If you watch Ebony Life then Bolanle needs no introduction. She's one of the few reasons I watch Moments With Mo.
Bolanle Olukanni is a very multi-faceted talent in her field, having graduated from Loyola University, Chicago, with a double degree - Bachelors of Arts in both Communications and International Studies. Having lived in various parts of the world - Nigeria, Israel, Kenya and the USA, Bolanle Olukanni decided to start a very helpful blog while she was in school. The blog was called “International Students- A Guide to Life in America” and aimed at “giving advice to the International Student in America.”
Bold and passionate in her chosen fields, she was also a National Qualifier for Competitive Monologue Acting in America, a study in the power of the human voice through social action inspired monologues. In May 2010, while still in school, she won the Loyola University Chicago Kale Williams Award for Exceptional Work in Promoting Human Rights and Social Justice.
There's something so warm and appealing about Bolanle that wins her my admiration everytime I see her. She's gentle and soft spoken and with just a few words she gets her message across very clearly. She's obviously an intelligent woman, and this you can tell barely a few minutes after watching and listening to her talk (on Moments With Mo). She strikes me as a virtuous, highly principled woman with focus and drive.
And I want the world to know just how much I admire her. *big grin*.
