At Sixty, “Still I Rise”! Betty Irabor is a Floral Delight on the Cover of Genevieve Magazine’s Collectors Edition



The March edition of lifestyle magazine Genevieve Magazine is out and on the cover is the beautiful, confident and glowing founder and editor-in-chief, Betty “young forever” Irabor.

The new cover was shared today on their Instagram page and this is what they had to say:

In the spirit of celebrating strong women, we celebrate our Editor in Chief and Publisher, Mrs. Betty Irabor who is our cover girl this month of March.

14 years of publishing, 33 years of marriage and 60 healthy, happy years… What’s not to celebrate?

She talks about becoming a known brand and looking fabulous at any age. She also opens up about her deeply personal battle with depression and her journey to conquering it. What a trouper!!! In the same vein, it’s almost mother’s day and we are celebrating the beauty of motherhood… The highs, the lows and the “Oh no she didn’t”.

Hear Denola Grey, Kaline Akinkugbe, Torera Idowu and their moms tell it all in “Tribute to Motherhood”

Also in this issue, multiple awards winning actor, Somkele Iyamah-Idhalama talks about her daunting fitness journey and dealing with insecurities.

We celebrate the strength of WOMAN in this issue.

We celebrate you!
