Inspiration this week : Ernest

“You have to want to succeed as much as you want to breathe”- Eric Thomas.

Hello beautiful people, so today I’d be taking you on a trip through the lens of a very awesomely talented, passionate, and fiiiiine young man.  I met him approximately two months ago, and I tell you it’s been joyfully-inspiring knowing him, asides my significant accumulation of knowledge at St. Nicholas (medicine just got interesting for me by the way 🙂 ) meeting him was the only other reason I didn’t get frustrated most days when I’d have to travel through Lagos traffic from Ikeja to V.I, sometimes in the rain and even snow 😦 in first, a molue (the popular Lasgidi yellow bus), then jumping on a BRT and finally squeezing into a tired keke napep to work everyday sometimes weekends inclusive, all that didn’t matter so far he’d be around. I love him no strings attached. So, this is the story of a young man who dares to believe in himself, and of course I believe in him as well. Hope you enjoy reading this as much as I did!!! 😀
