- Now an owner of houses and many investments, she said making the effort to become a resident in Canada paid off
A Nigerian woman, Dr Adeola Olubamiji, on Friday, May 21, celebrated her nine years anniversary since she relocated to Canada.
She revealed that she was living in Finland working as a cleaner with her master’s degree when she took the bold move to seek better opportunities in another country.
Adeola revealed that her zeal to break out of her relative comfort zone was borne out of the great determination to take a big risk. The woman stated that singular decision got her everything she has today.
The risk-taker later became a PhD holder in 3D printing, has a directorship position in a tech company, owns many houses and businesses abroad, among many others.
The woman was in 2020 recognised as one of the top 100 most powerful women in Canada. She disclosed that the country changed her life for good.
A part of her Twitter thread read:
“Thank you God & Canada!!! Thank you Adeola (me) for doing it all the time afraid and taking mad risks. We may come as STUDENTS, but we are determined to OWN THE LAND & THRIVE. So, don’t underestimate us, our zeal and our magic. Forever.”
