What would you describe as the greatest passion that has brought you this far in your career?

The greatest passion that has brought me this far is “the need to do and be more”. I am always in a joyous mood whenever I record any sale and would quickly appreciate my subscribers by posting and updating them on how people are keying into my products. As a woman, I believe that we can do and be more than society projects us to be. We can make a difference and also make the world a better place. I believe that when we do more than expected, we will give room for others irrespective of their race, colour or gender to also grow and achieve success.

This year’s theme for International Women’s Day 2024 is Count Her In: Invest in Women. Accelerate Progress, how do you think this can be achieved by women in society?

The theme for this year is an interesting one I would say. This year’s theme is laying more emphasis on the importance of investing in women’s education, health, economic empowerment, leadership, and innovation, as well as ensuring their full participation in society.
To achieve this for women in society, we need to; Educate: Educate women on ways not just to improve our individual lives but the lives of our families and community. To achieve this, we can enroll women in formal and informal courses, and create a platform that connects and teaches women on these courses. Empowerment: Being empowered gives women the opportunity to make their choices and take actions that affect their lives, boost their self-esteem, and exercise their rights and freedom.

As a career woman, how have you been able to manage your home and office as well as other social responsibilities and still be able to maintain a successful career?

I have been able to manage my home and office through proper planning and time management. I ensure I delegate and supervise to ensure things are done the way it should be.

What advice do you have for the girl child and women as we celebrate IWD 2024?

Whoever aspires to be something significant in life needs to be focused, hardworking, consistent, and relentless in what you do. Wake up daily and move towards your goals, then lastly, never forget or leave out the God factor as it is also very important.
