Honestly, I feel brand new! The feeling when you just completed a phase, then you are on to another phase, 30 is way different from 20 or 10, I feel really brand new, a lot of things have happened to me in the last couple of years. It’s my year of rebirth and reflection. I feel like this is it.

Would you call yourself a Redefined Woman?
Yes! I would say I’m a redefied woman, I have not totally found myself but I have a great deal found myself. When you are 10, 20, a lot of people don’t know themselves. But then, I realized as at that stage of my life a lot of things had happened, I am extremely caring and that allows people get to me easily, people hurt me easily and I don’t care about it. I learned that one should learn how to draw the line and create boundaries when dealing with people
I know I have found myself, obviously not completely but to a large extent I have, as we grow older, we keep finding out that there is more to find out about ourselves but I can categorically say that I know myself, and the woman I am becoming.
What is your most embarrassing moment?
I am someone who likes to behave herself, I don’t overdo, so I don’t think I have any embarrassing moment.
What would you tell a lady in her 20’s?
Be creative, be beautiful and be yourself.
Remain focus, there are a whole lot of distractions out there, focus cannot be overemphasized. It’s a tough world out there, you need your focus on track. Nothing is rosy, out there. Be hardworking and pray always. Don’t get to much involved with friends, be selective of who you spend your time with, differentiate between a friend and an acquaintance. I have cared for the wrong people in the past and it has taught one a lesson to be careful.
Lastly, never give up on yourself, don’t ever stop, you can move slow or crawl but don’t ever give up. There’s time for everybody to shine, be hardworking and prayerful. Be careful who you open up to.
