Am the first child of my family and I live with a single parent and that’s my mom, she have been my father, mother, best friend and a support system she will do anything to make us come out the best in anything we decide to do.
January 2019, I applied for a pre-degree course to study Mass Communication in University of Ilorin, but at the end of the day l discovered l wanted to act because l could sing, dance and fake my actions or pretend so l decided to change my course to Theatre Art in the same university. Gaining admission has been so challenging for me in the past few month now because at a point money was a challenge but God sent people to further my education and l will never give up until it’s over, I just thank God that l have a supportive mother and sisters with good friends and my other god loving mothers.
I’m a Christian and a worker (choir)in my church RCCG @ Dunamis sanctuary Surulere, l love to serve God, I discovered that I’m nothing without him l can’t go through this life difficulties without him. He alone has been my help since the moment l was born.
