We asked Opeyemi Caroline Babalola some questions to get to know her better:


🍽 What person living or dead would you invite to your dream dinner party?


Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a renowned and award-winning Nigerian Author and feminist whose works have been a source of inspiration to many. She wields

words powerfully and creatively as a weapon of self-expression and as a medium of creating social change.


🏝 What three things would you want to take if you had to be stranded on a desert island?


  1. Survival essentials: A lot of water, lasting/nonperishable food items, and snacks.
  2. A diverse collection of books: What better way to keep busy and entertained on an island than a collection of poems, fiction, nonfiction, and mystery novels, etc.?
  3. Writing tools: Preferably a journal and a pen to record the experience.


🧞‍♂️ If you had one wish to improve the world, what would you change?


I would eliminate poverty. As a global issue that affects millions of people, it is a major barrier to accessing necessities such as food, shelter, and healthcare. By eliminating poverty, we can improve the quality of life for countless individuals and help to create a more just and equitable society for all.


If you had chosen another path in life, what might you be doing now?


I would be a mathematics student. Mathematics is deeply creative, it requires thinking outside the box and exploring new ways of solving mathematical problems.  Creativity and mathematics can complement each other, leading to exciting and innovative discoveries, and I am always on the side of deep thinking and what the human brain can achieve when it is used intensively.
