Hope Erhunmwunse


Hope Erhunmwunse is a graduate of Statistics from Auchi Polytechnic. She is an Inspirational Speaker, a Mindset and Self Awareness Coach and a Talk Show Host. 

Hope has interviewed young women from Nigeria, USA, the U.K, and  Japan since she began the initiative.

In this Interview, Hope shares the story of impacting her community, a life of purpose and her advice for young women.

Tell us about yourself 

I am the founder of the Amazon Lady Network, an NGO I started in 2020 aimed at equipping young women with tools for personal development and self awareness. 

I am also the founder and host of the "The Talk With Hope" show. It's a platform where I  interview guests from around the world. 

My audience gets motivated and educated as guests share lessons from their journeys and their success stories. 

I am very passionate about helping young people transcend beyond their limiting beliefs and fears to unleash their true potentials.


What Challenges did you encounter as you pursued your vision and how did you overcome them?

At first when I had the vision to do all that I am doing today, nobody understood me or my dreams and aspirations. I was the only one that understood what was burning in my heart, because it's my desire to impact lives and the society.

So I decided to go after my dreams,even when no one believed in me. I dared so many things. I was not scared of failure. I always tell myself it's either " I win or I win", there is no going back. 

There is nothing like failure. It's either you win or learn from the experience. To be honest,that mindset has helped me to achieve so many things I couldn't imagine I would achieve. 

It has opened doors of opportunities for me,all  because I had to program my mindset for success, and I am grateful I never gave up on myself and my dreams.



What is one advice you have that will enable women rise to their potential in today's society?

My advice for any woman out there is to never give up on her dreams. I encourage you to never give up on yourself and dreams. Never stop believing in your abilities. Nobody might believe in you, nobody might understand you, but it's ok and it's fine if they don't. You are the only one that can understand yourself better than anyone else.   

Therefore, don't let anyone tell you otherwise. You are endowed with great potentials and you can achieve anything you set your mind to do. I dare you to go after your dreams.

What does living a life of purpose mean to you?


A purposeful life means more than merely seeking adventure and pleasure. A life of purpose is a life of meaning. It's a life where the deep yearning of our heart and soul are met and where we are actually connected to our true design from the very beginning. 

True success to me is living a life purpose which is living out the fullness of all God has destined me to be.

EMEM PATRICK: NOW IS THE BEST TIME

A biblical proverb says train a child in the way he (she) should go... Emem started sewing at an early age.

She also started receiving training in Makeup Artistry. Her motivation for enrolling at a Fashion Design School was to learn “how to sew to avoid an argument with tailors” she said.
