There are many people out there who are trying to make the world a better place in their own little way, be it through their philantrophic activities, education, religious activities and many other ways. One of such is Lum Irine Asanji (aka Lia LordIs Able or simply Lia on her social media platforms), a Cameroonian based in Canada who was recently nominated for the 2016 Cameroon Career Women Awards under the Inspirational Category.

For those who follow her work, it is not suprising that she was nominated under the ‘Inspirational’ category as  Lia is an author, a minister and motivational speaker who also runs a Marriage and Family Enrichment Service called Talktoliawhere she provides various services ranging from prayer and counseling services, public speaking, and much more. In May 2015, the multi-talented Lia was presented the prestigious Canada 100 Black Women to Watch Award by the Canada International Black Women Event (CIBWE). Not a bad addition to her resume and list of accomplishments! 🙂

With an educational background in Journalism and Mass Communication where she completed her B.Sc. from the University of Buea in Cameroon, its no wonder that Lia is a natural when it comes to media. “The Talktolia Show” is a series of shows that provides inspirational messages, general life experiences and much more so make sure to check it out on! It is amazing how this diva does it all! By the way, make sure you get a copy of her book called “PHONECALL IN THE RAIN: Inspirational Journey to the Heart of a Growing Born Again Mother.” which was published and re-published in 2011 and 2013 respectively.

As if this is not enough, Lia is the proud mother of two lovely children (seen on her book cover above). It’s great to see Cameroonian’s making a positive impact to society and for that we wish Lia good luck in her nomination and keep up the great work. For more information on Lia and her work, visit her Website and Facebook page. *Photo Credit: All pictures provided to THJ courtesy of Lia*

    What a beautifully written article on a very awesome woman, and I am a proud Cameroonian to recognize her talents and gifts. Mbole, a tastefully done representation of Irene’s class act presence on the inspirational speaker community, you do her justice and you make me even more proud to know you. Thank you for continuing to shine the light on talent that might otherwise not be seen as far and wide as they should, but thanks to this amazing medium you have here, The Hotjem, the world gets to enjoy more gifts like Irene. Keep soaring both of you.
