Q14. If you could teach one subject in school, what would it be?
A. I don't want to limit it to one; either English/Creative Writing, Psychology, or Sociology. I loved them all when I was back in high school and Uni. 

Q15. What's one piece of advice you'd give your 15 year old self?
A. "Speak up in class more, Ada; you have an opinion and it's worth sharing"


  1. Don't stop gesturing while speaking. It's more interesting than talking with statues.

    1. Thanks Pamela! You just made me feel 100 times better about it...It's a habit I haven't kicked yet and knowing it's not so "bad" is comforting :)

  2. Haha! Where do I even start. But hey thanks for laying out the blueprint of how to 'catch' Ada to your future 'toasters'. For example, I know that I can get you nice flats if I wanted to give you a surprise gift and if i really wanted to go all out, I could get you a piano or pay for piano lessons for you! Talk about blueprint! Just Kidding!

    Q2. No comment. Ladies often say they desire one thing then end up dating someone that's the complete opposite of what they say they want! True Word!

    Q3. Really. Hmmm. I have repented O! Saturdays used to be my own dancing days. I'd just turn it up from 9 - 11am digging it out and infuriating all my sisters.

    Q4. All ladies love Ludo. Do you like scrabble? Its great!

    Q5. My favorite holiday? Anyone that starts from Friday and ends on Monday so that I can have four whole days to rest. Ha!

    Q10. what exactly is the picture you see in 10 years? Somehow, I have this gut instinct that you're a workaholic and will not be satisfied just chilling at home looking after kids. I believe that you'll be busy chasing after one just cause or the other. I believe that in 10 years time, you'll be some sort of Oby Ezekwesili

    Q12. Have you tried Amarula? Its great!

    Q14. Ha, we're quite similar. Though, i'm a science guy, I actually love sociology and psychology. If I was born in a different clime, I would have probably studied that! But you know Nigerian parents and their prejudices

    Q15. What advice would I give my 15 year old self? Start early! Knowing what I know now, If I had a chance to go back, I would be to be more goal-oriented, more disciplined more focused and achieve faster! Perhaps, If i had started early, I would have retired by now and be like what Ada wants to be in 10 years time!
