Kemi Adetiba

Hello everyone.. you will not believe what happened to me.. I had finished typing and then was ready to post, all of a sudden my write up just vanished....
I mean it vanished into thin air...
Secondly I can't find the blogs I follow on my page. Where did they go to?
How frustrating can this be ehhen?
I am so pissed right now, but you know what? " this will not deter me from telling my story for today...

Kemi Adetiba, a young girl born of an Akwa Ibom mother and a Yoruba father.
Attended Atlantic hall secondary school in Lagos.
A law graduate from university OF Lagos, Unilag.

I am sure after a while she said to herself: "what's all this...I am dying inside not doing what I like..... throwing the stiff collar she flees LAW in search of her passion.

She is the only female Nigerian who shoots and directs music videos. She directed TY Bello's new song "The future". ( Please everyone should go on YouTube and listen to the song, I love it).

She has done so well for herself that she surprises even herself, I am sure. LOL. She is also DJ, can you beat that...

Now I am sure your are asking why am I getting all that excited.?
well I know if I had told my parents I wanted to be a DJ instead of a LAWYER they would have taken me for

I know we all have some passion hidden inside of us... or maybe locked away somewhere, with the keys missing... I think it is time to unlock IT and let it fly.. Fly with it and see what life has to offer....

My secret:

" the first day I got on a plane I knew I was born to fly planes. I didn't want to be an air hostesses, I wanted to be the pilot. The more I flew, the more fascinated I became, but I was timid. I wasn't bold enough to tell my parents MY DREAM. I wasn't bold enough to defend my passion. I wasn't ready to get uncomfortable to achieve my dream. And then secretly I was scared that they will reject me once they found out that I was partially deaf. So in other not to face this humiliation, I killed my dream. I killed it so fast that you will never have thought that I had a dream....

Coming across Kemi Adetiba, my dream is rekindled. I don't know if I can be bold enough to go 4 IT, but one thing I know is this: I will try my best to achieve it. Maybe now, maybe in 15 years, but I will do it, even if I fly once in my lifetime...

I have shared my secret, what's yours?
What passion, dream have you buried inside of you. Maybe cos of society or the fact that women can't be found in that field, or a disability etc.
What is it?
Please let me know and together I am sure we can fulfill our dreams.


P.S : " don't forget to grab a copy of Myne Whiteman's new book: " A LOVE rekindled".
