When and where were you born?

I was born in the early 90's. October 16 precisely.
I was given birth to in Oju-irowo part of Isale-eko.

Regarding  your birth, is there any story attached to it?

Maybe from my name Ayodeji which I was made to understood that it was given to me by my Grandfather because I was given birth to on a day he won a particular contract.

Personally, I think that is just coincidental but there's no way I could have explained to my parents been a toodler.

I am from Lagos island(Isale-eko to be precise) , Lagos state.

I have family house at Iduganran street and I am from the Chieftaincy Family of Olorogun Atebo.

Tell us about your educational background?

I had my both primary and secondary education in Surulere.  I attended Shitta primary school and Government College Lagos, Eric-moore. Respectively.

I had my my tertiary education; first from the lagos state polytechnic where I studied Chemical Engineering Technology.  I proceeded to Ladoke Akintola University of technology, ogbomoso, oyo state.  For a in same course.

Tell us about your parent. And what does the word "Family" means to you?

 My parents are just like the normal Nigerian parents that always push their children to achieving their goals.

Family is just a part of you that you carry around but still have the other parts at home. They are the people who genuinely believe in you and will always support you.
So, family means alot to me and that's one of the reasons I  always set out time to chill with my family alone.

While growing up what was your most cherished moment?

That's certainly during my 10 years birthday. I stayed with my grandma in Surulere while my parents stayed in lagos island.  So, I had a suprised 10 years birthday party organised by my mum.

I still remember how suprise and how happy I was that day. I will take that as my most cherished moment while growing up.

Flashback to when you were 10 years old. What do you want to be when you grow up?

"An Engineer"My grandma made mention of the word "Engineer" to me, although I didn’t know what it was but I just wanted to be an Engineer because mami (as I usually called her) liked mentioning the name.

How was growing up in your family like?

It was mixed, so easy atimes then a little challenging period. Alhamdulilah, I am here today.

What has been your greatest challenge/achievment?

I won't say greatest, I would rather say a steady achievement which is making impacts with what I have be it knowledge or money.

I usually feel like an achiever each time I make someone understands something new.

What is your perspective about life?

I sometimes believe that our greater culture likes being overly negative and pessimistic. We love over-criticizing everything, having no hope for beautiful things and losing fond admiration for the silly, whimsical aspects of life. It's an attitude that I believe is corrupting our capability to strive for greatness in our lives.

Truth is, if you want to be great in this life, you have to model that greatness in your thinking.

You have to open your eyes up to the beauty in front of you and celebrate it. Only then will we be in the right mindset to enact change in our culture.

Tell us your goals,  how do you forsee the future?

my goal is to be a renown engineer with great impacts on humanity.

How i Forsee the future?
Let's everyone take care of their computer literacy skills and also the interpersonal relationship skills. That's the future I can see.

How has your career created value in your life ?

I had the privilege to be able to use some Engineering design software, which in turn have made me a very valuable young professional  and  have one time or the other  gave the chance in meeting/talking with  top C.E.Os and  senior professionals in the field around the world.

Who has influenced you most in your career?

My Dad.  He's my direct mentor.

What is your perspective about religion?

Religion is a universal human experience. All societies, past and present, have a set of shared beliefs and practices related to the supernatural. For millions of people around the world, religion is paramount to their individual and collective identity, and an important factor in how they live their lives.

So, I think Religion motivates people to do the right thing

All major religions are preoccupied with morality, and all encourage people to be more righteous. Whether it is through providing inspiration, the promise of rewards in the afterlife, or the threat of punishment, religion can be a powerful social force.
What is your definition of happiness

Happiness is a free occurrence which is not meant to be seized at any point in time.

Anything that makes you happy is worth during over and over again.

Do you have any phobia?

Reptiles. I have great phobia for anything that crawls.

What is your greatest fear?

Poverty. I am so scared of being poor .

If you have a chance to do one thing again, what will it be?

That will be revisiting our Nigeria independence claim.  I feel there are many things that were not properly addressed then; so, I wish to have a chance revisit again.

What advice would you give to someone who is struggling?

I remember our junior school biology that made us understood some concept of survival such as Symbiosis  mutualistic, commensalistic, or parasitic.

The point I was trying to make is that ; no matter, What we belong to a surviving class which means we will always survive.

My advice is that pains, adversities and all are temporary phase that will pass eventually. We shouldn't give up no matter what. I mean even a weed that's an unwanted plant still finds it way to grow; so, no excuse for giving up.
