Professional Reporter / Copy writer
My name is Fehintola Oladele You can also call me Tola. I am a Nigerian graduate of Mass Communication who has worked as a reporter and a copy writer.
My love for the ‘pen’ and ‘paper’ is natural. Writing for me comes with a sense of fulfilment. Borrowing a phrase from the lyrics of a popular American song group of the 90’s, ‘I search high, and I search low’, writing (and eventually speaking) remain my true love(s) each time I think of what I will always find joy in doing.
I am single, in my 40’s. I love me (no I haven’t given up on marriage – I just love to love me). I love life and I love the Lord
