She further said that people need to understand the journey of others in life, because only then would they become self-aware and get inspired to do better. “We find people who are exceptional in their fields, but we don’t know what is behind the scenes. We don’t know the stories. We just think they got there. ‘Against all odds’ is about telling their stories. How did they get there? What were the challenges they had?”

Speaking on the change she hopes her docuseries can bring about, Temi Badru said: "We hope that in years to come, people can say that after they watched the Against All Odds docuseries or attended the event, their lives were greatly impacted."
