Dear Akure....

Dear Akure,
Thank You so much for an inspiring, joy-filled weekend....Thank you for helping me dream again...Thanks for the reminder that hope exists and that there are 'hearts' dreaming big and doing big things.....

Thanks for being a tool in Gods hands...and may He keep giving you wisdom to bring joy to people like me.

Love You! :)
......................................................................................

Was invited to speak at a TedX Event in Akure...So grateful to God for the opportunity...and it's official, I need a Crash Course on Public Speaking (Was so scared. Being honest!!!...Praying I did a good job..hahahahahaha)....If you are a public speaker, please I need your help with this ASAP..LOL...

The beautiful thing about my visit to Akure was not just the talk, but the people I met..so many intelligent people...I enjoyed every conversation and I got to explore Idanre hills as well...Wow!!!!

Super grateful for an awesome weekend....

Honestly, I don't know why I was invited to Akure, but I'm grateful for the experience (It was scary, at first......but i'm glad I did it......Humbled!!!!!)...Keep doing what you are doin', and with God by your side, it will turn out great...
