Hello Hive community! I have finally mustered the courage to do this after so many months of procrastination. I know the intro post is a compulsory rite for every newbie...so here I am!
I am Bukola Adedayo, 25 years old medical doctor, a self-taught artist, enterpreneur and content creator. My friends also say I'm a born entertainer😉😉.
I am a native of Ondo state and the 3rd child in a family of five. I have two elder brothers who I cherish and love very much. I had the best childhood with them and I am currently enjoying being the baby that gets all the attention😁.
I found out about this awesome community through @jaydr . Had seen a few links on social media before we talked about Hive but I didn't pay attention. Since I learnt about Hive, I have found myself going through various communities in my pastime. I have particularly found interest in the sketchbook and photography lovers community.
What do I plan to contribute to Hive?
I have always loved art and nature. Art has served as a powerful medium to express myself and explore my imaginations. My father who is a farmer and lover of good books may have fueled this passion of mine. Growing up, going to the farm by weekend to check the animals and crops that has been planted was a norm. I remember creating my own little farm at the backyard of the house and being fascinated by seeing something that I had planted just grow and then start yielding fruits.
I have been doing pencil drawings since I was 7 years old. My imperfect drawings always felt perfect to me and I was constantly encouraged by my family.
Creating art has always been a happy place for me and I intend to continue for many more years.
Over the years, I have gotten better by watching tutorial videos and just picking out tips from other people's work. My watch word like one of my favourite artist says; "Remember the 3P's (Practice, Patience and Persistence)".
Apart from drawing, I also picked up some other hobbies like gaming, traveling and exploring new things and places.
My brothers had the greatest influence on these hobbies.
It was our constant day to day living which has now formed an interesting part of the three of us (like the three muskateers😉).
I am also an entrepreneur who sells human hair. My need for good and affordable human hair/wigs was the motivation for this business. Since I started my hair business, I have definitely gotten better and can proudly say that I have been able to serve many others satisfactorily.
As someone who loves to put out content, I believe Hive community is a great space for my work where I can get positive criticisms and also constant encouragement. I also plan to benefit maximally from other posts on hive community, giving feedbacks to other people on this platform. I'm open to directions and guidance from others. I also look forward to exploring new mediums, showcasing my art in other forms, networking and making friends here too.
Thank you very much for reading my intro post.
