About Me

Hiiii, I’m Seun Olagunju, but you can also call me Tirzah. It’s a Hebrew name meaning God’s delight and it is pronounced /ti:za/ with a silent r, at least that’s how I like to call it.

I’m really just a simple girl who loves to teach and tell stories. Gosh! I am such a storyteller but it’s good because now, I have a blog that people love, on which I tell stories and basically just share the things I learn in life. If by reading my stories, you get inspired to become more or you get more enlightened on some avoidable common life mistakes, then I would have achieved my aim for starting the blog in the first place.

a little more about me

I studied English at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife {no, that’s not why I like writing} but presently, I use my writing skills to help organizations and entrepreneurs create content strategies and develop content on different channels so that their stories, products, and services can be made aware to the public. A lot of people would identify me as a writer, and that’s because, besides this blog, I’ve created a number of works for others that I’m really proud of.

Currently, I work full time with a tech company in Lagos, Nigeria, as a Product Manager. Coming from a background in Arts & Humanities, I found it a bit daring to have made the switch into tech., but I’m glad I was given that opportunity because I enjoy my work and love working with my team.

When I’m not doing this, I’m either giving back to society or taking on social projects, the most of which are focused on education, gender equality and self-esteem development. Some of these projects would include ‘the Read Campaign’, the ‘I am Beautiful’ campaign and the ‘Beyond the Surface’ Initiative. I love volunteering, so when I see an organization doing something that I love, I jump in to support any way I can. A few of the organizations I serve with as a volunteer are: HerLibrary, Beyond the Classroom and Lend A Hand, Africa. I’m also a member of the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI).

I think it’s important you know that I started this blog in 2015, failed at it and started again. One thing that has however kept me thus far is how much I really love sharing this space with you; I love talking to people and I really love it when you reach out and talk to me too; I love it when I talk about self-esteem (I could talk about it all day!); I love it when I talk about Jesus; I love it when I get an opportunity to give back to people; I love to read books, buy books and other bookish related things, like journals, sticky notes, pretty black ball pens, and highlighters. I love dogs and also really really love plantain.

I could say more, but even I am still in a place of self-exploration and discovery. I’m on a journey to living my life purposefully, one day at a time and making tremendous impact in somebody’s life while at it. You’ll get to know more about me from the things I share here.
