“…their background or whatsoever they do doesn’t have the right to put their back on the ground…” Alao Ibrahim
Good evening sir. This is Personality Friday With Mimi. Can we meet you?
I’m Alao Ibrahim Damilola pka Highbee. A 200level student of Tai Solarin University of Education from the department of Political Science.
How did your career in modelling start?
Well, I started 2017 even before I got admitted to TASUED when I was called for Lagos Fashion Show at Onikan, Lagos.
Though, it got to a certain stage I almost left it due to insufficient time frame like lack of time to go for auditions and other stuffs like that.
When I got admitted to tasued, I combined modelling into pageantry. When I contested for Mr. NAPSS and was unopposed, it gave me the courage to go for Mr. COSMAS where I came out victorious. Also, I contested for Face of TasuedFinest which I was among the winners and by the special grace of God, I will be contesting for Mr. TASUED 2020.
Combining your career with academics. How has it been?
It’s been good but it ain’t easy doing multiple things at a time. I never allow anything distract my academic life because that’s my primary objective and its also my number one priority since that’s what brought me to campus.
I have a good and strong CGPA as far as I’m concerned till this present moment.
What has always motivated you to move on with modelling?
What has kept me moving on is the passion and zeal I have for it which has always made me a winner most times and my belief to achieve my goals and objective.
What’s your view on pursuit of career while in school?
I believe you actually need to start from the grassroot and a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Our education doesn’t have the right to deny us of achieving and getting our goals.
What do you have to say to other youths out there?
Well I’m also a youth but I’d advise them that their background or whatsoever they do doesn’t have the right to put their back on the ground and they shouldn’t let their liabilities overcome their possibilities.
