My dear Oluwadamilola,

You are a phenomenal woman. Wow! I do not know many women aged 20 who have alreadry accomplished what you have.

You are a rising star my dear. My wish for you is to inspire as many young women in your circle as you can and to train them to follow into your footsteps.

Nigeria is blessed to have a young woman of your calibre because you are a national gem and role model to other young women in your community.

Story telling is a very powerful tool, and I am glad you are introducing it to others. I would be interested to know though what kind of social enterprise you are engaged in.

Keep us updated. All the best to you.

Thank you ma'am. God bless you.

Thank you so much Julie Desai for sharing my story and to you amazing women for your kind words.
I sincerely appreciate it.
