Beautiful morning to us today. As usual, thank you so much for checking on us today, it means a lot to my team and I.

Last week, we introduced another segment to the blog called Blogger of the Week, and we interviewed Sharon Okereke Check here if you missed it.

Today, we have a wonderful personality again for the blogger of the week. She is someone we have being stalking for the past one year, and believe me she is a great woman.

Ladies and gentle men lets make welcome Chinomso Grace Okoli as our blogger of the week.

1. Who is Okoli Chinomso Grace?

Grace: I'm God's favorite daughter. A graduate of Microbiology from the University of Lagos, a lifestyle blogger, an entrepreneur and organic lifestyle enthusiast.

2. What does blogging mean to you?

  Grace: Blogging is like a journal. Over time my blog has served as a therapeutic tool, it's soothing to know that someone out there would always come back to read my musings.

Blogging is also a pulpit to reach out to people I may never meet personally, so I have to give them value for their time.

3. What/who inspired you to start blogging?

Grace: I've always wanted to reach out but I didn't know how to do it till I met a friend, Tuke Morgan of Tuke's Quest. She inspired to step out and start

4. Aside blogging, what other thing do you do?

  Grace: I'm currently serving my beloved country so I have a '9-5 job'. Aside that I own an organic hair and skin care brand Shanyi Organics and a modest fashion line Shanyi Couture (in the works) 


5. What are you passionate about?
 
  Grace: I don't want to sound cliche but I'm freaking passionate about God and His plans for me personally. I'm also passionate about organic lifestyle, modest fashion, integrity in business amongst others


6. What has being your greatest challenge in life?


Grace:  Hmmn, right now I can't seem to figure out any but I think my greatest challenge was when I did not understand God's plan and purpose for my life. I was frustrated because things were not working according to my own plan. I'm grateful God showed up and led me through the path of self discovery


7. You are passionate about people living a modest life, what does modesty mean to you as a person?

Grace:  Yes I am. I see modesty as a calling, a Kingdom lifestyle. It's more than fashion but a decision to dress like the daughter of a King that I am


8. Describe yourself in 5 words.

  Grace: Playful, Goal getter, self motivated, creative, hard working 


9. What/who inspires you?
 
  Grace: For what: The picture of God's desired future and plans for me keep me going.
For who: No one specifically. I get my motivation from anyone striving for excellence the godly way in what ever field of life.


10. Advice to young ladies looking up to you for direction?

Grace: I was tempted to say 'look up to God instead not me' but I remember the passage of the Bible that says I am the light of the world, a city set on the top of a hill cannot be hid. So I'd say dear young lady, you are enough. God has empowered you with so much greatness. Never try to be someone else and like I always say, the world validation has nothing on you. You are who God says you are and you are beautiful inside and out.
