Here’s what she wrote about herself:
The person that I am
The kind of a person that I am is that am an enthusiastic and keen person. Am a person who loves laughing and helping. Am self-assertive, always curious, am just hungry for understanding, knowledge and at last wisdom! Am also a determined and passionate individual. Hardworking, dedication, commitment and focus describe the person that I am. In all that I do, I ensure it comes out effectively, as I put my effort in access, as well as assuring that at the end of the day my tasks are productive as I do them with love and enjoyment! Dreaming is one of the believes I hold in heart, I have a positive vision and mission in life, that is to achieve my goals and be successful as I am working towards my destination. Am a book worm, I love and enjoy reading a lot, a poet guru and outspoken person! That’s me at my best!
What I love doing most
The activities that I love and do most are writing especially poetry, reading different books including magazines and newspapers, watching television, listening to radio, communicating, debating, researching about different elements of life and people, reading about cars and soccer, that’s what out of my daily schedule I get do some of these activities. Am also a socialiser, I enjoy sharing ideas with others and listening to them whereby I get a chance to learn from them. I love motivating people, especially on my face book group page, HOUSE OF MOTIVATION! One of the excess activities that I carry as my duty is being a carrying hand, offering! I enjoy giving because I believe that a helping hand brings about positive change.
What makes me unique?
The person that I am is what makes me unique in my own way. My intellectuality, interests at heart, what I value most, my attitude, character and my personality bring out the spark of my uniqueness in me! I am distinguishable by what I live for and look forward to, my gratitude and not disappointing my life! I also display a different part as I hardly reason commonly; my intellectuality is too divergent and am a critical thinker! I carry and perform my duties my own way, that’s what keeps people always at an amused state with me. Am just surprising and creative. The love of working things my own way has always been a mark at heart. My uniqueness is bought about me being able to bit the odds! I have and rooted with self-love, self-respect, self-worth, self-motivation, self-positivity, self-acceptance, self-tolerance, self-discipline, self-assertiveness and selflessness! After all, I am my own person, young, smart and I believe in myself, that’s the magic and recipe of my uniqueness!
