Most folks in my previous life know me by my full name Doyinsola. It’s meaning (in Yoruba) is joy/sweetness/honey… along those lines lol.

I currently commit 40 hours a week (oh my word!!😳 Lol) working as a Fund Financial Associate for an Investment Management Company – In short, I value and analyse the performance of our client’s investments.

I’m also a sucker for anywhere hot & coastal!
Fave Destinations: San Diego (definitely my current retirement spot) & Roma!
Least Fave Destination: I honestly don’t have one… yet??
Coming from a not so privileged background has allowed me to practice the art of ‘giving back’.. whether through my local church, local charities or sponsored runs.
