She is so talented. Congrats Kemi.
congrats to her… another proof to our generation that hardwork, dedication and diligence pays off. Sometime we just want quick quick success but things don’t work that way ( at least things that last and worth paying attention to). I celebrate such people that endure the slow times and the times when it seems no one recognizes your work. One day, someone is going to discover such people and they are going to appear as over night successes.
I just finished reading the book Delivering Happiness by the CEO of Zappos and this post could not have come at a better time. Awesome post & timing Stella!
Yes I celebrate her too. She is an inspiration.
