The Real Abisola

I decided to a post that was kind of different today. If you read this blog, you are aware that its all about things that I find pertinent in my life. After all its called Abisola Blog. Abisola being me. (Abby-saw-lah). So in order for you to get to know me,I decided to do a personal update in question and answer form.

  1. What is my name?: My name is Abisola Adeyemo. Pronounced (Abby-saw-lah) It is a Nigerian name meaning “born into wealth”. That leads me to my second question:
  2.  Where are you from? : Well, I was born in Canada. However I am of Nigerian descent. My mom and dad are Nigerian. However, I live in a small town in Central Florida called Lakeland.
  3. Do you have any siblings?: Yes I have a wonderful older sister.
  4. What grade are you in? : I am a senior in high school.
  5.  Where are you going for college? : I have gotten accepted into a couple of schools in Florida. However, I’m still waiting on others to make a decision.
  6. What do you want to major in? I want to major in journalism or at least some form of communications studies.
  7. What career path do you intend on pursuing? My goal is to be a reporter. I want to be an anchor. I particularly would love to focus on entertainment journalism. If I don’t become an anchor , I’d like to write for a major magazine such as Essence. Despite my journalism pursuits, I have always dreamed about being a singer. However, I want to be realistic. That leads me to my next question.
  8. What are some of your hobbies? Well, for starters I love to sing. I have been in numerous choirs through out my life. Songwriting is definitely one of my major hobbies. Apart from music, I am really into writing.(obviously) I am currently writing a novel called Afrocentric. I won’t tell you what its about because its not copy writed yet but just know that its a good one. Whenever its is complete and I have it published, I will let you all know more about it. I  am also an avid runner. I played three sports in high school. I played soccer, cross country and track. Fitness is a huge part of my life. I have even considered potentially becoming a personal trainer on the side. Continually, I love acting. I have been in numerous theatrical shows. One of my most noted roles was playing Aida in my school’s musical production of Aida.
  9. What type of music do you listen to?: I listen to a wide variety of music. My music preference ranges from R&B, hip hop, jazz, pop, musical music, to contemporary rock, and some (very limited) country. If you get to know me you know that my favorite artist is Beyonce. I went to my first concert at her 2013 Mrs. Carter World Tour. Beside Beyonce, I have a deep love for Lauryn Hill. In my head, if they ever made a Lauryn Hill biopic, I would just HAVE to play her. She has inspired me so much. The Miss Education of Lauryn Hill is one of my favorite albums. I also like artists such as Erykah Badu, Chrisette Michelle, and Natasha Bedingfield.
  10. Are you in a relationship?: Nope. I have never been in a serious, committed relationship before. I am only 18 years old, so I feel like I have time. Plus, the majority of high school relationships I see don’t really last.Therefore, I’m hoping that I find my match in college.
  11.  How would you describe yourself?: I would describe myself as an ambivert?: I am neither an extrovert or an introvert. I am a mix of both. I love meeting new people and talking. However, I find it difficult to make close friends. Maybe its because I have slight trust issues. Furthermore, sometimes I like to keep to myself and just have me time. I’m a balance of both. Contradictingly, I would also describe myself as bubbly. I am generally a very happy person. I smile alot. Likewise, I am a very sassy person. I am  very blunt and say things as it is. I find it very hard to sugar coat things.
  12. What religion do you practice?: I am a Christian. I like to say that I don’t have a religion. Christianity for me is a lifestyle.
  13. What are some things on your bucket list. My #1 is sky diving. Then, I’d like to travel the world, go mountain climbing, write a book, and get hot pink highlights.

I hope this post gave you a little bit of insight on who I am as a person. If you have any more questions, just feel free to comment. Thanks for reading.

Yours Truly,

Abisola
