When I was 18, I was on the train from Grays to Upminster and I had a “LIGHT BULB” moment. I called my mum (who unfortunately passed away three years ago), with so much excitement and I said, "I think I know what I want to do, I think I want to become a motivational speaker.” She said:"Ifeoluwa ...
