Hey guys, I HAVE A CONFESSION.

Can you guess?

I have been a very fearful person, yes, behind the scene.

I can and should be doing more but I have let fear stop me.

What are you exactly afraid of you would ask?

Honestly, I don’t even know, I am just afraid of everything.

I am afraid of speaking up, trying and failing, coming out of my comfort zone, sharing my accomplishments, and doing the things I know deep down I should be doing.

What an October!

This has been the most emotional month for me in my entire life as a young Nigerian girl living in Nigeria. I have gone from being super proud of my generation to shock to tears to pain, to fear and uncertainty, to amusement, and more shock, then hope. This country has a way of giving us something to talk about every day.

I have picked up a few lessons from the previous happenings in the country:
