What is your biggest fear?
My biggest fear is failure. I don’t want to fail as a mother, neither do I want to fail as a woman.
2.  In your darkest moments, what do you do?
In my darkest moments, I cry. I lock myself up and cry bitterly, afterwards I pray and I hope.
3.  What is that one thing you would like to change about yourself?
I would like to be more confident of myself. I would like to worry less and focus more. Focus on my business, on my child and on my career.
4.  Where do you see yourself five years from now?
Five years from now, I see myself happily married with one or more kids, I see myself a successful business woman having at least 3 outlets in the metropolis of Lagos and 2 more outside Lagos.
I see myself as an Msc. Graduate, I see myself as a successful and supportive wife and mother.
5.  What keeps you going?
 Hope and my son – hope keeps me going. Hope fails not.
Many times, I get overwhelmed and weighed down, attimes I take a break and rest but I dare not quit.
I lost my parents at a time I needed them most, which has robbed me of many opportunities and support in life. Being an orphan has been a very great obstacle to my life. Now, I’m a mother, I have a son whom we lost his Dad 5 years ago. I want to be there for my son at every phase of his life, I don’t want him to suffer the same fate as me. So, my son keeps me going. I have to be there for him, I must not make him weep and wish his parents were alive. I have to be strong, for him.
6.   What is your stand on feminism? Do you consider yourself a feminist?
Well, feminism in the sense of it, isn’t anti-men. Feminism is a voice to the voiceless. It has given hope and support to many people. Feminism is not bad. Yes, I consider myself a feminist.
7.  What keeps you up at night?
When I wish to accomplish a thing and it seems unachievable, it keeps me up at night. When things aren’t looking positive for me, I lose my sleep.
