Part 1

In 2018, after studying Plant Physiology in university for 5years, I took a back step in my course to pursue a career as a writer. I dropped my certificate at home and I travelled down to Lagos. Even though I wasn’t certain but I’m certain, for certain that Art and Writing aren’t just a hobby, it’s a calling and my life’s work. It’s not only a medium, It’s a way for people to connect to the human experience.

I started writing at the age of 6 but at 7 will be close to the truth, I started choosing the essay option from the English examination.

In 2017, While in my final lap in the University, I published my first work “better tomorrow “ and that became a sort of dominant effect of opportunities in my life.



Be the best

You have the power to change everything, this is not only new year, it’s a new start

You have the power to create remarkable things because you are remarkable, to deliver, to surpass and to be the best in the world.

Don't squander your resources by spreading it too thin rather squander your resources by spreading abroad to acquire what is require to be the best.

The lesson is simple: If you've got as much as you've got, use it to be the best in the world. And if you haven't, do the needful.

You can’t beat the person who won’t give up.

Life will throw shit at you. It will beat you down so many times you hardly know how to get up anymore.

People you trust will hurt you, they will disappoint you and they will abandon you.

You will hurt and you will cry and you will ask yourself why.

Stop questioning it, it’s life, things won‘t get any easier unless you make them easier.

Stop expecting things

So wipe off those tears and realize that you are the only one in control of your happiness.

Don‘t let this world make you cold. Don’t stop caring. Be warm. Be kind. Even to those who hurt you.

Never ever, I repeat, never ever give up on yourself because if you can dream it, you can achieve it.

No one will beat the person that will never give up.
