I see you finally struck a balance between your desire to lazy around all day vs. Kick butt in corporate. You’re actually a pro at working smart now #MadamResults 👏🏽

Plus, how you’re able to put in a good fight and influence business decisions that bring about real change no matter how unpopular it is? Girl ✋🏽 You work has lips that speak.

Oh and you’re really morphing into a global professional. Thank God you settled that desire within yourself 10 years ago.

Thank you for your unflinching commitment to building Africa through human development. Those seeds will bloom eventually. 

I’m proud of you girl! 😍❤️

Honestly I’d be lying if I said I had specifics on where I’ll be by 30 but they always say you figure out life by then and you ultimately start living. So all things being Equal “I’d finally be established in my career path & I’ll be married to the one I love” 

To My 30 year Old Self-

It’s your time now to Take on the World & Set New Goals but remember the key is to always be happy.

I hope you’re well, still living, loving and just being your happy energetic self. 

I hope your skin is popping💅🏼 & your edges are still glorifying the Lord.

I hope you finally got an opportunity to model for that baddest photographer as your slim fit body cannot be a waste 😂

I know!!! It’s been an interesting ride so far. My heart is full knowing that your hard work, grit, faith and consistency finally paid off. 

I hope you were able to cop that job in the World Bank. I also hope you contributed your quota to the growth of Nigeria.

Hmmm…Well done on the NGO that’s helping African kids get good education in a bid to alleviate poverty in Nigeria and Africa as a whole. 

I want you to know that you were created to be what eyes have not seen or ears heard.  Don’t get comfortable in any situation you find yourself. Keep aiming for the stars because new dreams will be birthed and trust me, they are as valid as the former ones. 

Well done👍🏻


Your 20 something year old self.

Hello Dr. Bukola, I hope your family is doing fine ? And how’s that amazing man you are married to ? I’m super proud of you and how much you have achieved. I know it hasn’t been easy but God has been faithful.
