 A lot has happened in the past few months and as always, I’ve learnt a few new things along the way.

In September 2020, I was selected to participate in a short-term research program sponsored by a group of organisations in Germany.. (Listed below)

At the time I was selected, I was held up in Nigeria due to Covid and unable to travel down. But that didn’t stop me.

Remember my philosophy?

“BuildRegardless of any challenge”

Well, I did.

I kicked off my work in October 2020, working remotely with my team back in Benin. With their help, I was able to conduct surveys and interviews to allow me to acquire the data samples I needed to work with.

In February 2021 I sent in my final reports and was later selected (in April 2021), out of over 50 participants from 6 different countries who participated, to represent Benin 🇧🇯 and present my project to the entire team in Germany.

Apart from being the only Nigerian and non-Beninese on my team (By the way, my project work was focused on Benin  🇧🇯), I was the only candidate from Benin who presented to the board.

There are two things I want to share with you from this experience;

1 - Keep building even when no one is watching.

You might think no one sees you, but people are watching.

They might not say anything to you, but they are quietly observing and following your work. The day will come when they will reach out to you - either directly or by recommending you for an even greater opportunity.

So, don’t stop what you are doing.

  • If you need to re-strategise or pivot, do it.
  • If you need a mentor to help you improve, get one.
  • If you need to rebrand and reposition yourself, begin now
  • If you need to upgrade your skillset, start learning

2 - Don’t ever try to blend in because you loose yourself when you do.

That thing that makes you different might also be the thing that helps you standout from the crowd.

Focus on what makes you unique, build on it and use it to your advantage.


We all have that desire for more, to succeed, and become that person you so desire to be. But, it's no longer enough to just dream. 

You need to go beyond 'wishful thinking', make a decision to follow through and Take Action.

You've got to say to yourself, "Regardless of the challenges that will come my way, I will BuildRegardless of it"

I’ll be back soon with more stories … until then, stay safe.
