Are you ready for this?

MANASHANTII = AFRICAN, VEGAN, BUDDHIST, HUMANIST, WRITER'S WEBSITE - There's an oxymoron in there somewhere struggling to break free I feel sure.

Manashantii reveals herself as a vegan feminist, born in Accra,the capital of Ghana who came to London aged nine. She believes in putting her faith and trust in humanity first before Religion or God and practicing love, peace, understanding and Buddhist meditation.

Some of the women she admires are Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Nawal El Saadawi, Alice Walker, Rebecca Walker, Toni Morrison, Jhelisa Anderson and Amel Larrieux.

The men she admires most are Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jnr. Bhante Buddharakkhita,Thich Nhat Hahn,Russell Simmons, Ajahn Karuniko and of course Dalai Lama (Tenzin Gyatso).
