Happy International Women’s Day ❤

Yay 🥳💕

It’s International Women’s Day and the theme for this year is “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow”, recognizing the contribution of women and girls around the world.

“Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them”.

There’s something special about being a woman! A woman is an epitome of beauty, wisdom and care. We are nurturers, we are amazing, adorable, lovable, wonderful, powerful and phenomenal.

To all my Queens! Stand tall. Walk proud. Live in your truth. Be kind. Be yourself and don’t ever forget how wonderful you really are!

Happy International Women’s Day 💕

Celebrating Women Interviews

Believe in yourself that you can do it and work towards it – Obiajulu Olabisi Ugboh

Today, we are talking to a woman of many ranks. Obiajulu Olabisi Ugboh is a personal development and career coach, educationist, entrepreneur, actor, singer and also a co-host of popular breakfast show- “Your View” aired on TV Continental. She speaks about her upbringing, her life as a career coach, an OAP, her source of motivation and more.

  1. What was your dream job as a young girl?

I dreamt of being many things from a teacher to a singer to a dancer to a school owner to a business tycoon to an actress to a TV host, to a model to a beauty queen etc. I was blessed with many gifts so it was difficult to settle into one thing even as a child because I could do almost all. I’m happy that I am everything I dreamt I would be. I was able to explore them, and grow into the ones that align with my purpose on earth now.

  • 2. What was growing up like for you? 

Growing up was pretty interesting! It was a roller coaster of experiences that was bitter sweet but helped shape the woman I am today.

3. It is interesting that you have two beautiful names, Olabisi Obiajulu, which are peculiar to two different tribes in Nigeria. Would you like to tell us more?

My names are a combination of my parent’s tribes. My mum is Yoruba from Ado-Ekiti and my dad is from Asaba, delta state. So the Olabisi in my name isn’t borrowed 😂 it’s mine and my favourite because it’s blessed me immensely.

4. You are a woman of many ranks. You are a musician, an educator, a co-host on ‘Your View’, a life coach and the list continues. What inspired you to go into all these?

My passions drive me. I’m passionate about helping people become the best version of themselves as I constantly develop myself. I like people to think deep and not just accept the status quo. I also love to entertain people, make them laugh and relaxed. Life is hard enough😂

5. How will you describe your experience being a co-host on ‘Your View’?

The experience being a co-host on your view is shaping me every day to be better, a fast thinker and have the ability to proffer solutions on the spot! It’s my BIGGEST training ground and I’m grateful 🙏🏾

6. Do you have mentors and how have they influenced you?

I only have one physical mentor and he’s been of immense help to my growth and the expansion of my capacities. I selected him specially because he’s a man of many talents and excels in all like me. It was important that I picked a multi-talented mentor like myself who understood me and gave me a template of success that worked for him. Any other mentor who believed in jack of all trades master of none would have just made me feel bad about my talents and try to put me in a box. I have other mentors from afar too😁

7. How are you able to combine all you do with other life responsibilities?

I do a lot of planning and delegation. I work with partners from time to time and I handle and focus on one task at a time. Everything has its place and time for it.

8. What woman inspires you and why? 

Oprah Winfrey and Mo Abudu because they are go getters and I want to be that forceful in achieving my set goals and building my empire😁

9. What’s your typical day like?

Work, eat, nap, read and sleep except I have a project to work on that day

10. How do you motivate yourself and stay motivated?

I’ve tasted poverty and I’ve tasted riches and I never want to go back to poverty. Anytime I remember that, I’m running 😂😂😂😂. I also want to help people grow and reach their potentials.

11. What word of advice will you give the young girls, women and every other person out there?

Every young girl out there, believe in yourself that you can do it and work towards it day by day because it will come and you must be able to see the opportunity and grab it.

Nikkyosblog specially appreciates Obiajulu Olabisi Ugboh for her time and for sharing a lot with us in this session.

Chelsea Tayui

Passionate, selfless, considerate are not enough words to characterise this beautiful young lady who is born to be great. At an early age, she had a distinct attraction for pageantry. Like every little princess’ dream, she fantasised about winning pageants. And that’s exactly what she did… Miss Universe Ghana!

Raised by African parents, Chelsea was born in the U.S to migrants who lived most of their lives in Africa until they relocated. Despite being born in America, she grew up in a structured African home where career paths are one or the other – a doctor or lawyer. Uninspired by a daughter’s dream of pageantry, Chelsea’s mother stood by her and realised what a gem Chelsea was. Today, Chelsea’s family are her biggest support system.

Miss Universe Ghana, Chelsea Tayui, is using her crown to raise awareness. Chelsea is a 25-year-old communications executive with a host of humanitarian work experience with many NGOs, prior to her pageant competing days. Before joining the Miss Ghana Universe pageant, Chelsea worked with KJM Foundation. Part of the philanthropic work involved relieving penurious villages by providing bore holes, running water, and educational supplies so they can have a “normal life”. After winning the crown, she went on a special mission to raise awareness for Autism within the Ghanaian community to help eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness.

 As proactive as she is, Ms Tayui is working with different speech pathologists and advocating for early childhood interventions to help parents with autistic children. She strives to use her platform as Miss Universe Ghana rippling across nations, speaking for autistic individuals. Her devotion to philanthropy was cultivated with every project executed while working with NGOs. Chelsea is keen to replicate her passion by collaborating with NGOs and speech pathologists globally.

With a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from DePaul University in Chicago, USA, Chelsea Tayui is anticipating holding different seminars to continue the education leaning on her communication credentials.
