VOLUNTEERS TUESDAY: MEET DEMILADE LAWAL
Tell us about yourself
I am Demilade Lawal, a biochemistry graduate from Bowen University.
I am passionate about people, their happy moments especially. And I strive to do what it takes to see them happy. Also, I am passionate about making impacts on the younger generation through mentoring and teaching.
Do unto others what you want to be done to you (whether they deserve it or not), and then love yourself and love others (whether or not they deserve it), I believe this brings a lot of peace into the equation.
Likes and Dislikes
I don’t like people being cheated or taken for granted, I believe respect shouldn’t be age dependent, everybody deserves to be respected.
I like a whole lot of things and activities but I would rather not bore you with details. To mention just a few, I like when people are treated with respect (obviously), I love homely places and children, and I enjoy interacting with people (weird ones especially).
What inspires you?
Hmm, I am inspired majorly by my environment and the people in it.
How did you learn about OAC and reason(s) for joining?
I learnt about OAC through my elder sister who was Victoria’s course mate and roommate. She told me about it because she knew I was interested in things and activities involving children and giving back to the society, so it seemed like a really good idea to join OAC.
Experience so far
It has been more than worth it so far, OAC has an amazing team spirit that keeps it running.
What’s your best moment in OAC?
My best moment in OAC so far was the visit to LUTH (Children’s ward), it was a very emotional one. Was indeed touching and eye opening, and made me reflect on a lot of things, reminded me there’s more to life than myself.
What do you think of OAC in the Universe?
OAC in the Universe? World changing idea!
Don’t leave out the little things, they count.
