How does your weekend start?
My weekend starts on Friday after work. I hang out with friends and see a movie if necessary. Most times I am always on the internet making business deals.
Do you go to club?
I rarely go to the club, but if I must, it has to be with my boyfriend. I love to dance and have fun.
I try to make my own decisions on my own even when I am faced with some challenging decisions. The idea that everyone is doing it can influence me as a person, so I just avoid thinking about it. I try to be comfortable with my choices.
I start my day with an early morning exercise to keep me in shape and after that I do my chores. I prefer to be indoors on Saturdays, watching programmes on TV or playing video games. I also connect and do business via the internet.
I love watching football matches and I watch a lot of Chelsea matches. I also love drumming, dancing, listening to music, surfing the internet and meeting people.
I play a lot of soccer each time my brothers and friends are around. I also play handball and basketball. I won a medal in elementary school in basketball.
I wash the dishes, clean the house and do the laundry. I also get to cut and clear the garden.
I listen to hip-hop and rhythm and blues. It affects my mind, body and soul positively. It also reduces stress, unlocks pain and makes me feel fresh. My favourites are Usher, Ciara, Beyoncé, Chris Brown, Justin Beiber and Nicki Minaj.
Every great achiever who has gotten to the top not by tricks is worthy of emulation. I like Oprah Winfrey for her role in helping humanity and support for little children and Martin Luther, who fought for the freedom of black people. I also admire Nelson Mandela, a strong freedom fighter. My parents stand as perfect models for playing a good role in my life and making me what I am today.
I have been able to bag a B.Tech degree in Agricultural Economics and Extension. I am also a member of the Institute of Strategic Management and I have a certificate of participation in the West African Football Union Games. I have won medals in some handball competitions. These are achievements for me and I also hope to achieve a lot in fashion designing. I want to be the best among the best.
What do you wish you could do more of on weekends?
I think the weekends should be extended. If my weekend is extended, I will use that opportunity to connect with more people and draw designs. I will also use the time to visit more friends and hang out in a beautiful location.
