Meet Ayishat Olanrewaju: A Woman Leader (Africanfreelancers.com & Corporately Lucid)

Share this Post:

This blog interview is special for two reasons. Firstly, it’s going to talk about a woman who is exceptional in her approach and secondly, there is no better way to celebrate International women’s day where I get to cover a story that could inspire more women to be strong and wise.

While some women grow with each challenge they face in life and make a mark for themselves, some women are born leaders. Such women are known to keep their heads held high with an utmost humble attitude. They choose to be independent and have the capacity to influence other people.

It is my great pleasure to introduce a woman who has set an example for many. She is the founder of Africa’s first online freelancing community (africanfreelancers.com), owner of Corporately Lucid (a digital marketing agency) and has served as a brand specialist for companies & enterprises.
