Collections Agent 

I am from Nigeria, came to Canada as an international student. Worked hard to follow my passion of working with children and families hence the program I studied. I wanted to make a change in the life of our future leaders, I know I can’t change every child I met but even if it’s one that I can positively influence it’s worth the whole time spent in school. I was Child Care supervisor prior to working from home as a collections agent.

What advice would you give the 15-18 year old version of yourself?
You are strong, you are not different but you are special. Never let anyone bring you down; no one has the power to tear you down unless you hand them that power. Keep your head up high and work into your manifestation. If you fail in one area, figure out your why and don’t make that same mistake again. Pursue what you love and not what people love for you.
