We are wondering why she has these many names but where she hails from, the more names you have, the more important you’re to society.
Patting herself for the many names, Nordreen Mbekeka Luck Luwalala, growing up with eight (8) names, with only 4 fitting on her official documents, cites the Kabaka(King) of Buganda for his many names too.
Normally, it is “hard” for ladies to share their age, but she is proud to be forty-one (41) years old and a mother.
The Business Development and Partnership Lead at Outbox Hub, has learned over time that parenthood is a lifetime responsibility one is blessed with.
Nordreen enjoys the company of positive people and believes in everything to do with love, for God tells us that He is LOVE!
“Surround yourself with love and love your enemies,” she preaches. However, if you want to stay in her good books, desist from lying, because she loathes lies and anything that is not straight.
In her words, confusion, anger, pain, and cheating, among all those other evils you know so well, all come from the devil and we should never quench the devil’s desires for such acts.
“Given an opportunity, my legacy is to make a difference in everyone’s life, and share my blessings and insights to life,” she says.
The always jolly Nordreen has been blessed to meet various powerful women in life, one of them being the famous Yvonne Chaka Chaka, a South African Musician.
“I learned that despite her fame, she always had time for anyone and everyone. She would never forget a name, and genuinely embraces and welcomes people.”
“Lately, humans have turned life into a circus where we barely know each other. We are no longer a family, strong families build strong communities, strong communities build a Strong Nation,” says Nordreen, who prays that we all pick a ‘forest’ from Yvonne Chaka Chaka’s persona.
For the greatest lesson in life, Nordreen has learned that there is a reason for everything, and much as many might not understand, God had a plan for us all before we were even born, and we should keep trusting in Him.
