Today’s post is about 24-year old Dr. Adedunmola Oluwo.
Dedun moved to Debrecen, Hungary at the age of 17 to pursue a medical degree, one year after school she started her first business, Hair by Dedun which catered to every hair texture there is, that same year she also started DedunCooks, a Nigerian food catering business as she quickly realized the opportunity which stood before her. The university had quite a few students from her home country with nowhere around that catered to their food needs. Two years after, while still running both businesses successfully, Dedun started up another outfit called Dedun’s Cakes, a cake and pastry company also solely run by her. And in 2016, she started Belle Artistry by Dedun, a makeup and beauty business. All four businesses run with no help whatsoever while still managing to go through medical school without any failure. These helped her gain utmost financial independence from her retired single mother back home in Nigeria.
Her determination finally paid off when she successfully sponsored herself to Rome Business School to study M.Sc. Health Management. She says she shares her story to inspire others, it doesn’t matter what your situation is, you can always challenge yourself to achieve great things whether you are a 17-year-old like she was or older. She is also a motivational speaker and writer; she aims to use her voice to develop the drive in the millennial generation as well as the younger ones to achieving the unachievable by harnessing your immediate environment. Dedun runs an inspirational blog called “Dr. Dedun – The Doctorpreneur” and a YouTube Channel.
Dedun’s story is one that should encourage people to challenge themselves, more.
