I did not forget the day you told me the only thing you wanted for your birthday was to be here. First, I am sorry that this is coming over a week of your birthday. I hope you forgive me. I hate giving excuses but exams and the fact that the blog was not set up were the reasons I couldn’t post here.
Happy belated birthday! I know post birthday stuff is not really it but what can I do?
Don’t let me start with how we are related. Can we just stop at cousin? I know our grandparents are related so how do we get the connection? Arrgh! It feels like a conundrum. Cousin, it is.
Your tenacity is amazing. I was surprised when you told me your age because at that age, I barely had a bearing in life. You are already a professional photographer at a young age among other things. Wow!
I know you are destined for great things even if you can’t see it, I can and I am telling you to keep doing whatever you are doing and strive to be better.
Kehinde Kadiri is 14 and making it! I contemplated sharing your age but trust me when you are young and getting it you boldly tell people your age when asked. You are an inspiration to people (young and old) to not just thrive in school but other things.
I pray that this New Year opens you to opportunities and that you grow in every aspect of your life.
I hope that you get all you can from school, trust me it can be a bore and might want to kill other dreams but find balance. it is not the most exhilarating place to be. I am still on the journey of finding balance at everything so if you can get it early, bravo! I don’t want to sound like the big sister trying to tell you to do this and that.
Don’t forget to enjoy yourself in everything you do. Please, don’t be in a haste to move to the next phase of your life. Enjoy every bit. I am pleading!
You probably might not remember my attempt at being an adviser in two weeks but it just feels good to say it.
Enjoy your year Kk and say me well to your twin.
Happy birthday Kehinde and Taiwo Kadiri.
