She answers our HOT questions below:
What’s one thing that happened to you that has made you stronger?
If you can say one thing to your 18 year old self, what will it be?
Go out more. Visit more places. Dance a lot.
If you don’t have to worry about making money, what would you do all day?
Sleep, travel, read books.
Would you like to be famous? In what way?
By fulfilling my purpose and impacting others positively.
What do you consider the most beautiful thing about your personality?
My giving heart, I guess.
Would you rather explore space or the deep sea? Why
Honestly, to get to experience both sides. But if i will choose one, it may be the deep sea. That would be fascinating.
What’s the one compliment that people always seem to give you?
That my smile is beautiful.
Do you believe in miracles? Have you ever experienced one? Please share
Yes I do. Too many friends certified infertile, getting pregnant and carrying their pregnancies to full term or almost full term still humbles me. No medical explanations as to how it happened.
Is there something that you’ve dreamt of doing for a long time? Why haven’t you done it?
Sky diving. I haven’t gone to where I can be admitted yet to do it. Soon, very soon.
What would make you leave someone you love?
Incompatibility and even love itself…
When was the last time you complimented a complete stranger? What did you say?
Almost every day. Most likely their outfit or something they had on, perfume inclusive.
Who is the strongest woman that you personally know? And why?
Mary, Jesus’ mother. How do you get pregnant, see an angel, remain calm and birth the saviour of the world?
What is the most annoying thing you have heard people say about women in Nigeria?
May be not most annoying, but clearly ridiculous. I heard recently that a friend (lady) had to bury her mother, who passed on over thirty years ago, to enable her bury her dad, that recently passed because she’s female… Culture still so wrong…
What is the one important thing about being a woman that you would want your daughter to know?
There’s a lot, let’s start with ‘know who you are.’
If you have the power to fix one thing in Nigeria, what will it be and WHY?
Party politics. If we can get it right there, almost half our problems are over.
If you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30 year old, which would you choose?
Nah… it’s a part of the process. Let me age beautifully please.
Would you be willing to have horrible nightmares for a year if you would be rewarded with extraordinary wealth for a life time? Why or Why not?
No. I love my sleep. Sound sleep is my heritage
If you could wake up tomorrow having gained one special quality or ability, what would it be?
Invisibility, just for the fun of it.
If a crystal ball could tell you the truth about yourself, your life, the future or anything else, what would you want to know? Why or why not?
Nothing. It’s kind of frustrating. But, this God’s style of revealing the future per time, isn’t bad after all.
If you had the opportunity to learn exactly what every person in your life really thinks about you, would you take it? Why or why not?
Oh sure. Feedback – negative and positive *phew*
If someone paid you a million dollars to wear the same exact outfit every day for the rest of your life, would you do it?
It clearly means I wouldn’t smell, why not?
If you could have a conversation with any type of animal in the world, which would you choose? What would you say?
Maybe dogs, man’s ‘best friend’.
