My name is Olufunmilayo Omolabake Ajibade (nee Balogun) I was born into a Muslim background on the 16th June 1986. My parents broke up when I was just 2 years old. That separation led me to start living with my uncle and his wife, which is my paternal uncle.
The split-up had me putting up with four different families while growing up and that gave me a lot of sad experiences, such that nearly ruined my life. I was maltreated and raised with so much hatred and bitterness by the ones I called my family. At the age of thirteen years old I was sexually molested by my own uncle. It was a painful experience that I’m unable to forget. I had no one to care for me or my needs. All I wore throughout my teen days are worn out and torn clothes passed unto me by my cousins.
I was confident. Fearless. Beautiful. Strong. Social. I was, I was a size 6 UK wearing lady. Life was amazing and colorful and nothing could, possibly, go wrong, or so I thought. To further convince me of this was the tall, dark and handsome gentleman whose attention I caught. No surprise when he put a ring on it.
I am a Christian and naturally, in the past decade, I have attended hundreds of conferences. With each passing year, I strive to objectively review their effect on my life and if they have brought about the change that drew me to those meetings in the first place. Many us need to carry out this mental review dispassionately from time to time.
It dawned on me in May, 2016 it was that strike season again; a time students always dread, a time when some students tend to lose focus, gain weight, get pregnant, start something new, take up new skills, make new friends and visit new places. Yes, it was about that time that my life changed for the better. It was during this time that I took a major decision in my life.I started my Instagram platform during the OAU strike in 2016.
