“We don’t come from wealth or privilege, just a lowly young boy from Àgbàdo, but we made it anyway.
“Couldn’t have done it without these 2 phenomenal people, especially my mother! She’s my hero! This bookstore behind us practically raised me.
“It made sure we didn’t starve, and It was the place where I spent countless hours immersed in books, reading about worlds far far away, and expanding the limits of what I could aspire for myself. Today, I’m a graduate of Wharton and Harvard. I’m so grateful!”
