Maha-Mantra for women

I will win.

I will win because I am determined to win. I may not know how, but I will ask, I will research, I will google, I will pray and I will knock doors. The doors may not be opened and that may discourage me for just a little while. I will cry and call my girlfriends so that I can pour my heart out. I will gather courage slowly and steadily. I will build my own door, a strong iron door and then with all my might I will kick it, and it will fall down and I will go through. I will then rush to my dreams and I will conquer all the odds because I am a woman.

Create my own opportunities

I will not wait for opportunities to fall at my feet neither will I have wishful thinking. No. I will look for opportunities that will favor my career growth as an individual. Opportunities that will make me utilize my talents and gifts. And yes if I don’t find these opportunities, I will create mine. I will be an inspiration to others that it is possible to succeed. I will lead and I will learn from others because I am a woman.

My time to succeed

I will win because I understand that this is my time. Strong women never came before me to show me how to throw in the towel. My mother sacrificed her career to be a stay -at -home mum. My grandmother sold her land that I may go to the university. My aunties, all PHD holders wouldn’t expect any less of me. The women I admire the most like Prof Olive Mugenda and Julie Gichuru did not make it to the top so that I feel discouraged. These women only got to the peak of the mountain to show us that it is possible to succeed. The odds may not be favorable for me all the time, but calm waters never made skilled sailors. I will look up to them and I will scale the mountain and I will make it in life; because I am a woman.

I refuse to be discouraged

I am a woman. I am a woman who walks tall no matter how often I step on hot coals. I cry when I am meant to laugh and I laugh when I am meant to cry. I put on make up to hide my eye bags. I put on a power suit to appear like I have it all together. I put on heels to appear taller. I move forward consistently to get to my dreams because my success is a win to the society. When I win, everybody wins.

I feed my mind

I realize that my outer beauty will fade with time but my inner beauty can only get better. So I feed my mind with knowledge by reading consistently, by writing a journal and by attending conferences. I know that ordinary women have huge televisions but extra ordinary women have huge libraries. I practice kindness and generosity. I speak words of encouragement and I smile all the time. I give back to the society through volunteering and helping the needy. I realize that to go up, you have to pull more people with you.

I refuse to be undermined and discouraged by people who don’t know where I am going. I am ambitious, talented and gifted and no one can ever take that from me. My dreams are valid because I am a woman.

What is your barrier?

So what are you holding yourself from? Go for your dreams, reach for the stars. The sky ceased to be the limit, it is the standard. Have a great support system. Be yourself; everyone else is taken. Keep off bad company for it will corrupt you. Climb the mountain high enough that it would be so hard to come down. Have the courage to use the stones thrown at you to build a firm foundation.

And now success is yours

Define success on your on terms, achieve it by your own rules and build a life you are proud to live. Anne Sweeney.

You are a successful woman, act like one.

# Ebola, A Doctor Treats Ebola Patients with HIV drugs

A doctor in rural Liberia inundated with Ebola patients says he's had good results with a treatment he tried out of sheer desperation: an HIV drug.

Dr. Gobee Logan has given the drug, lamivudine, to 15 Ebola patients, and all but two survived. That's a 7% mortality rate.

Across West Africa, the virus has killed 70% of its victims.

Outside Logan's Ebola center in Tubmanburg, four of his recovering patients walk the grounds, always staying inside the fence that separates the Ebola patients from everyone else.

"My stomach was hurting; I was feeling weak; I was vomiting," Elizabeth Kundu, 23, says of her bout with the virus. "They gave me medicine, and I'm feeling fine. We take it, and we can eat -- we're feeling fine in our bodies."

Kundu and the other 12 patients who took the lamivudine and survived, received the drug in the first five days or so of their illness. The two patients who died received it between days five and eight.

"I'm sure that when [patients] present early, this medicine can help," Logan said. "I've proven it right in my center."

Logan is mindful that lamivudine can cause liver and other problems, but he says it's worth the risk since Ebola is so deadly.

He also knows American researchers will say only a real study can prove effectiveness. That would involve taking a much larger patient population and giving half of them lamivudine and the other half a placebo.

"Our people are dying and you're taking about studies?" he said. "It's a matter of doing all that I can do as a doctor to save some people's lives."

Logan said he got the idea to try lamivudine when he read in scientific journals that HIV and Ebola replicate inside the body in much the same way.

"Ebola is a brainchild of HIV," he said. "It's a destructive strain of HIV."

At first he tried an HIV drug called acyclovir, but it didn't seem to be effective. Then he tried lamivudine on a healthcare worker who'd become ill, and within a day or two he showed signs of improvement and survived.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases says that theoretically, Logan's approach has some merit. Lamivudine is a nucleocide analog, and other drugs in this class are being studied to treat Ebola.

Fauci asked CNN to give Logan his email address, saying perhaps his lab could do some follow up work.

Logan says he plans to email Fauci this weeken
