Spotlight Sessions with Odera Okoye

A new week brings about a new #SpotlightSessions. I hope you have been enjoying reading these biweekly segments and been inspired by each person's journey. 

#SpotlightSessions - shining the spotlight on everyday people with inspiring stories

This week, I interview Odera Okoye. I first came into contact with Odera after landing on Renowned - a digital platform created by Odera and his brother, Aka, which aims to explore the themes of God, faith, identity and culture through visual storytelling. From the aesthetics and vibe of the blog, I knew that the creative forces behind the site were people to watch out for. At that time, I was aware that Odera and I both attended the same University so I managed to spot him at a random African Caribbean Society event and went on to applaud him for the work he was doing towards Renowned. Since then, he has graduated from King's College London with a BA in English and is on the road to securing a bright future in the creative industry. This is a Spotlight interview you don't want to miss. So, here's the spotlight on Odera... 

21 Years, 21 Lessons

Today I turn 21! I feel like I am at an interesting point in life right now - fighting my way through the 'beginners-course-in-adulting', excited for what the future holds yet uncertain as to how I want to get there or where to even start. 

Despite all this, I am truly grateful for life and have faith that I will continue to walk in my purpose as the days, weeks, months and years go by.

Here's 21 things I've learnt in 21 years.

Spotlight Sessions with Adaora King

#SpotlightSessions - shining the spotlight on everyday people with inspiring stories

In this Spotlight Sessions, I interview one of my long time friends Adaora King. Adaora and I actually met back in primary school (Year One, to be precise 😄) and have kept in contact since the early days. Coincidentally, years down the line - we also ended up studying at the same University! 

I was particularly keen to interview Adaora because of her passion for travel, her dedication to learn about new cultures through language, food and music as well as her interest in building cultural intelligence skills. Here's the spotlight on Adaora King. Enjoy!
