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

Ah! Picking one is difficult o! (laughs) and that is mostly because of my kind of job. As a content developer, I depend heavily on a lot of productivity app for different purposes but for the sake of this question, let me try to pick one (even though I feel like I’m betraying the rest).

My most-used productivity app would be Grammarly. Writing flawlessly requires proofreading. With Grammarly, I’m able to save time by fishing out grammatical errors on the go and develop a perfect piece of content.

Q. How do you practice self-care in your life? 

I’m a huge fan of fitness. I work out and do yoga as often as I can. I love to reward myself after completing a difficult task or hitting a milestone. As someone that sees music as a form of therapy, I listen to alternative music to relax after a long day. I love food, so once in a while, I try out new foods, satisfy my cravings and make sure that I unplug from social media once in a while.

Q. What is one pet peeve of yours? 

Eating loud or eating with one’s mouth open in public. It’s quite irritating, to say the least. I don’t think there’s an excuse for that. Maybe mouth covers should be invented…lol

Q. What is one thing you love about yourself?

One thing. Hmmmm. A lot of things are already clamouring for the medal in my head (laughs). I love my mind. I love how creative and productive it is. Sometimes, I wonder how it switches from being too playful to being extremely serious (laughs). My mind is my best friend.

Q. What is one thing that makes you laugh hard? 

Any Ryanhd Lomabard video on Tiktok. I just can’t help it.

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

Most people don’t know that I’m scared of Lizards…lol

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

Women in Tech. I would love to see a lot more women in Tech. This is one I would love to support.

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

I try as much as I can to be supportive of what they do and celebrate them at all times.

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

I’ll recommend TAKE THE RISKS by Ben Carson. It’s not just a good read. It is insightful and great for decision making.

Q. What is one of your favorite mantras or quotes?

“Never compete with someone you’re supposed to learn from.” – Philip Olubakin

Bonus Question:

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

    I am going to go ahead and save this post for my sis for a coming up research project for school. This is a nice-looking site by the way. Where did you acquire the template for this website?
