So we are both making history together 💃 💃 💃 💃 💃 💃 First thing I will love to tell the house is that "Impossibility is Nothing" If you can think it, you can imagine it. If you can imagine it, you can see. If you can see it, you can achieve it. #Period Don't let your background put your back on the ground. I was born in the village Ovia south west, Benin, Edo State I spent three years here before I was brought to Ibadan and since then I have been in Ibadan. Spent over 25years in Ibadan now, still counting. 😎😎😎 I was brought up my aunty, then my uncle later adopted My younger sister and I in the year 1996. Since then, they have been the best parents to me. I was born with a limitation called "Dyslexia" Who knows the meaning of "Dy slexia" in the house A learning disability in which a person finds it difficult to read and write. Because of the limitation I attended five different primary schools But eventually finished and went to Government College Ibadan, Apata. For my secondary school I started living above my limitations when I gave my life to Christ on the 31st December 1996 In my JSS2, Peak Milk came to my secondary school and gave award to the best students in each Junior Class. They came when we were in the third term. And announced my name as the best student in JSS2 both in first term and second term. The whole school couldn't believe it. I went home with lots of prizes and gifts that day. A student who couldn't read, write and speak as a child became the best student. In my JSS 3, God called me and spoke with me one faithful day at Midnight while I was sleeping. Just like He did with Samuel in the Old Testament That was how I started my close relationship with God After that award by Peak Milk The school started their prize giving day [m So for JSS2 I was the overall best student In JSS 3 I was Second Overall best student Then from SS One to SS Three, I was the overall best student 🙈🙈🙈 In my SS 3 I was the Deputy Head of School, JETS Club President, L & D Society Club Coordinator and the fellowship leader The fellowship is called Youth Foundation Secondary School Fellowship, where we had over 200members from different secondary schools in Ibadan Then became the best graduating student in my set. 2005 Set Something amazing happened that year too in school Before we wrote our WAEC that year, the last time someone had A1 in Chemistry was about four years ago before year 2005 So when we wrote ours, I had A1 in Chemistry along with my best friend To cut my long story short, after secondary school, my best friend and I Did something I told him I want to become an Engineer And he said he wants to become a Medical Doctor Today my best friend is a Medical Doctor I am an Industrial Engineer by profession It took me four years after secondary school for gain admission into University of Ibadan to study Engineering. Even though I had admission from other institutions like UNAAB and Covenant University, but didn't go because I wasnt given what I wanted Determination and focus In my University days in UI, I wasn't satisfied with the educational system. So I spent most of my time learning from books, online, seminars, workshops, conferences and trainings Then helped other students to develop Because I am naturally passionate about Human and community development, change and impact In my 300Level I founded the E-NNOVATORS it started as a group We came together to solve the challenge of high rate of academic failure in faculty of technology 200Level courses Because we were victims of the failure and we didn't want the students coming behind us to experience such, so we started a tutorial class for 200level students while we were in 300level It was a huge success The failure rate dropped and most students passed Before then I was the class governor for my class from 100level to 400level I lead my class to become the best class in my set in our faculty. We won the award twice, 100level and 300level To cut my long story short I personally decided to drop my academic zeal for what I was passionate about So I spent more time with my passion rather than academics...🙈🙈🙈🙈 Don't be like me in that area i In my final year I applied to make the ENNOVATORS a student organization in UI and they approved our application That was how the group became a student organization in UI In ENNOVATORS We educate, equip, and empower students with skills of employability, entrepreneurship and leadership By the time I was graduating from UI, I had over 10 awards for my personality and leadership achievements Went for NYSC in 2015 And by the time I finished my service last year, I was given an award by NYSC Oyo State for my leadership and impacts made in the state as a corps member After my NYSC I took a decision not to depend on my parents. I come from a home where my father can afford to give me #200k for my monthly allowance from home I never lacked anything since I was adopted by my new parents My father works in an oil and gas company called "Chevron" After my NYSC Last year April I came across this quote A man that rides his father's car should not sit in the council of men that own their bicycles Hustle for your money Don't depend on your parent wealth I had a car I was driving since my first year in school. It was given to me by my parents but I noticed something. Most of our parents control our lives because we depend on them for everything Immediately I came across that quote, I decided to take responsibility for my life and be independent I stopped collecting allowance from home I stopped driving the car, I said I want to ride a car I bought for myself with my money I turned my passion into a business enterprise Today I'm into fish business I co-founded a start up called Homespike.com I'm a social entrepreneur , Photojournalist and so on All I shared today is just 45% of my story But another time we will hear more I hope I have been a blessing to someone here today This is my first time sharing my Story on whatsapp...
