Can I meet you?
Well, some people know me as Nike, while some call me Yetunde. My full names are Olasiyan Olanike Yetunde from Apomu, Isokan Local Government Area of Osun state, Nigeria. I was born and bred in Ibadan and i have lived in Ibadan all my life. I am in my late twenties and my face is well decorated with pimples. I graduated from LAUTECH with honours, yes B.Tech in Environmental Biology. I am a professional blogger now. I live and work in Lagos, Nigeria.
What or Who do you believe ?
I believe in God.
Your religious view?
Fear God and obey His commandment, for this is the whole duty of man.
Any Childhood Dream or Fantasy?
I dreamt of being a diplomat, my dream course was International Relations. Yet, i still saw myself as a newscaster and journalist. I am a journalist now and I guess i can still be everything i want to be. Dreams always find a way of coming true, trust me.
What informed your decision to switch career?
I never really wanted to be a scientist but sciences found me and hung on my neck. Later, i realised that life would be too boring if i focused on micro organisms, ecosystem and environmental pollution alone so i decided to focus more on nature. I use my biological mind to write poems on nature and to study the potency of green leaves. I am first and foremost a blogger, writer, poet and scientist. I am happy to combine all the professions. I still have my eye on HR in the nearest future. I just can’t be held down by one profession so i can move on whenever i like. Don’t be surprised, it’s part of being versatile.
Obviously reading, writing and meditating.

Guys you can’t stand
Guys who feel i am too ambitious because am fulfilling a calling[like my boss Jonathan Eze], who are afraid of a woman’s success, who lie, smokes and womanize. Oh my gosh! I hate womanizers with perfect hatred. I don’t like fat guys with fat heads. Bad smells from the armpit repulses me so i can’t stand unhygienic guys. I can’t stand guys without a good and acceptable command of English. Guys who live in their parent’s apartment after graduating and working because they find it convenient [no, that guy can’t take responsibility].
What you won’t be caught dead wearing
A micro mini strapless dress or skirt neither will i be caught dead in a swim suit [ i don’t swim anyway]

Paris [see paris and die- this slogan depicts the sheer beauty of paris], the Taj Mahal.
