A few years back, Nancy Mbatika received a “DIY” memoir from her grandparents detailing their personal history—the best gift she ever received. She became passionate about creating a tool to foster storytelling. Her project: a book that would inspire women to tell their stories.

      "I've offered several copies of the book to women in my network who are always very happy to receive this tool. I have started to fill out my own copy; I find it really interesting to look at all these stages of life and leave a trace. I hope to finish it as soon as possible so I can pass it on to my children and relive those memories with them. -  M-Thérèse

      I have received it and bought it for others as well. The reaction is that of being happy to have a tool (the book) to gather one's memories and also it makes us revisit our life and that of our close or distant family. Also in this time of global pandemic, it is important to take note of it and to record our feelings which are real in real time. We are sometimes inclined to forget or embellish or distort our memories . I recommend it to everyone. The women's version, the men's version and now the English version! - Marlene

      What a beautiful idea this book by Nancy Mbatika. A book in which you are the heroine that allows women to take stock of the most important moments of their lives in order to leave a trace of their passage as a legacy. - Isabelle Racicot (TV host)
