|Abujafood Spotlight Personality For July, 2013: Blossom Nnodim by Abujafood: 10:43am On Jul 29, 2013|
If you live in Abuja and happen to be social media savvy the name blossom Nnodim should easily ring a bell, why? Because she’s the brain behind the highly influential @blcompere @adoptatweep and @newmedianaija trademarks that have given a new meaning to online interactions here in Abuja and by extension Nigeria.
This young mother of 2 lovely kids is a thought leader in the Nigerian social media space and has to her kitty earned some prestigious recognitions such as being selected to be part of an elite team of 3 from a pool of over 50,000 globally to participate at the Women Deliver Conference in April 2013 - held in Malaysia and was among delegates chosen to monitor the 2012 presidential elections in the United States and learn about their democracy through the International Vistor Leadership Program. She’s also the social media ambassador for Save the Children and project management conference.
She describes herself as “a regular person who puts some extra into the regular” although she’s not a celebrity but by putting the extra into the ordinary she’s able to impact and influence others.
Her journey to becoming an influencer on online social media started less than 5 years ago after she attended a social media bootcamp in Lagos. One particular person that inspired her was Okechukwu Ofili – author of two interesting books; how stupidity saved my life and how laziness saved my life – who sold thousands of copies of his books via twitter. He obviously taught her a few vital lessons about building an audience and selling to that audience and there has been no looking back for her ever since.
Presently she uses her social media platforms especially twitter for social advocacy concentrating heavily on climate change, leadership development, women and children issues. Although she promotes brands for a fee however for NGOs which run projects in line with her social advocacy she promotes them for free.
Although Blossom has a background in Microbiology with an HND she however is more inclined to doing business and she has always been enterprising or as she puts it ‘a hustler’ from her days of schooling at Federal Poly Nekede where she sold clothes and other items to fellow students with her hand-out money which her parents gave her at the beginning of the semester, then wait till a few weeks before exams to buy her textbooks and hand-outs – ofcourse with profit to show for it.
One interesting fact about Blossom is that she admits to discovering her potential to aspire to greatness shortly after expulsion from Federal Government Girls College Owerri for fighting. That was in SS 1 and her Dad empathizing with her transeferred her to a private school were she completed her secondary Education graduating as one of the best in her set with 7 A’s and 2 C’s from being an average student she had transformed into becoming an above average student – somehow hard times can indeed shapen and strengthen a few individuals a reason why circumstances shouldn’t be an excuse to stay down.
Her message to Abuja is “Use less of the plazas and more of the parks for leisure” in her opinion people struggle hard to make a living but are not particularly moved to adequately handle their leisure and we quite agree with her.
It was an honour to have Blossom as our spotlight personality for the Month of July and we wish her all the best in her undertakings.
