Nina Dafe is a British born Nigerian living in the UK, she has a real love for communication; as such she is a Speech and Language Therapist by profession with a real passion for blogging, writing and teaching. Her writing style consists of poetry, reflections and essays- all of which have been tied into her book compositions about the matriarchs of the Christian faith. She is most inspired by seeing people manifest their potential through the execution of their God-given talents, vision and purpose. She hopes to empower women, especially, to rise up and demonstrate such gifts through efforts such as The Far Above Rubies Collection (Faraboverubiescollection.com). She is currently an e-member of The Potters House (Dallas).Enjoy!

Admittedly I didn’t find the joke funny, not because it was poking fun at another human being but simply because it as funny as unemployment. HOWEVER, other people DID find it funny and the subject of the joke felt it necessary to ‘clear the air’ on the nexus of the whole thing.
