Q. What is one productivity app, gadget, or tool you use consistently?
WordSwag, I run an affirmations platform, I post every morning by 6am, so using WordSwag is beneficial for me as I use it to design every affirmation, I find millions of free images there, so it makes the work easier for me.
Q. How do you practice self-care in your life?
Hmmm, this goes a lot of ways actually. I’m a chop life kind of girl, anything stressful, I absolutely don’t like it, so my first go is having suya or kilishi with a cold bottle of orange juice. Other things I do to practice self-care is going to make my nails, I also love to treat myself to good facials, I take very good care of my skin. I do yoga too but I’ve not done that in a while, I should do that soon as it’s so relaxing and I get to do many fun poses that make people wonder how someone like me can pull that off. I also like to go see a movie by myself. Some people find it weird but I really enjoy it, I should do that soon.
Q. What is one pet peeve of yours?
Quite a number but the number one is bad time management, I absolutely hate when people come late, with no communication or lie about the time. Nigerians say it’s normal, but I don’t think that it is or should be, we should learn how to keep to time. It gets me in a bad mood, and It shows on my face when people come late. I’m patient, but not that patient. The honorary mention is people chewing loudly, my goodness! I cannot stand it, I would automatically get irritated, so for me not to explode, I kindly leave the place or start chewing something myself to distract myself.
Q. What is one thing you love about yourself?
I love absolutely everything but since you ask, I like the fact that people can confide in me and I listen and most of the time I have something comforting to say. So yeah, I’m proud of myself for being a good person lol.
Q. What is one thing that makes you laugh hard?
Other people laughing, lol. I automatically start laughing and sometimes it gets too much sef and I can sprawl on the floor.
Q. What is one thing about you most people don’t know?
I’m an open book, so I can’t think of anything, to be honest.
Q. What is one cause or initiative you believe in and support?
Children, anything children. I believe they should grow right and they should have a better future than we did. You know that saying “children are the leaders of tomorrow”, I strongly believe in it. So in my time, I go to orphanages, IDP camps to share stuff, I also donate to some foundations that help out with children. I do not like children suffering and I believe good people can come out of a child who is taken good care of.
Q. What is one way you practice kindness to women in your life?
I’m all for women’s support, I have the best girl-friends ever, so anything that requires me to celebrate a woman’s win, I’m all for it! I believe we are an alliance, we cannot be stopped if we all work together in love, I call us a GIRLIANCE!
