The world is a large book with so many stories and so many pages. If you don’t flip, you’ll be stuck with only one narrative. If you don’t write, you’ll let others narrate your ending.

Iyenani Zabadi

Administrative Manager

Being a type two, I love dedicating my time to meaningful projects like Sarauta. As a wing one, I love order and efficiency so much so that I find fulfillment in ensuring things are just right.

Life is chaos, success is completely arbitrary, and confidence is everything.
