ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Oghomwen (Owen) Jones has a bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Finance. She got married soon after her university education and was a housewife for over 25 years. Owen lost her husband in 2017. Following her husband’s death, she found herself in a very dark place, a situation she navigated by holding on tenaciously to her faith in God. Owen volunteered at the Alvin Ailey School in the late 1990s and an orphanage in Nigeria between 2007-9. She currently spearheads her church’s health initiative on cancer prevention measures. She finds this fulfilling as it gives her a sense of purpose in life.
