" Hi Yetunde,  your story is the stuff with which legends are made.  So inspiring.  You are shortlisted to win the grandprize in the #reward4dhustle2
Competiton."

Read Yetunde's Story Below:


My name is Yetunde Safurat Salimon from Ibadan, Oyo.A graduate of Communications and Language Arts from the University of Ibadan. I am a fashion designer and specialized in making Africa- inspired wears, jewelry and accessories, African artworks and home decors) alongside other things.

 I didn't acquire the skill from anyone though, I was simply inspired and motivated by some things around me to start designing, and it was easy to attain prior to be fact that I believe that I am talented and creative.

I joggle working as an editor in a publishing firm and being a designer. I work as an
editor from 9am to 5pm on week days and begin crafting when I return from
work in the evenings, most times, I work through the midnight to meet targets
and deliveries to my customers.

I do not have a store yet, I do all these
designing works in my room in the evenings, nights and all during the
weekends.

Joggling these two things is a bit challenging but the undying passion for creating things keeps me going.

I started the journey during one of those long ASUU strikes in 2013, I was in
300 level in the university then. After enrolling in a French school to while
away the period yet the strike still lingered.

Then, I decided to go and learn sewing. From there, I fell in love with African prints, I used to pick many pieces of
them and make jewelry and accessories with them for myself and family members.

When the strike was eventually called off, I wore one of the pieces I made to school and when one of my course mates saw it on me, she really admired it and said she would like to buy the type from me, I was shocked because I didn't imagine someone paying
me for something I created out of nothing.


The pleasure each time I'm working, especially  if it's on a new design, it’s like I’m having fun, playing and making something out of nothing.

I love my hustle because it's an indispensable part of me. @premiumpensionltd  #Reward4dHustle
