What is your passion and What Connection has it with Your Feminity?
The entirety of what drives my interests has more to do with humanity. I love enablement; helping others to be the best they can while staying true to themselves. This is evident in my partnerships with NGOs and foundations like Skygirls Gh, to mention but a few, whose sole goal is to groom teenage girls to stay true to themselves and not do drugs.

There’s a lot to say especially being a woman existent in this part of the world. I’ll just sum it up in the trending hashtag started by Nigerian singer Simi and say #NobodyLikeWoman.
What Beliefs About Women Do you disagree With?
A lot but I’ll just limit it to the belief that women should feel the need to be self sufficient given how dependent society has tagged us to be. I think we’re (humans) all wired to be dependent on one another in one way or the other and that’s totally okay.
The saying “no one is an island” can not be overemphasized.

Having an open mind and in-depth understanding about life, I am able to relate with anybody irrespective of class/status; as opposed to popular culture of people getting to a certain point in life and starting to see those below them as inferior. “We’re all nothing but pencils in the hand of the creator” – Wale Adenuga.
