How long have you been on this job?
I have been a communicator via different platforms such United Nations special agencies, TV and career shifts for three years. However, T.C.C came on board this year with a lot of transformational agendas and activities.

Highlights of your job…
A lot! It’s not just a job, it’s what I breathe, eat and live for. It is called PURPOSE. Combining my passions and interest to create service, satisfaction and growth to especially young people like myself is fulfilling.

Downsides of your job
Developing in what ever you do isn’t supposed to be all candy and sugary so there are no downsides on this job but challenges and hurdles and it’s not impossible to fall and still crossover! Wax stronger, soar higher and keep aiming beyond your imagination.

If you weren’t doing this, what will you be doing?
Steve Harris, my big buddy always says “It’s not what you don’t have that limits you, it’s what you have but don’t know how to use” So I am doing all I can at the moment and only trying to figure out the other potentials I have got.

On a scale of 1-10, how would you grade your skill set on this job?
7.0. I still be “pikin”, very young and won’t stop learning until I die, so I am ready for growth.

I’m living my career dream. Yes?No?
Yes “ofkess”!Abuja-20131105-00266

6; 30 – 7am. Awake, pray, skip and shower.

From 7am down to 5; 45m. I’m caught up with either school duties as I am also a part three student of political science or tied up with work engagements and trouble making sessions.

6:00pm – 7pm. Time for mass! I have 24 hours in a day so dedicating one hour or more for God everyday won’t hurt

7pm – 11;45pm. Home, Dinner, study, TV, social media and look for more trouble with my roommate till I sleep off!

    Forget what she does, God has done a lot for and on this lady, sculpture wise.
    I did not read the piece. Just drooled on her pics over and over again.
    Chisom, God is truly with you.

    Ok… (clears throat) but… I seem to miss a few answers like the highlight of the job/career/passion, all I got was a lot of words but no answers. And A lot is not an answer , I mean you can state a few, the same goes for the question about challenges. I can’t really say I understand what she does and since this is about getting a peek into roles or jobs one is otherwise not familiar with, I have to say more a little more meat with the answers would help.

    As a ‘communicator’ she has definitely lost my concentration.. the questions about upsides and downsides to her job, and what she would be doing if not being a ‘communicator’ should have been communicated simply, and not take us round the bend. For crying out loud, it isn’t brain surgery.

    Her reply to this question; “If you weren’t doing this, what will you be doing?” was OFF

      Too much motivational quotes have a way of messing with your flow.

    OK…..she lost me at her response on “What you do specifically?”…. I clicked on the article hoping to find what it means to be communicator but sadly am more confused

    This interview is beyond my comprehension. A lot of questions were not (correctly) answered . Whatever a communicator means, I do not know.

    For a ‘communicator’, this young lady did a pretty bad job of communicating to us on what exactly she does for a living.

    I guess communicator is just another word for ‘i use big words to form complicated sentences and string everything together to confuse you into being convinced that i communicated’

    At least that’s what I got out of it.
