Step Out And Do It Afraid! Tomi Salami Shares Her Success Story With The Aurora Foundation


We never know what we are capable of doing until we get rid of the things holding us back. For fear of failure and what people would say, former miss Tourism, Tomi Salami once held back at her life’s desire.

The Aurora Foundation, an NGO aiming to improve the quality of life in Africa through education, welfare, empowerment and health, wouldn’t have seen the light of the day if Tomi had not decided to step out of her fears.

Four years later, she shares her success story!

“Do it afraid! Do it anyway!” Tomi says to people who want to make something out of their life but are scared.

She wrote,

I used to live my life paralyzed by the fear of what people would say and the fear of failure but gradually, I was able to get past those feelings to the point of: “Do it afraid! Do it anyway!” I am still a work in progress but I sure am better than before…

I started my foundation @theaurorafoundation on my birthday, 15th of March, 2013 with a fearful feeling in my tummy…so many doubts: “You’re in Nigeria – what if you don’t get any support?” “What if your projects don’t make any impact?”

Well, I’m here to tell you that with God’s help and without ANY International Grant/Support, we have so far successfully reached out to over 17, 000 Nigerian children in various States via our Kits For Kids Africa & Dental Drive initiatives – now how’s that for IMPACT???

I hope I am able to inspire someone today to Step Out and Do It Afraid! I still have my moments of trepidation and yes, we face challenges but with God, all things work together for good. Thanks to everyone who has supported this noble cause thus far #LetsDoMore ❤ We are Blessed to be a Blessing! @tomi_pearl@theaurorafoundation
