Good morning all

Happy Canada Day! Hope you and your loved ones find time to join this great country in celebrating yet another anniversary in its illustrious history. For the July edition we have lots of goodies for our readers. Top Story is the second annual graduate celebration hosted by the Young Leaders’ Advisory Council  to honour the 2019 graduates from the national capital’s post-secondary schools. For the Interview, we bring you our conversation with three of the graduates.

Our Associate Editor Kika Otiono is heading to Hamilton for medical School at McMaster University. We honour her with a report on her journey so far by way of a fond farewell. In our Religion piece, we introduce to Rev Bassey Ekong of the Light of Nations Ministry who will be contributing to our magazine from time to time. Under Social we bring you a report of Bridget Ofili’s 50th birthday bash with family and friends.  Our career expert Dr. Helen Ofosu gives readers insight into the thorny issue of time management, while financial guru Meiz Majdoub provides different investment options under Managing your money.

On a sad note, we bring you the sad news of the passing of Valerie Muchenje, at the young age of 46.  Black Ottawa Scene wishes husband Zvodai and his family, God’s blessings in dealing with their loss.

All these and more in the July edition of Black Ottawa Scene.

Here is the result of the June 2019 poll:

Did you attend the recent forum in Ottawa with former President Barack Obama?

Yes 60%

No 40%

Thank you to all who voted. Remember to vote in the July 2019 poll: Do you feel the Toronto Raptors have the capacity to win the 2020 NBA championships?

All the very best and hope you keep the Letters to the Editor coming.
