Blogger Spotlight: 10 Questions with Oyinloye Deborah Oluwadamilola!

Welcome to the Blogger Spotlight: 10 Questions with Deborah Oluwadamilola Oyinloye!

Our blogger of the month is Deborah Oluwadamilola Oyinloye

Deborah Oluwadamilola Oyinloye is a young lady wanting to know why the world is the way it is. Yea, she’s that simple! This inquisitive mind makes her passionate about making other lives better through teaching, acting, and content writing. She is most especially concerned about the lives of the young ones (children and teenagers) in making them better people that would produce better families, and ultimately a better society.

In the academic world, she is a graduate of English Language and a postgraduate student of Mass Communication. Looking forward to bagging a doctoral degree as soon as possible, she loves challenges that push her to research and further learning. Other than English and Communications, you can engage her in intelligent conversations on matters that concern EduTech, website development (HTML, CSS3, WordPress), and even Human Resource Management.

Debby is a fluent speaker, budding presenter, and freelance writer; and being a book lover, makes her all the more interesting.

Location: Lagos, Nigeria. 

What is one productivity app, gadget, or tool you use consistently? 

Grammarly. My strength in writing as a hobby and side income gives me a greater sense of the importance of good speech, and Grammarly helps with that. 

How do you practice self-care in your life? 

Well, I eat good food as much as I should. Meanwhile, I’m not a sucker for routine, but there are times I just go off and leave everything (a good thing about being a freelancer).  

What is one pet peeve of yours? 

I dislike when people slack in their responsibility. I feel everyone should be active in whatsoever they do. 

What is one thing you love about yourself?

I love the fact that I can stand before anyone to talk; whether it’s the president or just a ‘common’ person.

What is one thing that makes you laugh hard? 

Well, I think that will be an ironic situation, which could be anything and anywhere. From the matters of the heart to that of the country, ironic situations will make me laugh hard.

What is one thing about you most people don’t know? 

People don’t know I care. Many don’t know maybe because I can’t just show how much I care; but honestly, I care a lot. 

What is one cause or initiative you believe in and support? 

I support every initiative aimed at making the young ones better — their academics, moral life, finances, and everything about their development. I believe in building teenagers to become better people that will produce a better society. 

What is one way you practice kindness to women in your life? 

I’ve recognized women as important people that need to be encouraged and motivated. Therefore, as best as I can, I talk to them, encouraging, motivating, and praying for them to become better women. I’m grateful for a platform that makes it possible to do this almost every week. 

What is one personal or professional development resource (book, podcast, course, video, song) you recommend? 

The Bible is one personal development resource I can recommend anytime, any day. If I could add another, it will be “Why You Act The Way You Do” by Tim LaHaye, and every other temperament book he has written. It had really helped me in my relationship with people. 

What is one of your favorite mantras or quotes?

When the going gets tough, it’s only the tough that gets going. 

Bonus Question:

Who is one woman in your network you’d like to see featured on the blog and blogger spotlight site?

 My mum, my personal hype woman.
