Mizinga Melu’s book Braving the Odds is an outstanding book about the emergence of a great female leader. Mizinga shares her success in rising to the top of a male dominated leadership position. The book brought a few tears as she shared the love, encouragement, heartbreak and dependence of a wise father that encouraged her to go for her goals in life. I loved how she overcame great obstacles on her way to the top. I highly recommend this book as it encouraged me and it will you too, to never give up.
