2. One accessory you can’t leave home without?
3. Is Law your dream course of study? If not, what prompted you to study Law?
Law was never my dream course. My dad encouraged me to study law and he insisted that all his children must study a professional course.
4. You’re the Chamber Governor for Acquitters Chamber, Bowen University and also the Head of Academic Committee, Diverse Law Organisation. How have you been able to handle both tasking roles effectively? And what influence did occupying both positions have on you as a Law student?
First of all I don’t bite more than I can chew. I don’t take up a responsibility when I know that I wouldn’t be able to deliver appropriately and give it my best.
However, God has been the major helping factor.
Then I’ve also built multitasking skills. Overtime by being responsible for different things both at home and in school. I’ve also learnt the importance of setting priorities and being disciplined and these has helped alot in striking a balance.
5. What is the inspiration behind your beauty outfit, Glime’s Beauty? And which services does Glime’s Beauty offer to the general public?
Well, Glime’s Beauty is a brand that acknowledges the greatness inside every woman.
The word GLIME itself is an acronym that stands for *Greatness Lives Inside ME*
Women love to look beautiful and that’s why we offer services that would reflect the true beauty of every individual and alter every imperfection of the face.
Also, it’s our aim that every woman who represents or patronises our brand would not just look beautiful and elegant but also carry the consciousness that they’re born great and they have the responsibility of making Greatness break forth from inside them in all spheres of their life.
We also deal in:
-Personal makeover. Services for events and outings.
-Skin care and beauty treatments.
What is the significance of the EndSars Campaign to you as a Nigerian Youth
The significance of the campaign to me as a young Nigerian youth is that People, old or young have a right to life and such right shouldn’t be taken away from them in any unlawful manner. Also, the Youths have a voice in influencing Government’s decisions, regulations and policies.
However, it’s very unfortunate that the Government doesn’t lend an ear to our voices and that proves the fact that alot of things are wrong about today’s government.
7. What has been your greatest challenge so far as a beauty preneur and what other challenges do you feel other young Nigerians in your niche encounter as well?
Well…the greatest challenge for me is inadequate finance and lack of parental support.
Another challenge is academic demands.Its important to be consistent in business and it’s also necessary to maintain good grades. This takes a lot of extra efforts to scale through.
8. What are the possible solutions to the challenges raised in question seven?
1. Acknowledge who you are and who God has purposed you to be.
2. Know that you have your life to live and you owe yourself a lot of hard-work to secure a great future.
3. Take savings and investments seriously, it’s helps alot in future endeavours.
4. Trust God with all your heart and always remember that he has your back.
5. Recognise and appreciate the people who support your dreams and goals and also leverage on them till your dreams come true. Then, if the people who don’t support you later acknowledge their wrong then so be it and if they don’t, keep pushing until you make it. There’s no Limit to greatness; just spread your wings and fly.
9. Your favourite quote?
“You’re too amazing to be anyone else; just be you.”
10. If you were the President of Nigeria for a day, what would you change?
If I’m to be the President of Nigeria for a day, I’ll change the system of Electricity supply. I know how important that is to my fellow Nigerians.

Yes, my upbringing shaped my core values which are Greatness, Decency, Integrity and Self-respect.
14) If you were given the opportunity to address a group of girls five years younger than you, what will be your advice to them?
Try to develop a high self esteem right from now and it’s not too early to start having dreams and aspirations and to start pursuing them; because any opportunity that doesn’t meet preparation will turn out to be a failure.
