You can read the previous post in this series here and the reason behind it here

I have known this woman all my life, like literally, ever since I became aware of myself as an individual. Growing up, she was the one I looked up to.

Who is she, you ask? Well, her name is Bukola Omole (nee Arowosafe), my big sister. And why did I want to be like her? Because in my eyes, she was perfect. She was the perfect role model a teenage girl going through puberty and clueless as ever, could ask for. (more…)

So without further ado, let us begin…

I was fresh out of service and I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do next. Everybody who knew me knew I had always nursed this idea about a career in the media industry. (more…)
