Hi, I’m Kola (just like Coca-Cola). I am an Orphan Advocate & Blogging Expert.
One of my proudest accomplishments is that I’ve done my own laundry and finances since the age of 9.
Born and raised in Nigeria, I relocated to the United States out of a desire to make a difference. Over the years, I have been involved with orphan care initiatives in Uganda, Congo, Haiti, UAE, Nigeria, and Mexico. All by the grace of God and on a small personal budget.
My work has been featured in books alongside bestselling author, Leo Babauta and my media appearances include highlights in Pace Setters Magazine, Pick the Brain, Celebrating Progress – Africa, and Brazen Careerist to mention a few.
Outside of orphan care travels, I have consulted with Fortune 500 companies in Paris, New York, Sao Paulo, Dallas, and China.
I have been privileged to work with clients and partners such as the Washington Post, the National Society for Leadership and Success, the American Management Association, the Center for Leadership Development and others.
I am a former Ambassador of the Monster Diversity Leadership Program, a Summa Cum Laude graduate of Illinois Wesleyan University, and a Six Sigma Green Belt.
More interestingly, one of my proudest accomplishments is that I've done my own finances and laundry since the age of 9. To request me as a Speaker for your college or emerging leaders event, click here.
