Lhola ADEBANJO

Lhola Adebanjo is currently a student of Economics Education at the Onabanjo University, Ogun State. Before her admission to the higher institution, she has been a motivational speaker organizing platforms under the S.M.I.L.E leadership program to train and develop younger students in public schools. She personally owns a platform called D.Y.I, Discovering You Initiative and also, a co-founder of Franktalkwithifeandomo which is a WhatsApp engagement platform for engaging the youths.

Lhola’s story is such an inspiration to younger folks. She was an abandoned love child of her parents to the kindest hands of her late grandmother. The demise of the grandmother meant a little or no chance for her to advance her academic pursuit to the higher institution but her sterling performance at the S.M.I.L.E program won her several awards including a scholarship for her BSc. Program. However, when she was in Junior Secondary School, she began to represent her school in writing, quiz and debating competitions. Her first inter-school competition award came from writing competition, titles, “Nigeria, the most developed economy in Africa”.

Due to her uncommon sense of responsibility and commitment to academics and extracurricular activities in school, she always found herself assuming leadership roles. In SS3 she won the heart of her school principal and teachers to become the Head Girl.

She is a promising ambitious young lady at her 18, trained photographer, lover of Artworks/music and indigene of Ogun State.
