1. Who was family for you growing up?

Dad, mum, my 3 siblings and extended family members.

2. Who is family for you now?

My husband, my 3 kids, my parents, my siblings, extended family members, and in-laws.

3. Where did you grow up?

I grew up in a small town in Edo state of Nigeria.

4. Where do you live now?

I live in Manchester, England

5. What did you want to be when you were older?

I wanted to be a medical doctor. Any Nigerian will laugh at this comment. Back home, there is this belief that only doctors, lawyers, engineers are successful. I would like to think that this notion have changed now (lol). As i grew older, i wanted to be a christian who sits in the board of directors of a top firm and also have a charity organisation to support young girls.

6. What do you do now?

I work in an insurance firm and i also work with my organisation where we mentor young girls (dreams do come through!)

7. What’s your earliest memory?

It probably would be when i was around the age of 3. I was sat on the floor under a tree outside my house, playing with my baby brother who was in his pushchair.

I can also remember being in nursery and flying down from a swing. That wasn’t fun lol.

8. What’s one of your most recent memories?

It will have to be the evening i wrote this. Watching my 3 years old son dance to baby shark. Watching him read his favourite book at the moment “never too little”. Reading a story written by my 7yrs old daughter and looking at my 8yrs old daughter who is almost as tall as myself and wondering when she grew up.

9. What do you consider your greatest achievement so far?

Being a mum and starting my organisation.

10. What is your biggest hope in this life?

To see my kids live wholeheartedly for Christ and my organisation impacting the lives of more girls.

Now this is the not so easy bit. If i am to tag people, i will end up tagging hundreds of you. I really would like to know my followers a bit more so please if you would like to take part, i would appreciate it a lot.

  1. Thank you for sharing Efua! I enjoyed reading your responses. We have similar desires in wanting to impact lives. I know I’ve mentioned to you that I desire to start and run a non-profit organization that is dedicated to empowering young girls & women of all ages.
