishing to find their footing in business, politics, career, education, even life generally.Eunice’s story is a very inspiring one. Highly recommended to everyone looking for a lift.
