Re-defining age with Faith Agugu

Jun 20, 2022

In episode 39, Mel and Trish chat to one of their 50ish idols Faith Agugu about re-defining ageing and what exactly that means.

Faith founded Silver Sirens in 2018 as a way of offering women an alternative narrative to ageing. Specifically, she wanted to push back and disrupt the negative stereotypes associated with women and ageing. The fifteen guiding principles of the Silver Sirens include ideas such as emboldening women to embrace the ageing process, discouraging the judgement of women based on her age, weight, body shape, beauty, success, or failures and always, encourages individual expression.

Faith sees midlife as a time to thrive, when we can finally begin to explore our own agency, reclaim our passions and purpose, create opportunities to fulfill our full potential and explore our own dreams and desires. She is a powerhouse of positivity and a joy to listen to.

Faith is also a psychotherapist with a degree in Social Sciences majoring in counselling and runs a private practice, The Healing Process.

Enjoy every moment of this remarkable 50isher.
