It’s women history month and your girl already made history!!! Last week Thursday, during the social media week Lagos, I was privileged to be a part of it for the first time and not only was I in attendance, I was a speaker at one of the events. It was such a big deal for me to be speaking at the creatives connect building tribes and making an impact through digital influence event alongside amazing people like the founder of popular Nigerian makeup brand YANGABEAUTY, YouTuber, actor and host Akah Nnani and amazon best seller Ederin Edewor. I suffered anxiety the day before because I really couldn’t believe I was seen worthy to be a part of the panel. Anyway in today’s post I’m going to be sharing what I wore and why I wore it, also a few things I learnt from the other panelists.
WHAT I WORE :
Shirt : Thrifted
Pants : Thrifted
Slides : IG @sandalsbymo
Bag : Thrifted
I decided to wear an oversized outfit majorly for comfort, to hide my anxiety beneath my clothes and thankfully that worked just fine. I was so comfortable not trying to ‘suck belle’ or ‘sit right’ and all of that because you could barely see my body through my clothes and because of how everything flowed, I appeared confident and effortlessly chic.
TIPS I LEARNT
⁃ You have a book in you. Ederin shared how God has put in each of us, a book that another person will read and experience that life changing moment they’ve been seeking.
⁃ Akah shared how asking everyone around him including the security man who most people will think has no knowledge about being a show host what they think he can do better behind the camera helped him get accustomed to being behind the camera and be good at it.
⁃ Jon another speaker also advices that you have to do what you have to do first to be where you want to be. For example if you want to be a product photographer like me, you’d have to start taking product photos first for brands to recognize you and want to work with you.
⁃ Ederin also shared that sharing her story genuinely helped her gain good audience, so if you are looking to grow your audience, be very genuine with the voice you have.
⁃ All the speakers including myself all agreed that CONSISTENCY IS KEY in building a tribe and making an impact.
Bonus Tip : Create a mailing list!!
There you have it guys, my top five tips from the session and also my casual laid backer speaker outfit. I’m sorry for the absence, life is coming at me too first and I’m honestly struggling to keep up but I as I’ve always done, I’ve left all that’s happening in my life to God to be my driver so I’m just going wherever he leads. Happy new month, I wish you and yours immense blessings that will cause good history to be made in your life.
