What motivates you to work hard?
The shared goal to do something meaningful, build something important, being able to contribute my quota in what you believe the future should be.
What do you love most about your team?
There is this thing that we all take pride in our team, we bootstrapped our way to the top. We have been able to evolve through the years. We have had our fights, we’ve quarreled, we’ve also had fun times together, I just like the fact that over the years, we share this common drive to want to do great stuff and to want to be great people, I just like our bond, I like our spirit to work and our attitude to work also.
What’s your advice to young people?
Find a way to know what your thing is. Everyone has what they are unique at. There are things you do and you feel excited about, it may not be specific or it may not be very defined, so my advice would just be for young people to find whatever it is that makes you feel aligned with purpose, and just keep on pushing and keep aiming to be the best.
What opportunities have you identified globally?
At the moment, we have access to the internet, to connect with people globally. There are people who have done or are doing what you want to do, which to an extent has given an opportunity for young people in this generation with the pool of resources available to utilize. It then becomes a function of how best people are able to leverage these opportunities and connections.
A public figure but who inspires you?
We had very audacious goals when we started till this very moment. We were consistent and kept working hard toward attainment of our goals. So whatever it is that anybody finds themselves to do, if it’s worth doing at all then it’s worth doing well. If you are able to convince yourself that you should do something, then do it well.
