WORDS FROM THE SILVER AWARD WINNER OF THE TONY TOKUNBO FERNANDEZ POETRY COMPETITION 2022

One small step for this #writer with an #Engineering degree 🥳🥳

I’m pleased to share this here. I won the Silver Award for the Tony Tokunbo Eteka Fernandez International Online Poetry Competition 2022.

When I entered the contest, I didn’t expect to win. But I did and it counts for something. I’ve noticed that I often second-guess myself, especially when applying for an opportunity (#internships, fellowships, jobs, #writing contests). I have the let’s-see-how-it-goes mentality, which may not always be healthy. It makes you feel like there’s not much you can achieve and you end up settling for mediocre.

Henceforth, I have decided to not be afraid to take a chance on myself, to be confident about my skills, to excel. Here’s to excellence🥳.
