Please introduce yourself and share the 3 key steps that have helped you reach major milestones in life, like becoming a young homeowner:
Hello my name is Aghie Ogirri and I am an HR Consultant at Bank of America. Three steps that have helped me reach major milestones are:
1) Faith in the process and the struggle--you have to believe in yourself and have faith that whatever you set your mind to, you can achieve.
2) Persistence--nothing in life is easy and you have to first understand and accept this fact, because it helps steer you in the right direction and gives you the drive you need to succeed.
3) Goals--in life there are goals you will reach easily and some that will take a while. When you meet goals, pat yourself on the back and when you don't, keep pushing and reinventing the wheel.
Any advice for mothers who may find quarantine to be challenging right now?
Advice to mothers: Be patient with your child and kind to yourself. This experience is unprecedented and just as you are learning how to cope, your child is too. Take this as an opportunity to get to really learn your child and spend time with them. Remind yourself that they do not understand what is happening out here and in some ways, that is a good thing. I have taken this time to engage in some outdoor bike riding, walking and indoor arts and crafts projects with my son. The main focus for me right now is using this extra time to really connect with my son.
Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
In the next 5 years I see myself finding new and innovative ways to continue to make a positive impact in my community and partnering with others to help bring these community projects to life. I also see myself continuing to grow in my spiritual journey as this quarantine has helped me regain my spiritual focus.
