Born in Nigeria and immigrated to America at the age of 9, her experiences grant her opportunity and perspective to write in a distinct way. 

She has a passion for helping other creatives reach their goals. She craves the arts, writing, adventure, and sharing her faith. Anjola resides in TX but has graced many stages across the country and is open to travel engagements.
