My definition of impactful living is influencing humanity with the capabilities God bestowed on me because I believe there is a purpose and uniqueness attached to my “BEING.” This value is adapted from the message of my late teacher, Dr. AbdulHakeem Abayomi, which is, transforming one’s personal idiosyncrasies for the betterment of humanity to please Allah.

As a Linguist, I am passionate about contributing to developing and maintaining languages in society. I also delve into research studies that revolve around solving language issues in the community; hence one of my current research is examining accent discrimination during employment decisions in Nigeria. My current YouTube channel’s goal is to expose people to the uniqueness languages possess, using language as a tool to foster development. My intention centers around visualizing linguistic research findings to the world, utilizing simple “words” that people can easily relate to, thereby connecting people to what is happening in language academia. I realize that people in academia have only consumed the most beneficial studies in the field. Through the Vlog, I intend to expose the world to language diversity, beauty, and idiosyncrasies.
