Last week I attended my first #MAGMasterclass with my good friends Yemi and Tolu. The event was held by MAGNIFY magazine in Central London. MAGNIFY was created by Ruth Yimika Awogbade, an incredibly inspiring young woman to say the least. Ruth has established a unique platform that creates discussions around the three F’s – faith, feminism and fashion through its print magazine, blog and events. MAGNIFY is designed to give women like myself the opportunity to explore the Christian faith and how it can impact being a woman in today’s world.
“These masterclasses take place on the first Monday of every month in London and are designed to help you master your skills, explore your passion and establish a healthy, balanced and successful working life. Each monthly session is led by two guest experts in their field offering valuable advice for any life stage.” – HelloMagnify.com

MAGNIFY believes that as a generation of women, it’s important that we understand how to spend wisely, know how/where to invest and how to support things we care about with our financial resources.

- How to grow your income
- Learn to invest
- Make a difference
