1. What is your biggest fear?
My biggest fear in life used to be FAILING, but I was able to crush that by making myself understand that, failing at anything doesn’t make it the end of life, instead, it is an opportunity for one to do better.
Currently, my biggest fear is that I might one day not be able to fend for myself due to any reason.
2. In your darkest moments, what do you do?
I guess that is why I am a UK 18 😂. I am an emotional eater. So, in my darkest moments I just let go and have comfort food. * Sorry to disappoint anyone that was expecting something deep.

Procrastination. This girl can procrastinate for Africa, from reading for exams to doing assignments, if it isn’t Last minute I am not getting it done. I am currently working on it by pushing myself to do things immediately. Like I made sure I replied this mail same day I got it. 😁😁

6. What is your stand on feminism? 
Feminism to me means equal right between genders. Political, social and economic equality and equity. the ideology that no gender is superior to the other.
My understanding of feminism is to oppress men like some individuals believe. Instead, it Is to give a voice to the voiceless. I believe everyone should embrace feminism.
Do you consider yourself a feminist?
I “stan” 100% 😁

WeTradeInAll keeps me up all night, I constantly think and research on how to grow my baby into the likes of Specssavers, Vint and York, Coastal.com etc.
