F E M P R E N E U R • ♀️…Medical Doctor turned Multi-passionate Entrepreneur turning into a full-blown badass woman, which I am manifesting for 2019. In the meantime I’ll get on with what’s going on in African business and meet up with my babes later for dinner.
That’s Adanna Steinacker for you!
Popularly known as Adanna David, this vibrant African woman is brave, bold and gutsy. Born in Nigeria, Adanna is a digital influencer/content creator, medical doctor, African humanitarian feminist, motivational speaker and female empowerment coach but importantly, a wife and mother to two sweet boys… wooh, breathe. That’s a lot of roles, right! Makes you wonder, “How does she do it all?”
Perhaps it’s because she’s got a lot of passion and will for what she purposes to do, without having to seek validation from people. You know, if you want to achieve greatness then stop asking for permission.
So what is Adanna passionate about?
She is passionate about female empowerment and humanitarianism. Gender inequality is built into the
organization of marriage and families, work and the economy, politics, religions, the arts and other cultural productions, and the very language we speak. Individuals like Adanna call for changes in the social, economic, political or cultural order, to reduce and eventually overcome this discrimination against women.
“There’s a certain type of confidence that comes when you know yourself. Nothing anyone says can get to you. All you do is laugh & be flattered they still talk about you. Cheers to all the powerful women who know themselves and to the powerful women working towards the same.” – Adanna
With those powerful pillars driving her, she created an opportunity that expands horizons for healthcare professionals known as Medics Abroad.
Medics Abroad is an international healthcare organisation which is redefining medical educational travel experiences in Africa. How so? The organisation manages the logistics of clinical rotations for healthcare professionals all around the world by matching them with thoughtfully curated, all-inclusive arrangements for clinical practice in Africa. This is through; invaluable medical hands-on work experience, community engagement and culture immersion, local travel and accommodation – all in one platform.
It’s a great reminder that we can work, but don’t forget to live.
This is a thought out, strategically planned and well implemented dream. It is creating service, helping people, broadening worldviews, influencing perspectives and touching the lives of many. Did we fail to mention that the team behind it is made up of women?
“Sometimes you’re the only one that sees the bigger picture, and that’s ok!”- Adanna
Adanna is a living creative feminist.
She is also the co-founder and content creator of digital consultancy company, Adanna David Digital Ltd. Alongside her husband David, they manage their social networks, such as their YouTube channel – Adanna David. She uses this platform not only to share about their personal life but also to advocate for feminism, equality, and health education.
Our voices are important and there’s a multitude of platforms that we can use to relay our message. What matters is the message, not the pressures of social media to get the most ‘likes’. Instagram is indeed experimenting with hiding likes. ‘We want your followers to focus on what you share, not how many likes your posts get.’
“In a society where we keep second guessing ourselves and continuously seek validation based on online ‘clicks’ and offline opinions, I count myself lucky to be content with myself. Not losing sleep trying to please anyone but appreciating the gentle pace at which I discover all of me and who I’m meant to be. On this #SelfDiscovery journey the only opinion that truly matters is mine,” says Adanna Steinacker.
With all that, she still brings her fashion A game
How kick-ass is Adanna’s fashion sense?
The vibe Adanna’s style gives us is that of African cultural immersion with a modern, edgy twist. She’s mixing prints and textures. If she’s not rocking a turban, she’s proudly showing off her beautiful locks. To top it all, catch her in a pair of mini sunglasses or classic vintage sunglasses.
All in all, this is a creative emitting some boss up, strong, positive vibes that we are loving!
