I was completely deflated, both physically and emotionally, but I persevered because my father always wanted me to be a ‘Doctor’. This powerful survival instinct in me, which I call daring, and God’s help, are what made me overcome all personal challenges during my doctoral program and get to where I am today”- * “I admire the way Florence delved inside the most painful period of her life to find the focus of her research on women, war and peace. She received the Sasakawa Peace Foundation Fellowship in her last year to conduct interviews with 10 female survivors of that war, and she used [the] feminist standpoint theory to interpret their stories. It is a beautifully researched, theorized, and written dissertation that demonstrates exceptional Howard scholarship”- Carolyn Byerly, Ph.D., Didigu’s advisor and chair of the Communication, Culture and Media Studies doctoral program *BY GEORGE ELIJAH OTUMU/AMERICAN FOREIGN BUREAU CHIEF
