Olufunmilola C. Ladeinde was recently interviewed by TheCelebrity.Online Magazine and below is the Q&A session we had with Ms. Olufunmilola.
How do you introduce yourself?
Olufunmilola C. Ladeinde: I wait for people to first ask me for this information before going straight to sharing it. I find that by first giving people the space to talk about themselves, this helps me gauge how much information is worth giving about myself, also allows me to fully understand the question before giving my answer.
How was the transition from your childhood into adulthood/teenage and what good and bad things do you remember?
Olufunmilola C. Ladeinde: I don’t think there was a clear distinction from childhood to adulthood. I would like to think that there are still some aspects of me that are childlike. Children have beautiful qualities- they are the best of us; I would like to think there are still aspects of childlikeness that exist within me, such as my excitement for life and the fact I still dream. I think where the best of adulthood comes into this is the fact that I now have the freedom to chase and live my dreams.
Good things – I remember always being fearless – I could scale any height and not be afraid of falling (I did not grasp the fact that my bones could break – and thank God, as daring as I was I never ended up in the A&E). I can’t think of anything bad because all things gave worked (and by God’s grace are still working) together for my good. I am the woman I am today because of the experiences, encounters and lessons I had as a child. I love the adult me – most times.
Struggle – What hardships have you faced during your life?
Olufunmilola C. Ladeinde: Learning to not be consumed by bitterness despite the evils there are in the world; also yo never dim my shine no matter how easy it is to blend in.
What things people usually do not know about you?
Olufunmilola C. Ladeinde: I am shy and battle anxiety at times; I am not as confident or brave as people think. I am my own worst critic.
What make you unique from your competitors in the industry and life?
Olufunmilola C. Ladeinde: I am me; I am intentional about not trying to fit in. I am happy to break the mold (within reason) in order to remain true to myself.
What are your diet preference and physical measurements?
Olufunmilola C. Ladeinde: I love food! Body size shows this – I enjoyed my journey to overweight and have no regrets. I am now working on getting to a healthier size for me because I don’t like to feel restricted, even in my health.
What expert advice would you like to share?
Olufunmilola C. Ladeinde: Balance is everything! Love to work, but make time to enjoy rest. If you have no time to reflect then you’re working too much. If you’re able to compare yourself with people/judging others then you have too much time on your hands – get to work. When you find purpose on what you do, balance is what keeps the passion alive.
