1) THE BEST THING THAT HAPPENED TO YOU IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS?

I got accepted to be a part of the Multichoice Talent factory - to intensively learn the art and business of film. And I got the opportunity to move to one of the most creative and fastest cities - Lagos. To do what I’m most passionate about.

2) THE WORST THING THAT HAPPENED TO YOU IN THE PAST 12 MONTHS?

Feeling extremely overwhelmed with life that I became very slow in my process.

Due to the global pandemic, the programme I am a part of is being done virtually. Basically the whole disrupt - no one saw it coming and we were unprepared.

3) YOUR BIGGEST WISH FOR THE NEAR FUTURE?

To be the best that I can be at whatever that I’m currently working hard on. And for the world to be better, kind and beautiful after this pandemic. May peace reign.

4) YOUR BIGGEST WORRY FOR THE NEAR FUTURE?

We are in unprecedented times, filled with uncertainty. It’s hard not to worry. The human impact on the environment post Covid is what I sort of worry about. The earth needs to heal and rest but what will happen when we go back to normal, my worry is there will still be no serious call to action on climate change even though a few people are fighting hard for the cause.

5) A CONTEMPORARY WOMAN YOU CURRENTLY ADMIRE?

I admire many women honestly. First being my mother - for her strength and courage to keep holding on and staying positive. On my list is Solange Knowles and Ava Duvernay - both unique in their own ways, they are resilient with their art - which is a weapon for them to strive for social change / justice and to empower people. They definitely inspire me.

6) A ONE-SENTENCE MESSAGE TO OTHER WOMEN?

Speak up and be heard. And most importantly stay true to yourself.
