Aisha Farooq

Aisha Farooq is an aspiring executive and young mother. After initially dropping out of the University in 2006 to have her son, she returned in 2009 to get her degree. Her determination, resilience and drive to succeed saw her graduate as the Overall Best Graduating Student with a CGPA of 4.93/5.00 in Business Administration at Bells University of Technology, Ota in 2013 and was the class valedictorian.

Immediately after her youth service in a primary school, Aisha was eager for an opportunity to combine knowledge and passion into practical experience. She volunteered as the Human Resource Officer for a small communications company (she still works there on weekends) before joining a consulting firm where she is the executive Assistant to the Senior Partner.

Aisha is passionate about being a positive voice for young women, especially those with her sort of experience. Her personal mantra is “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts”
