Peace Ella-Maxwell

“I am an orphan, I have the first-hand experience I lost my father early in life so I was able to witness what widows go through. My mother and I went through hell when my dad died so all these things prepared my mind for the course of the widows.” These were words from the Abia State but Lagos born visionary, Ella Maxwell during a chat with DG the other day on her way to Abuja.

The drop-dead beauty who runs an NGO called Vessel of Mercy Int'l, an organization which caters for widows and fatherless children set up the organization to restore hope, empower lives to realize their potential in life. Ella is a passionate and highly compassionate orator. She's a writer and motivational speaker whose book on 'Such A Time Like This' a book on time management has been lauded by people as the best.

The single but not searching damsel is in Abuja as you are reading this to tidy up some talks with the ministry of women affair on a her next project which would involved women and youths in the society.
