I grew up in Lagos, Nigeria where i studied International Relations in college with the hope of becoming an ambassador, however that hope was quickly shattered when I soon realized such jobs were not posted in the job market and even if they were, I needed a wealth of experience.
I was confused, hopeless and didn't know where to go from there. Most of my classmates in college already had jobs either by working for their family business or started their own. I didn't have such luxury.
I went into a shell of self reflection in order to discover myself, my gifts my talents and who I was. Spending several moments alone just thinking revealed parts of my life I never considered. I soon realized I found joy and passion in helping people. I was fulfilled when others realized their goals. I helped a lot people and those moments brought joy to my heart. I was an advocate. I would motivate friends to believe in themselves and their ability to succeed. I would counsel and coach those around me and I witnessed many success stories from those I coached and mentored. All of a sudden, it clicked. This is what I am created to do. This is my passion. It all comes easy for me and that was when I began to pursue and embrace the life of an Inspirational Speaker, and Coach.
While working in various industries in a 9-5 job, I never lost sight of my passion even thou I didn't realize how to accomplish it. I began to read more, learn more and become more. I successfully worked multiple Jobs, started a successful consulting business and a foundation.
In 2012, I made a decision to relocate to the United States to further my education. I earned a Masters degree in Business Administration while working at the same time. I started a Mentorship program at Texas A&M Commerce and focused on helping freshmen students stay focused and get good grades. There I realized the passion was still in me regardless of a change in my environment.
I made a decision in 2019 to launch into the deep and begin my speaker and coaching career and here I am today.
I am glad to have you read about me and I hope to partner with you or your business in your journey of success.
To deliver more value to my clients, I love to continuously improve myself. Some of my credentials:
