My name is pronounced - Ah-Day-Aww-La. I'm sure it might be hard for you to pronounce, but in my language/culture - Yoruba from Nigeria, it means crown of wealth, I like to think of it as a good luck name ? If you can't pronounce it, ask me! I'll teach you!

I am the first of four children, born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria. I came to America at the age of 17 to pursue my Undergraduate degree in Accounting at Kennesaw State University (KSU), and with the help of the family I made at KSU, I learnt how to become a globally aware citizen, actively volunteer and also how to be a leader.

For the past 4 years since graduating, I have volunteered extensively in different organizations such as The Giving Kitchen, and Volunteer Income Tax Assistance as a preparer among many others, started a blog, which is linked below called Fine & Casual where I discuss women's interest, worked as an Executive Assistant to a Financial Advisor and an Executive Director, tutored math, economics, and accounting, and finally found my way to working as an Auditor at a financial services firm.

My next journey is to transition from being an Auditor to a Consultant, and also to be an entrepreneur that fosters the growth and development of her country. I am pursuing my MBA because I know it will help lay the foundation I need to succeed in both ventures.
